“The dream came true.” In this way, researchers today are commenting on the discovery they had just made in rural Britain. Remains of a rare meteorite that may contain important information about the formation of our solar system.
On February 28, at approximately 10:55 pm Paris time, A.From Britain – and Northern France. It was filmed exclusively by K cameras UK Meteor Observation Network. Researchers found a way out before appealing to residents of the North Cheltenham area to find its remains.
They were first located – in the form of piles of dust and pebbles – on the side of a causeway in the village of Wincombe. Researchers then searched the surrounding countryside to select several smaller pieces.
Ever wondered what a meteorite would look like on a driveway?

If scientists are so interested in these remains, it is becauseThe one who left them was calling them . a Carbonated. A rare meteorite. There are only 51 of the 65,000 found on Earth so far. And they are among the most virgins of all, affecting the mark of our formation .
Some of its pieces appear completely black and without lines. Others are dark brown with irregular, light spots. In short, the original meteorite appears to be complex. Maybe from aCollided with many more asteroids. Sometimes tickle asteroids don’t need to go – as recently as the Hayabusa 2 missions did and – To collect some samples. Nature brings them almost to us on a plate.
Researchers will now study these remains in detail and as soon as possible. The fact that they picked them up earlyIn fact they should help in getting valuable information done by volatile elements. And its organic compounds that are protected as much as possible By the earth.
