Hi Ari,

You can go out an buy a new car or some other sort of transportation today for no
doubt around $20,000 or you could go out and buy that amount of meteorites. In ten
years time you will be lucky to sell the car for $4,000 or $5000. However you could
probably sell the meteorites for what you have in them or if you are lucky or skillful
you might be able to sell for $25,000 to $35,000 if well cared for. Hey look at all
the extra miles that meteorites have on them!!!!!

I don't advocate buying for investment purposes but there are few things that hold
there value as meteorites do or at least have up until this point. As long as we have
a good world economy they will have value. Also its not the reason I buy them but
rather what they represent, where they come from, the secrets they hold and their
great age.

Also go build a spacecraft and have it rendezvous with an asteroid (please get the
launch permits!), land and retrieve material and bring it back, recover it and figure
out how much that costs compared to the fairly affordable prices on the ordinary
chondrites we have these days. Meteorites are very cost effective when bringing them
into proper perspective. One last thing is your wife wouldn't have any ground to stand
on if not for the planetesimals that now make up this Earth and representative of the
left over material we call meteorites. Best!
