Meteorite Impacts

Countless impacts continue to shape Earth, other planets, and moons in our dynamic solar system. They can make craters of many sizes, which often provide clues to how the meteorites formed. These resources cover a range of topics, including an introduction to gravity and the evidence for life on Mars.
