Reminds me of an article on the stock market from yesterday:


"It's in people's minds," Shiller explains. "We're just recording a measure of
what people think the stock market is worth. What the people who are willing to
trade today ? who are very, very few people ? are actually trading at. So we're
just extrapolating that and thinking, well, maybe that's what everyone thinks
it's worth."

Works the same way for meteorites, I'd say.
