Hall of Meteorites for Educators Hero Image

This hall uses specimens to investigate the origins of meteorites, their journey through space and fall to Earth, and the wealth of information they contain. It is laid out in a circle, with an overview in the Center and three areas on an outer ring: "Origins of the Solar System" (primitive, or pre-planetary meteorites), "Building Planets" (material from planetary bodies), and "Meteorite Impacts" (dynamics of the solar system).
