On meteorites, impactites and tectites – falling stars

Meteorites are the oldest matter available to mankind.

Meteorites

Meteorites consist of rock matter that has fallen down to earth from outer space.  Most meteorites came from the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter and are approximately 4500.000.000 years old, which makes them the oldest matter available to mankind. Meteorites are generally quite rare.
Most meteorites consist of a type of rock called „chondrite“. These strange rocks do not exist on earth. They originated in the early time of the solar system and have only changed minimally since then.
The type of matter of iron meteorites originated only some time later in larger asteroids of chondrite origin, which melted and formed an iron core with a silicate crust. It is these silicate crusts which supply eucrites and diogenites – rock matter similar to terrestrial volcanis rocks. In between the iron core and the silicate crusts the mixed matter of the iron meteorites originated.
A particularly rare type of meteorites are the ones which were blasted off the surface of the moon and of Mars due to asteroid impacts. These are a lot younger than the ones from the asteroid belt and most similar to terrestrial rock.

Impactites and tectites

Impactites are rocks and glass objects which were created due to the impact of large meteorites and asteroids on earth. When such an impact happens, the whole kinetic energy of the impactor – hitting earth with approximately 10.000 km per hour – is reduced to zero within the fraction of a second and is transformed into thermal energy and a massive shock wave. A huge explosion of the strength of several atomic bombs follows, depending on the size of the impactor. During this explosion the asteroid as well as a vast amount of underlying matter vaporize immediately and all matter close to „ground zero“ melts to glass or gets shattered and catapulted thousands of meters into the atmosphere, some of it even flying on ballistic curves into outer space. It is such pieces of glass forming the bizarre tectites, which technically are no meteorites.
Asteroid impacts are capable of ending geological ages and of causing woldwide climatic changes, compared to which the current change of climate is minuscule. Even volcanic eruptions do not generate nearly as much energy.
The classification of meteorites works with a complicated nomenclature and can be found in the annual issue of the Meteoritical Bulletin.
You can even purchase a piece of meteorite for yourself – nothing is more fascinating than holding a piece of matter from outer space in your own hands, maybe even from Mars or from the moon!
Kasper von Wuthenau, degreed geologist, supplied us with meteorites for the production of our remedies and offers a wide range of meteorites. For more information you can contact us of Mr. von Wuthenau himself (geofactum@hotmail.com).
If you would like to find out more about meteorites you may want to go and visit the mineralogical museum of the Hamburg University in Grindelallee. It is free of charge!

Watch the (night)sky!

Falling stars are merely tiny parts of matter of the size of a grain of sand dying down in the earth´s atmosphere. If you are very, very lucky you may one day see a bright ball of fire racing through the sky, accompanied by the sound of thunder. Go and find the place where it hits the earth and you may also find a meteorite there…
