¿What is meteorite?
A meteorite is a rock that originates in outer space before reaching the ground. Whilst this rock is still in space it is called a meteoroid. When it enters the Earth’s atmosphere it becomes a meteor. The fireball it forms as a meteor is colloquially referred to as a shooting star. Meteorites give us detailed information about the composition, history and appearance of other celestial bodies. This is crucial to understand the origin of the Earth, Solar System and entire universe. Meteorites also give us information about how physical and chemical reactions happen in space, some of which are necessary for the development of life.
Currently there are several ways to classify of the meteorites, one of them is to classify them by undifferentiated and differentiated meteorites. And another way is to divide them by the three main groups. This form of clasification is a more visually intuitive and based on the appearance. There are 3 types of meteorites according to this classification: stony, iron and stony-iron meteorites.
