Divided they fall
The meteorites Kunashak, Kyushu and Suizhou fell in three different countries—Russia, Japan and China—over a span of 100 years. Nevertheless, they are virtually identical in composition, so they may have originally belonged to the same parent asteroid. Billions of years ago, these fragments broke off after the parent body collided with another asteroid.
