 The latest is that wood deployments are increasingly deployed internationally, but few are as yet resulting in discovery of new species which are then described, specimen deposition or major advances in our knowledge of animal diversity in the deep sea.

Private meteorite collector and Collections & Research Committee member Terry Boudreaux donated to the Field Museum two specimens of the iron meteorite Gebel Kamil that formed a 45-m-wide impact crater in the southwestern corner of Egypt (East Uweinat Desert) near the Sudanese and Lybian border.  The crater was discovered through Google Earth in 2009 on a Cretaceous sandstone surface; the impact occurred less than 5000 years ago as reported in a recent article in Geology.     The first meteorites were recovered in February.  This exciting discovery was reported by the Italian-Egyptian group in the journal Science in August 2010.  This first investigation indicates that the impactor did not suffer much during atmospheric entry and hit Earth almost fully intact. There are only about 200 confirmed impact structures on Earth.
