Martin Altmann pondered:

“Besides... I have some ideas (sorry, happens from time
to time):

Could it be also a reason for Antarctic meteorites never
can't be traded, that according the Antarctic treaties,
none of the governments involved in Antarctic hunts
can't get ownership in these meteorites?”

For a discussion of the politics of doing science in Antarctic, there
is a delightful article. It is:

Naylor, S., M. Siegert, K. Dean and s. Turchetti, 2008, Science,
geopolitics and the governance of Antarctica. Nature Geoscience.
vol. 1, no. 3, pp. 143 – 145. doi:10.1038/ngeo138
