One of those people, Steve Arnold, has his own company, the Intel-national Meteorite Brokerage firm in Tulsa, Okla., which he put together in January. Arnold, who graduated with a business administration degree from Oral Roberts University in 1991, sees opportunity in outer space. "Trades are more common because most of the time, museums and universities are interested in them, and they don't have much money," Arnold said. "But there is a collector's market, and much like a lot of other collectibles, there are different reasons why people want different meteorites." Arnold's primary area covers much of Kansas, including the Salina area and the western half of the state. Most of his meteorite business has been buying and selling for a profit, but now he's moved to brokering the meteorites for those lucky enough to find one. He's traded a nest of dinosaur eggs to Fort Hays State University in Hays for some meteorites, and he's traded straight up with the Kansas Cosmosphere in Hutchinson, where he received a smaller, rarer meteorite for a 150-pound monster more akin to a Cosmos- phere display. He's also purchased and sold thousands of dollars worth of meteorites. Meteorite madness A McPherson College biology professor, Harvey Nininger, pioneered meteorite recovery in the late 1920s, according to information provided by Arnold and the college. While walking home in November 1923, the story goes, Nininger saw a fireball streak across the sky. Nininger's scientific curiosity got the best of him, and he decided to search for it. His success rate in finding meteorites grew when he offered to buy them for $1 a pound. He later bought an 800-pound stone by pawning his possessions. He became the curator at the Denver Museum of Natural History and had more than 5,000 meteorites at one point. The collection has since been divided between the British Museum of Natural History and Arizona State University. Kansas has produced more meteorites, mile for mile, than any other place in the world, with more than 13, according to the British museum's Catalogue of Meteorites, which lists every known meteorite in the world. The largest known meteorite to land in Kansas was in 1948, when a 2,000-pound rock smashed into Norton County. Collecting meteorites has become a hip pastime thanks to the interest sparked by the Mars rocks that supposedly contained signs of life. Each group of collectors wants them for different reasons, Arnold said. Museums like the pretty ones. Scientists want the rare ones or ones that contain certain miner- als such as iron. Jewelry store owners like the ones that contain crystals. Collectors just want them, and just how much they want them depends on how much news they attract. In 1992, in Peekskill, N.Y., a town of about 20,000, a blazing fireball shot across the sky and slammed into a car. The meteorite just happened to travel where a high school football game was being played, and as a result it was captured on film by many home video cameras. The media splashed that film all over their broadcasts, and suddenly, the space rock, ordinary by meteorite standards, was a hot item, Arnold said. "If they attract a lot of attention, there are going to be a lot more people who will want them," Arnold said. "That's how I got started — I read about the more famous ones." Space always was an interest for Arnold, and he began to think of his meteorite searches as treasure hunts. Most of the lucky finders are farmers who stumble across the rocks; others, like Stewart, have displayed them on their mantlepieces for years before realizing they were worth something. "I talked to one guy who had this rock in his family since 1902," Arnold said. "That's not uncommon." Of course, for every meteorite Arnold has bought or sold, he's received 50 phone calls from people who are convinced they have found a space rock and instead have found a rock from a backyard garden. "I've had 50 'meteowrongs' for every meteorite," Arnold said. "But I don't want to discourage people. I'm more than willing to go through the 50 to get the one." The Hula Hoop and meteorites Kim Arnold, planetarium director for the Kansas Cosmosphere, which has since shelved its 150- pound Gibeon Iron meteorite display in the interest of change, said that 10 years ago, the only places interested in meteorites were institutions. As a result, many of the dealers would break up the meteorites and sell pieces of them. Kim Arnold isn't related to Steve Arnold. "You didn't have a whole lot of money changing hands because there wasn't a whole lot of money," Arnold said. "The scientists would just want a few grams. Then they found the life-on-Mars rock. Collectors want a showpiece, or in some cases, they will cut up the meteorites, take the crystals out of them, put them in necklaces or jewelry and tell them they have special powers. That's really sad." The meteorites have become something for people who have everything and just want something else, Arnold said, and the fad may die out soon. Even so, Arnold believes the search for space rocks will grow. "You have these private searches and expeditions going to Antarctica, and countries have started to tax them to get their share," he said. "It's really fascinating, but you have to remember one thing: It's just a rock." ON THE RECORD HAVANA, Cuba — Her brother smeared Vaseline and sunblock on her back and shoulders, and she turned to wave to the small crowd. And then Susie Maroney dived into the Caribbean for her second try at swimming across the choppy, shark-infested Florida Straits. The sky was cloudy but the sea was calm Sunday morning when the Australian long-distance champion, 22, jumped into the water from Havana's Malecon sea wall wearing a black suit and white cap. She is trying to become the first person ever to complete the 112- mile swim from Cuba to Florida. There have been 50 official attempts to cross the straits — none successful. Maroney herself came the closest, covering 107 miles in 381/2 hours in June. She reached U.S. territorial waters, but because of seasickness and dehydration she was pulled from the sea 12 miles short of her goal. A small group of people gathered on the Malecon to wish Maroney off Sunday morning. Women waved to her as she swam the 200 yards to a 28-by-8- foot cage that will protect her from sharks. The Canadian ship Acadian began pulling the cage out to sea. By Sunday night, eight hours into the trip, Maroney was 33 miles out to sea. Though swimming strong, the conditions had grown rougher.
