Most asteroids of the near-Earth population have experienced significant collisional processing since they formed, being disrupted and excavated and consequently producing smaller bodies that are delivered from the Main asteroid Belt to the near-Earth asteroid region, thanks to planetary resonances and non-gravitational forces. By studying meteorites arrived to Earth we can obtain clues on this processing through the study of shock metamorphism and brecciation of their rock constituents, among other features. The massive Chelyabinsk meteorite fall produced about one metric ton of meteorites that can be analyzed to decipher the physical processes affecting the surface of this Potentially Hazardous Asteroid. Here we describe physical properties of Chelyabinsk samples, and how impact processing has affected asteroid albedos, a first step in order to relate this data with the reflectance properties of near-Earth asteroids population. This information will be of major interest for future asteroid deflecting missions.
