‘They Came from Outer Space’ Exhibit at AZ Challenger Space Center


they came from outer spaceThey Came from Outer Space, focuses on the findings of author, explorer, photographer, and meteorite specialist Geoff Notkin.

They Came from Outer Space features some of the coolest space rocks found by Notkin and his partner in crime Steve Arnold, who co-hosts “Meteorite Men” on the Science Channel. The exhibit also features some of the clothing and equipment used throughout Steve and Geoff’s adventures.

One of the coolest features of the exhibit is the pallasite meteorite that weighs over 200 pounds! This meteorite was discovered in the very first episode of “Meteorite Men” and was beuried deep within a muddy field in Kansas. This space rock is packed full of alien gemstones, has never been on display in public, and is worth up to $10,000!
