I am an author, adventurer, meteorite recovery specialist, photographer, television host and producer, and have traveled much of the world in search of meteorites and other natural history wonders. I hosted the multi award-winning TV adventure series Meteorite Men for Discovery Science and won two Emmys for my work in educational television with STEM Journals. I currently host a web series, Meteorite Minute, which is viewable free on YouTube.
I have guest-starred on NASA EDGE, Ancient Aliens, American Chopper, Cosmic Collisions, How The Earth Was Made and many other programs. I am a member of world-famous Explorers Club, as well as The International Meteorite Collectors Association (IMCA), and The Association of Applied Paleontological Sciences (AAPS). I am on the Board of Governors of the National Space Society (NSS), the Board of Directors of The Astrosociology Research Institute (ARI) and the Advisory Board of Deep Space Industries (DSI).
I am a TEDx speaker and have been interviewed by The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, Forbes, Crain’s and Space.com and have appeared on Coast to Coast and the Today show. The asteroid 132904, discovered at Mount Palomar, was officially named “Notkin” by the Minor Planet Center in recognition of my work in science, education, and the arts.
“Aerolite” is an archaic, rarely-used English word for meteorite. I was born in New York City, but grew up in England, and called Europe home for more than twenty years. I have lived in London, Boston, New York, and the American Southwest. Aerolite Meteorites’ mission is to make top quality, affordable meteorites available to collectors and institutions. Meteorite sales from this website go directly towards funding future expeditions and those expeditions, in turn, make new published works and research possible. A question we are often asked is do we have “meteors for sale.” Meteors are the shooting stars we see in the night sky. Any part of a meteor that makes it to earth becomes a meteorite, so we actually have “meteorites for sale,” not meteors.
If you are interested in purchasing an authentic meteorite, please contact us. We work with collectors and enthusiasts of all levels. We were all beginners once, and we welcome new collectors! If you have a question, please ask — that’s how we all learn. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service. We ship anywhere in the world, and make sure every one of our customers is happy.
And now, I invite you to explore our website, and begin your own adventure in the world of meteorites. Highlights include our Gallery of Meteorite Photography, Meteorite Sales Catalogue, and our collection of meteorite hunting photos which showcases my best adventure photography.
Thank you for your interest in Aerolite Meteorites. We are proud to make our home
in the great city of Tucson, Arizona — the meteorite capital of the world.
Watch the skies!
President, Aerolite Meteorites, Inc.
