Published by the Natural History Museum (NEW COPY)

Meteorites are rocks from space that have fallen to the Earth's surface.

In 'Meteorites', leading experts from the Natural History Museum, London provide a compelling and up-to-date introduction to these mysterious objects. 


Drawing on the latest information from key meteorite falls, this work explains what meteorites are, where they come from and what they can tells us about our solar system and the planets, moons, asteroids and comets it contains, including the Earth.

Illustrated throughout with a mix of photographs, diagrams and maps.
