Scientists Using Airship in Search For Meteorites Scattered Over The Gold Country

     SACRAMENTO (AP/CBS) — A group of scientists took to the skies in a slow-moving airship Thursday in search of meteorites that rained over California’s gold country last month.

It’s the latest hunt for extraterrestrial fragments from the April 22 explosion that was witnessed over a swath of Northern California and Nevada.

Treasure hunters have swarmed the Sierra foothills over the past two weeks, snatching up pieces of meteorites. Most of the recovered space rocks have been tiny, with the largest weighing in at 19 grams, or the weight of one AA battery.

Researchers from NASA and the nonprofit SETI Institute in Mountain View were on the lookout for larger fragments. . . .
