Description

Meteorites from the Moon

Tony Kearsley

Meteorites from the Moon reveal a violent history stretching back billions of years. Even very small samples may contain tiny fragments of a wide range of lunar and other rock types. These show signs of being smashed, mixed and melted together by catastrophic asteroid impacts, some big enough to send fragments into space, eventually reaching the earth's surface as meteorites.

Tony Kearsley is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and former Microanalyst at the Natural History Museum in London.
