New devices to find more Micrometeorites.

The deep sea sediments I recovered at -1500m do contain very nice micrometeorites. But not many. So it is important to use the right equipment in order to be effective when looking for MM.

Here are some new devices I have made.

An extremely powerful (and dangerous) magnet is kept only a few millimeters above the sediments to select only magnetic particles.

I also made some tools to help me to check all magnetic particle with the microscope.

Here are the results:

Pretender one

Pretender two

According to their shape and texture, one of these is a nice micrometeorite from the space. The other one is only a pretender, probably an impostor. Would you spot them? You can answer below. Your knowledge in this matter (if any) is welcome.

By the way, I would like to recommend a nice and instructive video about what NOT to do when discarding an imposter. Enjoy.
