Born in 1976, I was a 7 years old child fell in the astronoy.
I acquire my first "meteorite" at age of 16. It was in fact a simple indochinite... But this stone was wonderfull, it comes from,space, a real alien !! :-) That was my idea at this moment.
Since 20 years ago, I collect meteorites from various origines, I teach about them in school, in astro clubs,...
I purchase it, trade another, find others...
Some "life finding" increases more and more the passion; as the discovery of the third largest european meteorite, 435 Kg in north of France; or recently a little meteorite forgot in Belgian school for many years. Others desert finds from Morocco, Lybia & Mauritania put more passion in the collection.
I'm project manager for management solutions in industrial environment. I can say that meteorites help me to escape out of stress, out of usuals problems of my function.
A big passion, as you read it!! :-)
