Fragments of a meteorite recovered in the English village of Winchcombe in February 2021.

The meteorite that landed in an English village last year is the most pristine ever seen

A meteorite that lit up the sky above an English village last year is almost as pristine as samples collected by space probes and contains the ‘right’ kind of hydrogen to explain water on Earth, according to the scientists.

Huge fury erupted when a fireball shook the evening sky over south west England on February 28, 2021. Dozens of meteor doorbell cameras and webcams spotted the light sequence, and a 1 pound (0.5 kilogram) fragment of the space rock was soon found in the driveway of a house in the village of Winchcombe, after which the meteorite was named later.
