From Mercury to Earth? A meteorite like no other

November 22, 2013 - September 01, 2014

For generations humanity has gazed into the heavens, to the stars and other worlds of our universe. As a species, we have traveled to the moon, and we have recovered pieces of Mars. Now, for the first time in human history, a fragment of the planet Mercury has been identified, delivered to Earth after an impact on Mercury’s surface blasted the stone into space.

 

Be among the first to view this incredible piece of history!

 

On view for a limited engagement is the largest fragment of NWA 7325, never before displayed. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity begins November 22 and extends until September 01, 2014--only at Yale’s Peabody Museum of Natural History.
