Meteorites are a very rare material on the planet Earth. We investigate the space originated matter.
Did you know that the total amount of all known meteorites is much less than the amount of all the precious stones on Earth taken together, like diamonds, gold, and silver, you name it.
All meteorites are very valuable scientific material! They tell us about the origin and evolution of the Solar system and beyond.

We offer a free online self-test for home use to distinguish possible meteorites from meteor-wrongs:
the Meteorite IDentification (MID) Test
