About

Apollo 15 Astronaut Al Worden and Steve Arnold, host of the TV series Meteorite Men are heading to the Sahara to hunt for Moon (Lunar) meteorites, rocks blasted off the surface of the Moon by asteroid impacts which fell to Earth.  

And YOU can come too!

This is an opportunity of a lifetime!

If you join this 9 day/8 night expedition, you will get to hunt side by side with one of only 24 men who have ever gone to the Moon.

Al is one of the most brilliant, energetic, funny and engaging men you will ever meet, and he is about to become your personal friend and meteorite hunting buddy!

NOTE:  There is nothing resembling an "expedition category" so we will be taking video and photos all along the way so that is how we decided to place it here in this category! 

You will stay at 4 star hotels to and from the Strewnfield and at the site in high walled tents that sleep two, with carpets and beds, there will be latrines and showers, even a dining tent with a cook. 

We have 5 spots available on this mission's crew manifest. Once these seats are filled, we will be "clear for lift off."

We have a real shot at finding Moon rocks. We will be traveling to an area where several Moon Meteorite pieces have been discovered in a several square mile area over the past several weeks. There should be more pieces waiting to be found.

And the best part: you get to keep whatever you find!

If you can't go with us, take a look at some of the other cool rewards we have and please share this with others that might like this project.

Risks and challenges

Either we fund the trip or not. If we do, it's on. The plans are made and I am going. Short of a horrible disaster, it will go on. And even then we could reschedule.

    EARLYBIRD 9 Day Expedition w/Al Worden

    Numbered Limited Edition Autographed by Al Worden Moon Rock specimen PLUS

    9 Day/8 night Expedition

    Be one of the five that makes this trip a reality!
    You get to join Apollo 15 Astronaut Al Worden and Steve Arnold, host of Meteorite Men TV series, on a Saharan expedition to a known Moon Meteorite Strewnfield to hunt for Moon Rock.

    You will need to get your own round trip airfare to Dakhla, Western Sahara, then all other expenses will be covered. The expedition starts at the airport in Dakhla on November 22 and ends at the airport in Dahkhla on November 30. The expedition includes a 4 star hotel stay the first night and last night in Dakhla and includes 6 nights camping in high walled tents in the Strewnfield. The carpeted tents sleep 2 people each in single beds (you may pay extra for your own private tent). There will be a dining tent, latrines, showers, a cook. There will be a campfire under the stars each night, and three nights of a New Moon for you astronomers who love dark skies!

    You will get to hunt as little or as much as you desire. And the best part, you get to keep any Moon Meteorites that you find!

    You can stay for less than 8 nights and if you want to stay longer, either in the desert, or with an escorted tour through Morocco you can pay extra to do that as well.

    Warning: airfare from Casablanca to Dakhla is not very expensive (<$400 round trip) but some travel booking engines will try to add up to $6,000 for that last leg. If you need our Tour Guide company to arrange the domestic flights for you to save money, we can do that for you.). Just be sure to get price quotes for both a round trip fare to Casablance AND another quote to Dakhal to compare!
