Massive impact crater under Greenland’s ice points to climate-altering impact in the time of humans

Recommended Posts

Very good article. the jury is still out as to the validity, so follow-up drilling of the site may eventually either add weight to it or shoot a hole in it.

Obviously fake.  How could it have hit the earth 100,000 years ago when the earth is only 6,000 years old?

.......What he brought home clinched the case for a grand discovery. Hidden beneath Hiawatha is a 31-kilometer-wide impact crater, big enough to swallow Washington, D.C., Kjær and 21 co-authors report today in a paper in Science Advances. The crater was left when an iron asteroid 1.5 kilometers across slammed into Earth, possibly within the past 100,000 years.

Though not as cataclysmic as the dinosaur-killing Chicxulub impact, which carved out a 200-kilometer-wide crater in Mexico about 66 million years ago, the Hiawatha impactor, too, may have left an imprint on the planet's history.......

Yes we seem to have a slight discrepency in the numbers and facts. ;)
