What is a meteorite? How does it help the scientists?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 30th Jan, 2014, 10:44: AM
A meteor glows and evaporates quickly as it enters earth's atmosphere. Some meteors are large and so they can reach the earth before they evaporate completely. The body that reaches the earth is called a meteorite. Meteorites help the scientists in investigating the nature of the material from which the solar system was formed.
