Evidence of a Smash-Up 4.5 Billion Years Ago (image) University of Arizona Share Print E-Mail Caption In this image of a sample studied, different chemical elements appear in different colors. The round, mostly green object ringed by red is a silicate chondrule, whereas the large red object on the right is a sulfide chondrule. The sulfide chondrule was deformed during the collision with the silicate chondrule while it was still very hot. The scalebar is 100 microns long.
