Water Bear Zoo

We now have a Water Bear Zoo!

The “Zoo” contains one of the most indestructible creatures on this planet.

This is the Martian Materials Meteorite Store Water Bear Zoo

The Water Bears are also called Tardigrades. They are incredible and can survive extreme environments. In fact they are extremeofiles.

The Water Bear Zoo is open to the public during normal business hours.

We suggest you bring a VERY powerful magnifying glass. Even then success is not guaranteed.

The Water Bear Zoo is located in Pottsville Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania School Districts and schools that have the Space Materials STEM Program

Science Leaning Schools in the Area:
Panther Valley School District
Minersville School District
Blue Mountain (April) School District
Philadelphia School District
Gillingham Charter School
The Dancing Dandelion (pre-K)
Crescent Academy (Wilksbarre)

Scheduling Soon:
Pottsville School District
Easton School District
Allentown School District

Seriously confused on why your child’s school is not on the list?

If your school is NOT on this list, it’s currently not taking advantage of the FREE Space Materials STEM program. The program costs nothing for the school. Leaving many questions on why the program is not available in your child’s school. Typically you need to call the science Curriculum Director of your school district and ask why your child is not getting the same high level education as others in the area?

Political Science Stones

If you are getting frustrated with the current War on Science.     Then this monthly STEM kit that includes Meteorites is for you.   It teaches Astronomy, Geology,   Physics ,  Planetary Formation,  even astrobiology.

Every Month we will send you a new package, below are some examples of previous boxes that we send out monthly.

The purpose of these kits are to teach science, in spite of the current anti-science environment. Much of the proceeds go to running the FREE STEM program for schools. It’s a good cause please support this, otherwise the anti-science team wins. Which is very bad for all of us.

 




Payment goes though Yooter Interactive and Paypal.

Note: Rare Earth Magnets are incredibly powerful. Please watch children when they are playing with them.

Alien Space Rocks

Alien Meteorite Package
Meteorite and Powerful Rare Earth Magnet. This kit demonstrates that Iron exists in space rocks.

This package went live on DEC. 16, 2017, nicknamed “We are not alone”.




Lunar Meteorite Fund for Garfield Square

We are placing a “Stand On the Moon” Lunar Meteorite downtown Pottsville, PA in Garfield Square, we raised just under $200 over the summer. The city will help but only to an extent. I think this project is worth to Schuylkill County than just $200. Currently there is nothing, no monument or even a note that John F Kennedy stood downtown Pottsville.

The grand plan involves an Earth Rock (anthracite coal) placed 2.5 km away at Bob Weaver. Allowing an Earth-Moon 5k Race. It will be called the Apollo Run.

Donate any amount you can. It’s a good cause.





I don’t know how Interstellar Object Oumuamua was formed.

As a person that works with space rocks for a living. I can tell you that I never seen a space rock that looks like Oumuamua .   I have physically worked with thousands of Space Rocks.

I have seen mini-barbell tektites. I have “normal” stones , I have elongated , I have near spheres and flat stones. I have never seen nor do I know how to plausibly explain the formation of a pipe in space. It’s a near miracle object in my opinion.

My thoughts on this topic are subjected to change as more information becomes available. This is my current thoughts of The European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) press release and artist rendering of this interstellar object that was detected zipping though our solar system at 26km per second. This is the light curve.

This plot shows how the interstellar asteroid `Oumuamua varied in brightness during three days in October 2017. The large range of brightness — about a factor of ten (2.5 magnitudes) — is due to the very elongated shape of this unique object, which rotates every 7.3 hours. The different coloured dots represent measurements through different filters, covering the visible and near-infrared part of the spectrum. The dotted line shows the light curve expected if `Oumuamua were an ellipsoid with a 1:10 aspect ratio, the deviations from this line are probably due to irregularities in the object’s shape or surface albedo.

From that we can deduce the rough shape of the object. Which looks roughly like this:

This artist’s impression shows the first interstellar asteroid: `Oumuamua. This unique object was discovered on 19 October 2017 by the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawai`i. Subsequent observations from ESO’s Very Large Telescope in Chile and other observatories around the world show that it was travelling through space for millions of years before its chance encounter with our star system. `Oumuamua seems to be a dark red highly-elongated metallic or rocky object, about 400 metres long, and is unlike anything normally found in the Solar System.

This is the trajectory of Oumuamua.
Again the object is the first innerstellar object ever seen in our solar system. It’s trajectory is worth looking at as well.

Here is my problem with Oumuamua.

The object appears to be made of iron. There is very little or any dust detected around the object ruling out things like comets or “rubble pile” type asteroids. However as with any semi-solid body, say melted iron or rocks and spin it you get a barbell not a pipe.

It would look similar to Kleopatra, an asteroid in our solar system.

Possible Solution

Maybe it ran through the atmosphere of an exoplanet or star (something with a substantial gravity well) , melted, and reformed?  An incredible shot, because it would have to have been a perfect shot or tidal forces would have deformed from a pipe. If this is the case you’ll possibly find gasses trapped in the stone from that exoplanet or star.

The shape of the object alone likely can’t prove it’s artificial for example.   However it’s a very weird object.   I don’t know exactly what it is.

 

Alien Mud

This is highly iron magnetic material from outer space….literally. The Material is made from crushed Meteorites (Providence : North West Africa XXXX) AKA: Alien Mud. This is literally the ultimate gift for Christmas, for anyone from space geeks to office executives to sit on their desk.
