My second post for the day also comes from "Australasian Science" magazine, Vol 31 No 7. Sep/Oct 2010.
I found an interesting article about the establishment of a Desert Fireball photographic network in Western Australia, which I had never known existed. The article is by Alex Bevon, Phillip Bland and Pavel Spurny. The network consists of four satellite monitored cameras on the Nullarbor Plain to photograph, triangulate the path of, and then try and physically recover bits of meteorites on the ground. Observations so far have resulted in the recovery of on site meteorites on the ground.
The thought came to mind that this would make an excellent detection system for tracking UFOs and predicting where they would land.
