The meteorites we find on our planet do not all share the same origin story and that you notice the great difference in their composition and structure. Some of them have remained unchanged without any differentiation as asteroids since the creation of our solar system, consisting of the primary materials that gave birth to the sun and the planets before 4,567 billion years. Others have suffered variations due to heating or due to melting and redefine their structure.
The asteroids are the remains of all the pieces of small planetesimals that failed to incorporate any planet in the process of its creation. Of these mainly come from meteorites that we have discovered in our planet and which pieces are detached after the asteroid collision between them and escaped from the trajectory of the main bodys.
