Ever wanted to get up close with some of the most distant regions of our solar system?

A new display at the Ulster Museum will give you that chance – by showcasing some of the most extraordinary meteorites ever to have fallen to Earth.

You will see pieces of the Moon and Mars, a chunk of the oldest volcanic rock yet discovered in the Solar System, and a slice of one of the strangest meteorites of all from a planet that once existed in the outer reaches of the solar system.

This display will run at the Ulster Museum in Belfast from 14 June until September and is free to visit.
