RAPC Internship: Reweighing, Photography & Storage of the Murchison Meteorite

2012 High School Summer Internship Project

Project Description: The objective for this internship is to weigh, photograph and repack one of our most scientifically valuable meteorites.  Individual specimens have to be weighed, photographed and stored in new cabinets.  The images and weights will be entered into the database.  Most of the work needs to be performed with gloves (vinyl or nitrile). The intern should be able to work very carefully, clean, detailed oriented, and have basic digital photography and computer skills.  Database skills are preferable.

Project Leader: James Holstein (Collections Manager)
