|The meteorite was discovered enclosed in blue ice. The meteorite and enclosed ice were collected as a coherent block and transported to JSC that way, and kept in JSC freezers until April 2010. Ice and meteorite were then transported to the Cold Region Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) in Hanover NH, for extraction of meteorite from the ice using cold room equipment. After removal, the meteorite was transported back to Houston, still frozen, and introduced into the Meteorite Processing Lab. It was thawed and characterized following the standard procedures for the lab, and, of course, is available for study. Samples of the enclosed ice may be available for additional studies if there is interest – please inquire with the JSC Antarctic Meteorite Curation group.
