Warren was the first to propose that vast differences in the make-up of defined sets of meteorites indicate that, even though they all come to Earth via the asteroid belt, between Mars and Jupiter, a large subset originally formed beyond the planet Jupiter. This observation is known as "the Warren gap" and has since led other researchers to assess meteorites that formed at the same time, but were separated by the Jupiter barrier.  Click here to read the article.
