        Exploring the Solar System with Antarctic Meteorites | Smithsonian Science How

        Explore what meteorites reveal about our early solar system. Meet Dr. Cari Corrigan, geologist at the National Museum of Natural History. A meteorite is a piece of rock that has come from far away in space and time. Cari analyzes meteorites that have landed in Antarctica to find evidence of the history of planets. See how the structure and composition of each meteorite is interpreted using modern lab techniques. Take a journey with Cari to Mars and back to get a new perspective on a planet that once had water like Earth.
