Product description

Review

"This new book from the Natural History Museum does a great job of introducing the science of meteoritics...this is accompanied by a wonderful selection of vivid imagery...the authors do well to cover so much ground in such a thin volume and manage to skilfully capture the fascination that the subject inspires." BBC Sky at Night magazine "Meteorites provides a jargon-free introduction to these Rosetta stones of the Solar System...the book has a really modern feel to it; it is well illustrated with clear diagrams and plentiful crisp photographs of real meteorites that bring to life what is being said in the text...this book makes an excellent introductory text for someone who has no prior knowledge of meteorites and is looking for a basic grounding in the subject." Astronomy Now
