But how does a Lunar meteorite end up here on Earth?
Well, the answer may surprise you! Look up at the Moon and you will see that it is covered in craters, this is because there is no tectonic plate movement unlike here on Earth. These craters were caused after space debris crashed into the Moon over the course of its long life. When a sizeable object impacts the Moon, debris is flung into space. Eventually, some of this debris is caught by the Earth's gravitational pull and lands here on Earth. When this lunar rock tumbles to Earth, it becomes known as a meteorite. Hunters and collectors will go in search of said meteorites, but one must be very fortunate to find a lunar meteorite as they comprise of less than 1% of all meteorites found here on Earth! Fascinating, isn't it?
