Meteorite hunters search for "Rockstock"

The footage of the meteorite that crashed into the earth somewhere between Alberta and Saskatchewan has been viewed around the world.

And now, the meteorite hunters are out there -- searching for
Rockstock. CBC News has a story about the meteor hunt in its story Meteorite hunters head to Alberta-Sask. border for 'Rockstock'.

Tourism to this part of Canada should pick up between now and the end of the year. Especially with the offer of a big bounty.One serious space hunter is offering $10,000 for the first 1 kg. chunk of the meteor.
