What are meteorites?

12 Sep 2010

At http://geology.com/meteorites/ there is a short piece that attempts to answer this question - by a science writer, photographer, and meteorite hunter who has contributed to documentaries made by PBS, National Geographic, the History Channel and the Travel Channel as well as Readers Digest, Rock and Gem, Sky and Telescope, Geotimes etc. A series of monthly postings on meteorites is planned - to examine the issue as widely as possible, from what they are or what they aren't, to chondrites, micro diamonds, meteors as opposed to meteorites, and so forth.
