Center for Meteorite Studies Collection

So you got a rock on your finger? Big deal. This season we're skipping the engagement photos and looking at the big picture: outer space. Home to the largest university-based meteorite collection in the world, the Center for Meteorite Studies at Arizona State University is a source of new and insightful findings for both academics and the general public. Here at this showcase of space debris, visitors can view acquired samples and learn about the Center's advanced conservation efforts, the origins of meteorites, and, in turn, the formation of our planetary systems.
