Caught a piece of the "The Ten Ultimate Treasures" which was broadcast on
the Learning Channel last night. Number 7 was Bob Haag's meteorite
collection. You might want to catch it when it is broadcast again.
Dr. Alan Rubin (UCLA) was also interviewed and if one looked real hard you
got a glimpse of list member Mike Farmer with Bob Haag when they went
chasing the Bilanga fall.
Aside from a couple of "Hollywood" effects it was pretty good. They had Bob
flying a powered parasail(?) over what looked like an Australian crater then
cut to him with a metal detector in Arizona(?) searching for meteorites.
After the obligatory encounter with a rattlesnake, he found and dug up a
nice double fist-sized clean specimen. If it were only so easy :-)
Regards to all,
