British scientists have confirmed that one of the rarest meteorites ever to fall to Earth is from a time when the Solar System was born.    It provides a glimpse of a period, 4.5 billion years ago, when the planets were just beginning to form.    The meteorite has a composition that is quite unlike Earth rocks and one that is distinct from all other space rocks so far recovered. It may even belong in a meteorite class of its own, say researchers at London's Natural History Museum.

Where is the single highest mountain in our solar system? It’s on Mars, the super-giant volcano Olympus Mons (Mt Olympus). At 14 miles high and 388 miles across, it is almost 3 times as high as Mt Everest, so wide its base would cover Arizona, or the whole of Britain. The crater is easily large enough to swallow London. However Olympos Mons doesn’t conform to people’s idea of a mountain; its sides are so slightly inclined, you wouldn’t even break a sweat if you climbed it.
