Hunting Down The Most Valuable Meteorite

Geoff and Steve revisit the site where their hunting partnership began back in 1997: the Imilac pallasite strewnfield high in Chile’s Atacama Desert. It is winter at 11,000 feet in the driest desert on the planet, but with new equipment and grim determination, the guys persevere through the harshest of conditions and — on the desolate plains of Vaca Muerta — make one of the most significant discoveries of their careers.

For thousands of years, meteorites have slammed into the Earth’s surface carrying an invaluable record of the origins of our solar system. But finding meteorites on Earth, some buried over centuries by thick layers of dirt and sediment, is no easy task.

Meteorite hunters Steve Arnold and Geoff Notkin travel to some of the most remote locations around the world to explore the scientific and financial value of meteorites. Featuring treks in Chile, Sweden, Australia, the US, Mexico, and more, these meteorite men meet with top scientists, geologists, astronomers, and meteorite experts to reveal a deeper understanding of how meteorites have helped to build our solar system and shape our planet.
