About the Author

O. Richard Norton fell in love with meteorites while studying astronomy at UCLA with renowned meteoriticist Frederick C. Leonard. As director of the Fleischmann Planetarium at the Univeristy of Nevada at Reno and the Flandrau Planetarium at the University of Arizona at Tucson, he taught astronomy and shared his enthusiasm for meteorites, geology, and photography in public lectures and community education classes. He traveled to Cape Canaveral to film the Apollo launches, designed a fish-eye motion picture system that flew on the space shuttle Challenger, and led field trips to photograph total solar eclipses and comets around the world. His previous books about meteorites are "Rocks from Space", "The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Meteorites", and "Field Guide to Meteors and Meteorites". He was a fellow of the Meteorological Society and a contributing editor of Meteorite magazine. He died in 2009 before he completed work on this book.
