Number of people who contact* me each month about meteorites
* nonscientists: e-mail, letters & packages, telephone, walk-ins
About 87% of the people who contact me are asking about a rock that might be a meteorite, 7% have a question or comment about information on my web sites, and 6% want to sell me something.
Most people contact me several times during the course of a year.
I no longer answer the telephone from people calling about questions about meteorites. I can't identify meteorites over the telephone.
