Information Card Included


   Tektites are most prevalent near impact craters of meteorites. There are more than 150 known meteorite craters worldwide, with more being discovered each year. The meteorites that caused these craters weighed from 100 to thousands of tons, and impacted the Earth at an estimated speed of 47,000 miles per hour. The resulting explosions, equivalent to many nuclear bombs, ejected molten matter into outer space at suprersonic speeds. As they cooled, these molten rocks (mostly glassy quartz) became aerodynamically shaped into teardrops, flattened spears and dumbbells with pits and striations. Gravity then pulled them back to Earth.
   Tektites are made of Earth material, but were actually formed in space!
