Information about Asteroid Vesta Meteorite
Vesta is the second-most-massive and second-largest body in the asteroid belt, after the dwarf planet Ceres, and it contributes an estimated 9% of the mass of the asteroid belt.
It is slightly larger than Pallas, but about 25% more massive. Vesta is the only known remaining rocky protoplanet (with a differentiated interior) of the kind that formed the terrestrial planets. Numerous fragments of Vesta were ejected by collisions one and two billion years ago that left two enormous craters occupying much of Vesta's southern hemisphere. Debris from these events has fallen to Earth as howardite–eucrite–diogenite (HED) meteorites, which have been a rich source of information about Vesta.
