METEORITE MEN

Meteorite Men

Geoffrey Notkin and Steve Arnold have searched the world for remnants of meteorites for years. The duo uses inventive, cutting-edge technologies to detect these treasures from space as each are often buried over centuries by substantial amounts of dirt and sediment.

Meteorite Men brought viewers to the farmlands of Brenham, Kansas as Notkin and Arnold searched for pieces of a large meteorite that fell to earth thousands of years ago. Brenham is considered a hot bed for meteorites — more have fallen in that area per square mile than anywhere else in the United States. Viewers got a firsthand look at the unique science of meteorite hunting when the team uncovered several large meteorite pieces using large metal detectors fashioned to ATVs and trucks.

Join Notkin and Arnold on a quest to find answers to The Tucson Ring Mystery — one of the most intriguing anomalies in the meteorite world. The Meteorite Men also search outside of Odessa, Texas for a massive, 65,000 year-old meteor buried deep in the ground, and scour West Texas for tiny pieces of the "Ash Creek Meteorite," which caught the public's attention when it streaked across the sky on February 15, 2009.
