Help reveal the composition of the Earth’s core.
A number of Polish geologists managed to dig the largest meteorite ever found in Western Europe. They hope their findings could help reveal the composition of the Earth’s core.
“We know that the Earth’s core consists of iron, but we can not investigate. Now we have guests from outer space that has the same structure and we could easily learn it,” said Professor Andrzej Muszynski in Poznan, western Poland, Wednesday (10/31) when he announced his findings to the public, “These findings could broaden our insights about the origin of the universe,” said geologist that.
Two meteor hunters find conical stone, weighing 300 pounds, and the diameter of 2 meters late last month.Meteors are mostly made up of iron that is embedded in the ground two feet in Yosemite National Meteor Morasko, in the north of Poznan.
They use electronic means to detect electromagnetic anomalies on the surface of the soil.
“Until now, this was the finding of the largest in western Europe,” said Professor Wojciech Stankowski, one of the researchers also examined the space rocks.
Meanwhile other geologists of Adam Mickiewicz in Poznan Universitu, who also studied meteor, estimated meteor hits the Earth about 5000 years ago. Meteor is composed mostly of iron and nickel fraction again.
Morasko National Meteor Garden is located in the north of Poznan and has seven craters. Largest crater has a diameter of 100 meters and a depth of 11 meters. Scientists believe the site was formed 5000 years ago by a meteor that hit Earth.
