Further investigation by Chile’s National Service of Geology and Mining reports that there is no evidence that space rocks, or any other natural cause, could be attributed to the fires.
New research sheds light on the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis and what platinum can tell us about it.
The water locked in asteroids near Earth could fill around 320,000 Olympics-size swimming pools—significantly more than the amount of water locked up at the lunar poles.
Dust spawned by a gigantic collision in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter 400 million years earlier triggered an ice age on Earth.
The reason: to test whether a spacecraft impact can deflect an asteroid’s trajectory, as a means to protect Earth from rogue space rocks.
“The universe and the observer exist as a pair. I cannot imagine a consistent theory of the universe that ignores consciousness,” Linde concluded.
Close examination of the rock layers revealed that the crater was already packed with debris within the first 24 hours, with an estimated 425 feet of material filling the gaping hole within that first day.
Police officers from Devon and Cornwall in UK have launched a huge search operation to look for asteroid debris after neighbors reported that they saw a mysterious glowing object to fall from the sky.
Massive space rock poses no threat but Elon Musk warns ‘a big rock will hit Earth eventually and we currently have no defence’.
Some of the rocks resemble carbonaceous chondrite meteorites that have been found crash-landed on Earth.
The space agency has a craft orbiting the rock, designated Osiris Rex. A new map is presently being traced for the asteroid, and it will probably feature mythological bird names.
Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and cosmochemist Natalie Starkey recently discussed what would happen if the asteroid that caused the Chelyabinsk impact event hit a heavily-populated city.
Archival records from sky surveys show it had previously been observed but wasn’t recognised as a near-Earth asteroid.
