Getting started

This website is intended for all who are interested in outer space and in extraterrestrial geology. It was written to give an introduction to, and to create interest in, the fascinating and exciting cosmic theme – meteorites.

Research in meteorites has made a notable contribution to our understanding of the origin of the solar system. Meteors and meteorites have influenced and modified the planets of the solar system, including the earth, since the formation of the solar system more than four thousand million years ago – and will almost certainly continue to do so.
