Meteorites are rocks from space that have fallen to the Earth's surface. Once considered bad omens, they are now recognised as giving us a unique insight into the nature of material that was present at the formation of the solar system. In Meteorites, leading experts from the British Natural History Museum provide a compelling introduction to these mysterious objects. Drawing on the latest information from key meteorite falls, it explains what meteorites are, where they come from and what they can tell us about our solar system and the planets, moons, asteroids and comets it contains, including Earth. It is written in an easy-to-follow, jargon-free style, making it accessible to all, and is illustrated throughout with a mix of photographic, diagrams and maps.
