Cambridge Astronomical Society Speaker Evening - Meteorites

Cambridge Astronomical Society Speaker Evening - Meteorites

Friday 17th December 2021 from 20:00pm to 21:00pm

Online event by Cambridge Astronomical Association

It has been known since the 1970s that some meteorites can have a planetary origin ascribed to them: lunars, Martians and HEDs from the asteroid Vesta were the first to be confidently identified. Since then, new technologies and clever use have allowed us to assign planets of origin to an ever-increasing list. This presentation discusses the background of this work.

David and Linda Bryant have run the UK’s only full-time meteorite dealership for over twenty years. Their website ‘Spacerocks UK’ was one of the first online sources of meteorites in the country. David has written two books around the subject and over 100 published articles, and he has made numerous TV and radio broadcasts. David still plays the guitar and is the lead vocalist in a famous rock and blues band!
