Size 250 x 250 mm | 32 pages | hardbinding
Can you distinguish an ordinary rock from a meteorite – a rock of cosmic origin? If the answer is no, it doesn’t matter: on the subject of meteorites, there is nothing this book can’t tell you.
You will learn how they are formed, what happens when they fly through space, and about the dizzying speeds they reach before they land on Earth. Read about famous meteorite falls – some amusing, some agents of great damage. Last but not least, learn to identify a meteorite. If you think all meteorites are the same, think again. A single meteorite fragment can tell us about the age of our planet and the composition of others. So come and join us on our great meteorite adventure! You won’t regret it, that’s for sure.
