CI Asteroid Simulant

PRODUCT TYPE: Interesting Materials

This material has been engineered to be chemically and mechanically similar to the surface material of CI chondrite asteroids based on the Orgueil asteroid.

Orgueil is a carbonaceous chondrite meteorite that fell in southwestern France in 1864. It is one of five known meteorites belonging to the CI chondrite group, of which it is the largest at 14 kilograms (31 lb). This group is remarkable for having a composition that is essentially identical to that of the sun, excluding gaseous elements like hydrogen and helium. Because of its extraordinarily primitive composition and relatively large mass, Orgueil is one of the most-studied meteorites.

To be clear, this material is not from the Asteroid, but it is based on the the composition of Orgueil as determined through remote analysis.
