    How would our world react if a meteorite was on a collision course with our planet and there was no chance of it missing us? The answer is simple: the world would return to its roots.

Proposing that the meteorite suddenly changed its course and missed our planet, how would our world join together through the fear of the event and celebrate with joy and peace? In-light of the meteorite missing the planet, a museum decides to have a worldwide exhibition featuring a piece of “art” from every culture except Antarctica. Since every culture does not have the word “art” in their language,…

    I think that a bomb caused the Tunguska Explosion, because there is no way a meteorite could have caused it and not left an indention. The Tunguska Explosion happened on the morning of June 30, 1908, at 7:17 A.M. (Yeomans). It occurred in the area of Stony Tunguska River near Siberia, Russia. Even though the explosion occurred on June 30, the first report of the explosion was on July 2. If the explosion was as big as the witnesses say it was, I don’t see how people didn’t know about it.…

    million years ago a meteorite roughly 10 km across hit the earth’s surface, and the impact would be a catalyst to the extinction of 75% of the species living on earth at the time, including the dinosaurs. The impact of the meteorite would have instantly killed any organisms within proximity. But a majority of destruction happened after the impact. The impact blew enough dust, and debris into the atmosphere…

    It would have been a dramatic and fiery event, with the meteor blazing across the sky. As it broke apart, large fragments of metal-rich rock would have crashed to Earth with explosive force, creating a dozen giant craters. The Northern Territory site, which was discovered in the 1930s by white prospectors with the help of Luritja guides, is today known as the Henbury Meteorites Conservation Reserve. The story of Henbury indicates a living memory of an event that occurred a few thousands of years…

    Two hundred and fifty two years ago, huge volcanoes erupted in Siberia and continued to put out basalt lava and clouds of gases for up to five hundred thousand years (Benton 1). They were not the average cone shaped volcanoes we know today, instead they are huge rifts in the Earth’s crust (Benton 2). There is much evidence of the Deccan Traps in India took place around the same time as the dinosaur extinction. The Deccan Traps erupted on a huge scale, which could create a huge impact on the…

    In India, there are records of ancient volcanic activity that occurred at the time of the K-T boundary. Aside from the iridium layer of rock that gives evidence to an impact, there is also a 110-mile crater found in the Yucatan peninsula that also dates back to the time of the dinosaurs’ extinction point, and at that crater; there are no non-avian dinosaurs that were found at the impact layer, so that also gives evidence that something was causing the dinosaurs to die before the meteorite…

    The probability of a diamond coming from coal is actually pretty low. There is no actual explanation for the formation of diamonds. Scientists cannot study them because the depth at which they form. If a diamond did form from coal, however, it would be a very impure one.
