Meteorites have long been seen as portents of fate and messages from the gods. But really, meteorites tell the story of our solar system. In Meteorite, geologist Tim Gregory shows that beneath the charred crusts of these celestial stones lies a staggering diversity of rock types. Their unique constituents, vibrant colors, and pungent smells contain thrilling tales of interstellar clouds, condensing stardust, and the fiery collisions of worlds. Gregory explores meteorites to uncover new insights into what our solar system was like before our sun became a star, into the forging of our planet, and the emergence of life. Humans have long looked to the skies for answers, Meteorite reveals how science is finally arriving at them.
