The Center for Meteorite Studies was originally entitled the Nininger Meteorite Laboratory and was established when ASU bought the Nininger Collection in 1959, which included 1,220 samples from 684 meteorite falls, mostly in Arizona. The Center became an important player in space research through the study of extra-terrestrial materials.
