Publisher Comments:

A fascinating and authoritative introduction to the science of meteorites, written by leading experts in the field.

Meteorites are rocks from space that have fallen to the Earth's surface. Once considered bad omens, they are now recognized for giving us a unique insight into the nature of the material that was present when our solar system formed.

In Meteorites, experts from the Natural History Museum in London, England, provide a compelling and up-to-date introduction to these otherworldly objects.

This fully illustrated guide reveals:

What meteorites areWhere meteorites come fromWhat they tell us about our solar systemThe latest information on key meteorite falls.

In clear, jargon-free language, the authors explain how meteorites provide us with invaluable information about planets beyond Earth — both within our solar system and around other stars.

With its combination of color photographs, diagrams and maps, Meteorites is the ultimate reference to these mysterious objects from space.
