About this book

Every rock has a story tell, and none more so than those which have fallen from the sky: meteorites. Originating in the Asteroid Belt between Mars and Jupiter, these rocky fragments offer clues not just to the earliest origins of the Solar System but also to Earth's very survival into the future.

Sky at Night presenter, Dr Tim Gregory takes us on a journey through the very earliest days of our Solar System to the spectacular meteorite falls that produced 'fiery rain' in 1792, to the pre-solar grains (literally stardust) that were blown in from other solar systems and are the oldest solid objects ever discovered on earth.

Meteorites reveal a story much bigger than ourselves or our planet. As Tim says, 'it is an epic beyond compare'.

Media reviews

"Drawing on his deep technical education and boundless curiosity, Tim Gregory brings a childlike wonder of discovery to everything he sees. He shows an uncanny ability to swiftly understand, to clearly explain, and to be joyful in the process. His scientific delight is contagious"
– Chris Hadfield

"Meticulously researched and eminently readable [...] [Gregory] writes with aplomb, his sentences backed by hard evidence and served with clarity, erudition and occasionally humour [...] Meteorite is a treasure for those who enjoy the stepwise narrative of scientific discovery [...] magnificent"
Wall Street Journal

"A captivating blend of painstaking detective work and dramatic cosmic events. The impact that rocks from space have had on our culture, and on our knowledge of where we come from – and where they come from – may surprise you. As will their impact on the planet of course, should you be lucky enough to see a "fall""
– Jon Butterworth

"A treasure-trove of knowledge [...] full of wonder at the cosmos"
Daily Telegraph
