Publisher Comments:

This popular guide to cosmic debris introduces the fascinating world of meteorites, astroids, comets, and impact craters. With more than 50 new photographs and updated illustrations, new and expanded appendixes, and some fun cosmic humor, "Rocks from Space, 2nd Edition" journeys into the last frontier for close-up looks at the latest astronomical discoveries.

Book News Annotation:

Norton (astronomy, Central Oregon Community College) tells the story of meteorites and our attempts to read their history. Topics include the development of the interdisciplinary science of meteoritics, asteroids, current classifications of meteorites, and the impact of the comet Shoemaker-Levy on Jupiter in 1994. Included are numerous b&w photos of objects from space, and appendices with address of meteorite verification labs and commercial meteorite dealers, and a select list of suspected impact craters throughout the world.
