Chondrites

September 25th, 2013 by adminMS

The trip of the Japanese spacecraft Hayabusa could not have been more rough, dotted with errors and uncertainties, but eventually returned and achieved its goal of bringing samples obtained on the asteroid Itokawa to Earth. That it had managed to bring some extraterrestrial genuinamente it was revealed shortly after the descent of the capsule in Australia in June of last year, but the results of the exhaustive analysis of the samples are now known. The main conclusion of the scientists is that particles of rock of the Itokawa of type S are identical to the majority of meteorites called Chondrites that fall on the ground, or other words that Chondrites are chunks of rocky asteroids type S. Chondrites are the most primitive solar system objects, so these asteroids should be authentic records of the history of the early days of the Sun and the planets. Source of the news:: the first samples brought from an asteroid are as meteorites
