More About Meteorites by Bruce L. Stinchcomb
 
 
 
Overview
Over 500 color images and engaging text provide insight into these interesting collectibles from "out of this world." Meteorites link back to the early stages of the Milky Way galaxy and are the oldest items one can touch, some dating back to before the creation of our solar system. Meteorites are also among the most primitive forms of matter you can closely observe and handle. Some of these ambassadors from the void were created in stars that no longer exist. Others provide the curious researcher with original material from the earliest days of our own solar system. These rocks tell tales to those who know how to read them of nebulas, novas, supernovas, red giants, and impacting celestial bodies. Readers can explore metallic, stony-iron, and stony meteorites, meteorite falls, Northwest African meteorites, and rare meteorites.
