Meteorite|||It is a time capsule from space through billions of years.
We investigate the origin of the solar system by instrumental analyses of meteorites,
such as secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) and scanning electron microscopy.
Also, lunar meteorites and martian meteorites are important source of information on these satellites/planets.
Please come and see us if you are interested in meteorites.
