Meteorite from birth of solar system to go on display
The Natural History Museum, London, will be displaying a piece of the
Ivuna meteorite, which dates back some 4.6bn years to before the Earth
was formed An extremely rare meteorite that has the same make-up as the
primordial solar system goes on public display for the first time on
Friday at the Natural History Museum in London.
The Ivuna meteorite landed in Tanzania in 1938 and has since been broken
up into samples, the rest of which remain in the hands of private
collectors. The Natural History Museum bought the largest lump in 2008
from a private enthusiast in the US.
