The meteorite that landed in the English countryside last year was the cleanest ever seen

A meteorite that lit up the sky over an English countryside last year is almost as intact as samples collected by space probes and contains the “right” kind of hydrogen to explain water on Earth, scientists say.

A great furore broke out when a a fireball rattled across the evening sky over SW England on 28th February 2021. Dozens meteor cameras and doorbell webcams picked up the bright streak, and a 1-pound (0.5-kilogram) fragment of the space rock was immediately found in the driveway of a house in the village of Winchcombe, after which the meteorite was later named.
