NO MOON IN VIENNA – Fundraising to acquire lunar meteorite Oued Awlitis 001 has unfortunately failed
The acquisition of the beautiful lunar meteorite Oued Awlitis 001 (410,43 g) for the meteorite collection of the Museum of Natural History in Vienna has not been successful. An adequate long-term curation of this precious meteorite in the world’s most historic and prestigious meteorite collection is thus not possible.
Thank you very much to all who have contributed!
(Contributors will receive a full refund of their contribution.)
