Could 433 Eros have a Primitive Achondritic Composition?One of the goals of the NEAR (Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous) mission to 433 Eros is to determine if it has a meteoritic analog. We are currently investigating if primitive achondrites have bulk compositions and spectral properties similar to Eros. Additional information is contained in the original extended abstract.
