CM2 - Carbonaceous Chondrite

Perhaps one of the most important meteorite falls in the last 50 years, arguably the most scientifically significant, because we now have better analytic tools at our disposal to eke out the complex organic molecules encapsulated in this remarkable extraterrestrial emissary.
