Allende is a so-called carbon chondrite, with a composition unlike anything found at Earth, on the moon or in other meteorites.
Because this meteorite is extremely old, it could contain clues on the processes which occurred before the formation of our solar system.
Carbon meteorite contain amino acids that 'sowed' life on our planet during the LHB some 3.5-4 billion years ago.
On February 8, 1969 Allende hit earth near a Mexican village in the Chihuahua region. Originally it was a meteorite weighing several tonnes, but it burst to pieces before reaching the ground. The remaining matter was scattered across an area of over 100 square kilometer.
