Hello Martin and list,
Martin wrote, trying to figure out what the Center is: "The only difference
to the situation before would be, that the University of Arizona will add on
its capacity to classify meteorites. And that from now on, if someone wants
to have classified his/her meteorite in only a few weeks, it will be for
free. That's an improvement."
During Killgore's talk at the Micheal Blood auction, he mentioned there
would be "classification opportunities." So after the talk, I asked Dante
and Marvin, "What does "classification opportunities mean?"
>From their answer, to get meteorites classified through the center, you will
have to join a subscription like service. That you would pay a certain fee
and it would allow you to get so many stones classified. Numbers were not
worked out at the time.
