Denis – From the composition it will be possible then to come up with some answers. Such small meteoroids have a high chance of being fragments from a collision in the not so distant past. Knowing its orbit is really helpful – so it had an aphelion at the outer edge of the Main Belt and so would have been ejected from that region to become an Earth-crosser.
