The Qatar 002 meteorite was found by Fabien Kuntz and Marie Gerbet at the end of their trip in Qatar. After a week to drive on rocky or sandy landscapes, they hardly found an access in the desert to search for meteorites. Many fences are built along the main roads to avoid that camels flee from their places. Qatar 002 was discovered near a luxury tent (with satellite TV, air conditioning and high value 4WD trucks). Fabien et Marie didn’t stayt long there and took the road rapidly. Qatar is definitely not the best place for meteorite hunting…
