Lavishly illustrated with over 120 photos, maps, documents and diagrams, most of them derived from original sources and that have never before been published. This is a publication that no meteorite enthusiast will want to miss.

Their surprising results turn the common impact scenarios for the Henbury bolide upside down ...
