I remember as a kid seeing ads in the back of magazines for this thing that you
drop a sample of anything into, and then it points out the location of more of
it-- be it gold, silver, platinum, truffles, or the One True Elvis. It would be
great to have one of those, drop a meteorite sample in it, and find all the
small meteorites that are doubtless in the ground (in various states of decay)
not too far from any of us. Unfortunately, those devices are utterly fictional.
