11th Annual James R. Arnold Lecture

ABSTRACT: Since 1969 nearly 50,000 meteorite specimens have been systematically recovered from the East Antarctic icesheet, 20,000 of these by the US Antarctic Search for Meteorites program. These samples have done more than fill the larders of museums and research institutions; they have fundamentally changed our understanding of the solar system. Antarctic meteorites are the only reliable, continuous, and readily available source of new planetary material, naturally swept up by the Earth as it cascades through space, and revealing the fundamental building blocks of the solar system.
