The origins of our solar system can be investigated by observational astronomy, computer simulations, and materials on Earth that date from the beginning of the solar system, that are brought to earth by space missions or fall as meteorites. Chondrites are primitive meteorites, that have been largely unaltered from pre-planetary times. They are probes of the environment and timescales of the protoplanetary disk. I will discuss their composition and texture and introduce some of our recent research showing that chondritic constituents formed over several millions of years and record an evolving disk.
