Pop into the Canadian Museum of Nature and check out a collection of 31 meteorites on display in the Vale Earth Gallery.

The collection of meteorites — extra-terrestrial chunks of rock and metal that fall to Earth — include a rare pallasite meteorite, which has olivine crystals embedded in an alloy of iron and nickel. Olivine is a translucent mineral that is found in the Earth’s mantle, as well as on Mars and the Moon. The pallasite on exhibit was found in 1951 in Argentina, by a farmer digging in the ground. While you’re at the museum, check out the Buzzard Coulee meteorite that fell in Saskatchewan in 2008.
