[meteorite-list] METEORITE MARKET DISCUSSED ON PUBLIC RADIO

I took part in this interview a couple of weeks ago, good to hear it made it
out there. At least on my part I talked about how the internet and ebay have
made meteorites more available and more affordable to everyone. Now for the
price of a fast food dinner for two... you could instead buy a piece of the
moon or mars. This was NOT the case a few years ago.
Not sure how much of my interview made it on the air, but the reporter and I
recorded for 35 minutes! The show must have had some exposure, because I
have had 2 thousands more hits than usual in my ebay store!

Yesterday, Sept. 13, the NPR program "Marketplace"
had a short story about the market for meteorites. The text
of the program can be found at:
There is also an audio link entitled "Listen to This Story."
The program featured interviews with Michael Cottingham,
Randy Korotev of Washinton University (St. Louis), Dave
Radosevich, and Robert Pearlman of CollectSpace.com.
The interviewer actually used the classic Carl Sagan phrase
"billions and billions," but in the financial context that the
"meteorite trade is worth billions and billions of dollars."
The program "Marketplace" is public radio's stock market,
corporate news, and big business news segment.
Worth a listen, meteorite fans, if for no other reason than
to hear meteorites make the financial news.
