I just received an email from a farmer with an Admire, Kansas, snail-mail address. He asks:

"A glass and metal laced boulder on my farm, sets on a pocket of powdered rock that contains hundreds of spherules per teaspoon of dust. Could this boulder be a piece of crust from the ill-fated young planet that contained the Admire pallasite? "

And he sent a fascinating batch of photos.


I don't know the answer to his question. Maybe some of you do.
