Meteorite is 1st to show scars from pebble-shooting asteroid

A meteorite on Earth holds new evidence that asteroids do indeed mysteriously spit out pebbles, a new study finds.

In 2019, NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft discovered a strange new phenomenon when the near-Earth asteroid it was exploring, Bennu, appeared to shoot swarms of marble-sized rocks into space. Scientists still don’t understand why exactly this activity happens, but a chance analysis of a meteorite may shed light on the puzzling behavior.
