DMNS Meteorite Collection

2020-02-10 | Dr. John Hopkins

Our friends at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, led by Dr. James Hagadorn, the Curator of Geology at the museum, recently released a fine 36-page publication The Meteorite Collection of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. It contains a fascinating history of the collection with back stories on some of the many specimens, along with a reference list and a full catalog of the collection. It’s available as a free pdf download, but the paper copy is well worth the $2.71 price-point (how do they manage to sell it for so little??).
