Educational and informative, these meteorite cards are great for classroom use, homeschooling, or just a fun gift for anyone interested in meteorites.
Meteorites are the only rocks that come from outer space. We see them as shooting stars when they enter the atmosphere. The friction of their swiftly moving mass against the atmosphere causes them to burn, and it is very rare to find meteorites that have survived the fiery passage to land on earth's surface.
The meteorite on this card is composed of 90% iron, 7% nickel, and trace amounts of other metals. It was found in Odessa, Texas.
5" x 3" card with an authentic Odessa meteorite specimen attached. The card provides detailed information on meteorites on front side, with information about the specimen itself on the back.
