The 73rd annual meeting of the Meteoritical Society takes place, from 26-30 July 2010, in New York City (United States).

Technical sessions cover a wide range of topics on meteoritics and planetary science. A two-day workshop (Disks, Meteorites, Planetesimals) at the American Museum of Natural History will precede the meeting, and a one-day symposium (Chondrules: their role in early solar system history) will follow.
