Abstract:

"A family goes on an expedition to the Antarctic with their 7-year-old son. They're the only family in the Antarctic and Matty has no one to play with. He only has his adventurous nature to entertain him. His parents spend all day out in the field searching for signs of ancient meteorites and they leave Matty at home and tell him not to wander far. One day, Matty wanders a little too far and ends up at some Transantarctic Mountains. While he's playing there, he comes across this strange black rock. He's never seen anything like it before, so he puts it in his pocket to play with later. Later that night Matty's parents discover the rock in Matty's jacket pocket and the very next day, Matty leads them to the mountains where they discover many more meteorites. His parents are ecstatic with the discovery and immediately let NASA know and before Matty knew it, they had families from all over the world flying to Antarctica with their kids to explore."--
