But, strangely enough, my interest in meteorites has taken me all the way to Antarctica. I am sure it is a great surprise to many students that the world's coldest continent Antarctica is also the world's BEST place to find meteorites.

The ice sheets of East and West Antarctica collect ­meteorites and other kinds of particles that fall to the Earth from space. Most of the meteorites that impact on the Earth fall into the oceans. While meteorites fall in a random fashion all over the globe, the East Antarctic ice sheet is a "desert of ice," a stark scene that enhances the likelihood of.

There are meteorites missing in Antarctica, and a group of British researchers plans to go find them. The icy continent is a heaven for meteorite hunters, in part because flowing ice concentrates.
