Center for Meteorite Studies Collection @ Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Building IV So you got a rock on your finger? Big deal. This season we're skipping the engagement photos and looking at the big picture: outer space. Home to the largest university-based meteorite collection in the world, the Center for Meteorite Studies at Arizona State University is a source of new and insightful findings for both academics and the general public. Here at this showcase of space debris, visitors can view acquired samples and learn about the Center's advanced conservation efforts, the origins of meteorites, and, in turn, the formation of our planetary systems.

The Center for Meteorite Studies Collection is open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the second floor of the ASU Science and Technology Building 4 (ISTB4), 781 East Terrace Road in Tempe. Admission is free. For more information, visit www.meteorites.asu.edu or call 480-965-6511. -- Katie Johnson
