Vesta is a huge rock 500 kilometers across that orbits between Mars and Jupiter.
Evidence indicates that Vesta underwent a tremendous splintering collision about a
billion years ago. In October 1960, a small chunk of rock believed to have
originated on Vesta fell to Earth and was recovered in Australia.
