Caption

Meteorite. Polarised light micrograph of a section through a chondrule from a stony meteorite (chondrite). Meteorites are asteroids, chunks of space rock, which reach the Earth's surface. Chondrites constitute about 85% of all meteorites. They are characterised by the presence of chondrules, small spheres of silicate minerals that are usually only a few millimetres across. The study of meteorites provides information on the history of the solar system. This is part of the Allende meteorite that fell in Mexico in 1969. Magnification: x25 at 35mm size.
