"Treasures from the universe, godsends from heaven, and having once sealed the the dinosaurs fate: they are meteorites! Meteorites brought important elements to our planet, perhaps even to life itself. For thousands of years, human beings ascribed a supernatural power to them; they symbolized heavenly power for hundreds of years as God s ambassadors. A giant impact contributed to the extinction of the dinosaurs and could even today end life as we know it at any given moment. In three comprehensive special exhibitions, the Munich Show, Europe s leading trade fair for minerals, fossils, and precious stones, highlights this exciting topic from quite different perspectives. In this accompanying theme book, cultural and geological scientists as well as meteorite hunters and palaeontologists bring these perspectives together in an exceptional way. Discover the meteorites' journey through time and space far beyond their impact on Earth."
