Formation of Mesosiderites: Fragmentation and Reaccretion of a Large Differentiated AsteroidWe propose that these stony-iron meteorites formed when a 50-150 km diameter projectile disrupted a 200-400 km diameter asteroid with a molten core. Several mineralogical features of mesosiderites need reinterpreting if our model is correct. Additional information is contained in the original extended abstract.
