Stone meteorites

Stone meteorites are very diverse. Most are ordinary chondrites from asteroids, some are i.e. from Mars or The Moon, others are carbonaceous and contain the most primitive and origin chondrules from the protoplanetary disc – and interstellar grains – remnants of a prior star that lived out its life and exploded before the formation of our Sun. It is possible that this explosion was the trigger for the formation of our solar system.

Stenmeteoritter er meget forskellige. De fleste er ordinære kondritter fra asteroider, andre typer er fx fra Mars eller Månen. Nogle kaldes kulkondritter, de er sjældne og indeholder de allerførste faste stoffer, der kondenserede i den protoplanetariske skive rundt om den nydannede stjerne Solen. De indeholder også interstellare partikler (fx diamanter) fra stjerner der eksisterede før Solen blev født.

THE CRUST OF OTHER WORLDS

The largest group of meteorites is the stones, and they once formed part of the outer crust of a planet or asteroid. Freshly fallen stones will exhibit a black fusion crust, created as the surface literally burned during flight, and the vast majority of stones contain enough iron for them to easily adhere to a powerful magnet.
