A giant crater bigger than Paris meteorite cause was discovered by scientists.
A A giant iron meteorite crashed in Greenland about 12,000 years ago, leaving a crater larger than Paris, scientists say. The crater has just been discovered under the ice, thanks to a sophisticated radar system.
A 31 km wide crater has just been discovered in Greenland. (drawing).
It is meteor crater first found in Greenland – and also the first crater under the ice on Earth. It is also among the 25 largest known craters in the world planetaccording to the journal Science Advances.
Scientists estimate that the meteorite could be composed mainly of iron, about 1.5 km in diameter.
Scientists suspect that a giant iron meteorite crashed into Greenland around 12,000 years ago. (drawing).
The impact of the meteorite that created the 31 km wide crater could have major regional and even global impacts, scientists say. study said.
If correct, the meteorite could have caused widespread wildfires in North America, tsunamis and black smoke blanketing the globe.
If the above hypothesis is confirmed, this collision could have important implications for the history of mankind.
The impact of a meteorite of this size could be equivalent to the power of 70,000 nuclear bombs. (drawing).
More precisely, if this hypothesis is correct, it can prove “Younger Dryas Effect Hypothesis” is the truth.
Theo “Younger Dryas Effect Hypothesis”a major impact in North America about 11,000–13,000 years ago during the last ice age caused wildfires across the Americas and Europe, as well as disruptive weather in the North Atlantic .
This led to the extinction of many giant mammals, such as mammoths and mastodons – and possibly later the first human ancestors to settle in the Americas.
