“Invader” From Space Rocks Up In The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds found itself in the news when an “invader” from outer-space landed in our midst.

For the first time in 30 years, a meteorite has been recovered in the UK after landing in the driveway of a house in Winchcombe.

The meteorite is astonishingly rare and will give scientists a glimpse into what the solar system looked like as it was forming some 4.6 billion years ago.

Fragments of this meteorite have now been recovered and taken to the Natural History Museum to be analysed and studied.

This is the first time since 1991 that a piece of space rock has landed and been recovered in the UK and marks an incredibly rare and exciting moment.
