The most readily and widely studied of the extinct radionuclides in meteorites is 129I, and there is an extensive data base for meteorite chronology based on this isotope, but also significant uncertainty about how to interpret many of the data. If the data are interpreted as a straightforward chronology, a time span is inferred for most meteorite classes that appears too long for the events being dated to have taken place in the nebula. -Authors
