    According to the ESA’s Near-Earth Objects Coordination Center (NEOCC), 35,264 known asteroids regularly cross the orbit of Earth and the other inner planets.

    An asteroid’s size, shape, and rotational speed are clues to its internal properties and potential resources for mining operations. However, of the more than 20,000 near-Earth asteroids currently known, only a tiny fraction have been sufficiently characterized to estimate those three properties accurately. That is essentially a resource constraint – ...

Mazliet vēstures

Pirmais zināmais meteorīts Latvijas teritorijā nokrita pirms 204 gadiem.
Otrais zināmais meteorīts Latvijas teritorijā nokrita pirms 161 gada.
Trešais zināmais meteorīts Latvijas teritorijā nokrita pirms 160 gadiem.
Pēdējais zināmais meteorīts Latvijas teritorijā nokrita pirms 134 gadiem.
Pirmais meteorītikai veltītais muzejs Latvijā dibināts pirms 9 gadiem.


Meteoriti.LV vietne tiks pakāpeniski papildināta ar plašu pamatinformāciju par meteorītiku un ar to saistitām astronomijas nozarēm. Uzzināsiet, vai "meteorīti dabā sastopami retāk par dimantiem", cik tie ir veci un kāda ir to izcelsme. Atradīsiet atbildes uz jautājumiem: Vai meteorīti ir bīstami? Kādi meteorīti atrodami Latvijā un kur tos var apskatīt? Vai Latvijā ir vērts meklēt meteorītus? Ko meteorītu izpēte pastāsta mums par Zemes un Saules sistēmas izcelšanos? Ceram, ka tas radīs vēlmi arī jums pašiem novērot Zemes kosmiskos viesus - meteorus, un, varbūt, pat kļūt par īstiem meteorītu medniekiem!
Veiksmīgu novērošanu!
