During the 4.56-G.y. history of the solar system, every meteorite experienced at least one exposure to cosmic rays as a meter-sized meteoroid. The cosmic-ray exposure (CRE) age of a meteorite measures the integral time of exposure to galactic cosmic rays (GCRs). A fraction of meteoritic material was also irradiated by cosmic rays before ejection from… CONTINUE READING
