Meteorites are rocks that have landed on our planet from space.
Some of them have tiny particles inside, only one thousandth of a millimetre across, that can tell us about how the solar system formed approximately 4.6 billion years ago.
Join scientist Enrica Bonato and find out how meteorites are studied here at the Museum and what it can tell us about the very start of the solar system.
