A comparison of the laboratory reflectance spectra of meteorites with observations of asteroids revealed that the latter are much 'redder', with the spectral difference explained by 'space weathering', though the actual processes and timescales involved have remained controversial. A recent study of young asteroid families concluded that they suffered only(More)

Isotopic and chemical compositions of meteorites, coupled with dynamical simulations, suggest that the main belt of asteroids between Mars and Jupiter contains objects formed in situ as well as a population of interlopers. These interlopers are predicted to include the building blocks of the terrestrial planets as well as objects that formed beyond Neptune(More)
