Meteorites are important to scientists on earth because they represent some of the original, diverse materials that formed planets billions of years ago.

With the help of meteorites, scientists can learn about early conditions and processes in our solar system.

Also, meteorites may resemble earth rocks. They usually have a burned exterior with a shiny appearance. This fusion crust forms as the meteorite’s outer surface melt while passing through the atmosphere.

As per Nasa, most meteorites on earth come from shattered asteroids.

But some also come from Mars or the Moon. With the help of photographic observations of meteorites, scientists calculate orbits and project their paths back to the asteroid belt.
