Meteorite: the stones from outer space that made our world

Meteorite tells the story of the stones from outer space that are scattered across our planet. Far older than anything else on Earth, these rocky fragments offer clues not just to the earliest origins of everything, but also to humanity's survival into the future. The book includes examples, such as the extraterrestrial iron found in Tutankhamun's tomb and early witnessed accounts of meteorite falls, such as one in Yorkshire in 1795.
