The Center for Meteorite Studies (est. 1961) is one of Arizona State University’s first-established research institutes. Our mission is to create and share new knowledge in the field of meteoritics and allied disciplines. We accomplish this through:
1. Cutting-edge research on understanding the origin of our solar system and planets, including the pathways to forming habitable worlds.
2. Curation and distribution of one of the finest meteorite collections in the world.
3. Broad dissemination of the latest scientific results and education at local, national and global scales.
