Collection: Martian Meteorites

Just like our moon, Planet Mars also encounters Meteoroid impacts quite often. With enough velocity, chunks of Mars can eject and escape it’s own gravity, sending them on a journey through interplanetary space. If the sun or Earth’s atmosphere doesn’t burn them up and they survive their violent decent to Earth, they have the chance of being discovered, studied and classified by leading scientists in the field of Meteoritics!

The Interstellar Collection offers a wide array of genuine, scientifically-classified Martian meteorites. 

How do scientists know for sure it's from Mars?  Thanks to NASA's Viking spacecraft that landed on Mars in 1976, scientists studying meteorites have revealed small amounts of gas/rare isotopes trapped within these specific types of meteorites and concluded the composition found within is the same to that of the atmosphere on Planet Mars.
