Allan Hills 76009
Since 1976, the Antarctic Search for Meteorites Program, or ANSMET, has found more than 10,000 meteorites. This sample, Allan Hills 76009, was one of the first Antarctic meteorites collected by ANSMET. Discoveries made by the ANSMET program have revolutionized the science of meteorites. For instance, meteorites found in Antarctica helped prove that these objects could come from Mars and the Moon.
