Students in Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology were treated to an out-of-this-world experience when examining a suite of meteorite thin sections on loan from NASA. The meteorites were found by scientists in Antarctica as part of The Antarctic Search for Meteorites (ANSMET) program and include samples from an undifferentiated asteroid, the asteroid 4-Vesta, and Mars among others.
