Italian Researches Match Up Twelve Meteorites with Near-Earth Asteroids

As per the report from Ground News, each day, small pieces of space debris, referred to as meteoroids, enter the Earth’s atmosphere and collide with its surface and ultimately becoming meteorites. Italian researchers have gathered to trace twelve meteorites with near-earth asteroids.

According to two Italian researchers, Albino Carbognani and Marco Fenucci, meteorites provide insight into their parent bodies. In their arXiv research paper, they analyzed 20 meteorites and traced most back to their parent asteroids. 25% of meteorites come from near-earth space collisions, not the Main Belt.

This groundbreaking research sheds new light on the origins and trajectories of these celestial bodies, providing valuable insights into the workings of our solar system.
