Meteorites are fragmental breccias consistent with the high abundance of impact craters on asteroids and old formation ages of meteorites indicate that they formed on small bodies that cooled within a few million years. Compositional links are provided by spectral reflectivities that match those of asteroids, and densities that indicate the presence of appreciable metal. LL-chondrite samples were returned to Earth from Asteroid 25143 Itokawa; other spacecraft missions will return more samples during the next decade.
