MATERIALS WITH A LONG JOURNEY.

Our moon has been struck by asteroids which occasionally ejects surface material into space.

Some of that material finds its way to earth, landing as a lunar meteorite.

Meteorites from Mars reach the earth through the same process.

A RARE ROCK

LUNAR & MARTIAN METEORITES

Lunar meteorites are identified by comparing them with moon rocks brought back by the Apollo missions.

Martian meteorites are identified by comparing them with data sent by Mars Rover missions.

Meteorites are named after the area where they are found.
