I thinked about something interesting.
Anyone make research on the effects of the vacuum on the condition of the
specimen ?
Becouse we have rock in space (vacuum), then in only seconds it reach dense
atmosphere with high air presure. Most meteorites dont have gas vesicles
inside so maybe this will not make a big difference to the rock material (or
iron). But what about meteorites like D'Orbigny or Baszk?wka where material
is highly porous ? Maybe this dramatic change of presure from near 0 to
atmospheric level can do any cracks or help in fragmentation ?
