This issue of Meteoritics presents a new format and a new editor. It represents change and growth of the diverse interests of The Meteoritical Society, but it is based on the traditions of the Society and the solid foundation which has been established by Carleton B. Moore. His footprint (or regmaglypt) first appeared on the color-coded covers of Meteoritics in 1969-the year of Allende and Apollo. For almost two decades, the editor was Carleton Moore and the focus of the Society was seated at the Center for Meteorite Studies at Arizona State University. The tradition which grew out of the fabulous Nininger collection and the careful but good-humored attention to the science and to the journal by Carleton have helped us grow to where we are today. We have remained a small society with excellent meetings full of scientific excitement and a good journal which does not weigh a kilogram. Meteoritics is the only journal that does not threaten me with overfilling my bookshelves.
