Meteorites provide us with laboratory samples from distant bodies including asteroids, comets, the moon, Mars and even ancient stars. Witnesses to the extraordinary event when one is seen to fall from the sky, or anyone finding a sample on the ground, also have a story to tell. It’s a potent mix for science communication, not just by scientists but to scientists.
