"Also on show at Science Uncovered Space Station will be the Tissint Martian meteorite. It is the largest Martian meteorite
in the Museum's collection and fell to Earth in Morocco in July 2011.
It's thought to be less contaminated than many other meteorites and so
is extremely important to scientists who want to know more about Mars.

And keep a look out for the state-of-the-art digital specimen table called Inside Explorer where you can have a go at cutting through Tissint,
virtually anyway. A hand swipe and zoom in using the 55-inch
interactive screen lets you uncover amazing hidden detail in ways never
before possible."
