Earliest recording of a European meteorite Featured 22 Jul 2003 Print

Earliest recording of a European meteorite

Earliest recorded European meteorite. Medieval manuscript page which is the first to record a meteorite (shown in woodcut image at top). It fell near Ensisheim, a town in Alsace which is now in France, on the morning of 7 November 1492. The "thunderstone" was interpreted as a sign of God's anger. It is thought that the meteorite weighed almost 130 kilogrammes (kg), of which a 55 kg mass remains. The meteorite was a stony chondrite type; chondrites make up about 86% of the solar system's meteorites. About 500 meteorites hit Earth each year, but most fall in the sea or remote regions & go unrecorded. Meteorites were not widely accepted as having an extraterrestrial origin until 1803


Thalidomide drug molecule Featured 22 Jul 2003 Print

Thalidomide drug molecule

Thalidomide (C13.H10.N2.O4) molecular model. The atoms are colour-coded: carbon (yellow), hydrogen (white), nitrogen (blue) and oxygen (red). This is R-thalidomide, a mirror image (enantiomer) of S- thalidomide, both of which share the same structural formula. Thalidomide was developed as a sedative drug to aid sleep in pregnant woman. It was found to cause foetal abnormalities (stunted limbs, or phocomelia), and was withdrawn in 1961. Further research discovered that only the "S" form caused deformities. A purified drug containing only the "R" enantiomer is now being used to treat leprosy and as an anti-cancer drug. See A624/155 for an image of S-thalidomide
