Oldest material on Earth found inside meteorite

January 14, 2020 - Scientists have discovered the oldest known solid material on Earth in a meteorite which landed in Australia in the 1960s. The tiny specks of stardust predate our sun by up to three billion years.

The team of researchers from the U.S. and Switzerland found dust grains within the Murchison meteorite – which fell to Earth in the 1960s – that are as much as 7.5 billion years old, BBC News said.
