Formation of Chondritic Meteorites and the Solar System, by Wal Thornhill (1988)

Abstract: Chondritic meteorites are an enigma to scientists – they have so many apparently inexplicable features. Adopting Eric Crew’s core expulsion theory, Wal Thornhill is able to account for all their peculiar properties and to explain their formation. This revolutionary thesis has far-reaching implications for the study of the history of the solar system. (His talk to the AGM of the Society in Spring 1988 was based on this paper).
