Trapped Xenon in Meteorites
Xenon in meteorites can be resolved into a mixture of component X and trapped xenon with the following composition,124Xe:126Xe: 128 Xe: 130Xe: 131Xe: 132Xe: 134Xe: 136Xe = 0.0276: 0.0248: 0.501: 1.00: 5.04: 6.19: 2.31: 1.90. This trapped meteoritic xenon is distinct from xenon trapped in the average carbonaceous chondrite which is shown to represent the average composition of the total xenon in meteorites containing various mixtures of component X and trapped meteoritic xenon.
