chinguetti: terrestrial age and pre-atmospheric radiusThe Chinguetti mesosiderite was found in the Adrar region of Mauretania in 1916. The finder claimed it be only a small fragment of a much larger mass, on the order of 10's of meters across. Our data indicate that, in fact, the pre-atmospheric size of the meteorite was < 1m.
