Meteorites in China

Of the 57041 named meteorites that have been recovered on Earth, only 239 have been recovered from China. This is somewhat of an oddity as China has the 4th largest surface area of a country with about 9.6 million square km, after Russia (143 meteorites), Canada (64 meteorites) and the US (1789 meteorites) and we should expect, along with Canada and Russia, to have yielded many more samples as a function of their large surface size. 848 more words
