GREAT BEAST PEPPERED FROM SPACE >>> added 11/12/2007

Startling evidence has been found which shows mammoth and other great beasts from the last ice age were blasted with material that came from space. Seven tusks dating to some 35,000 years ago all show signs of having being peppered with meteorite fragments. The ancient remains come from Alaska, but researchers also have a Siberian bison skull with the same pockmarks. JUST THINK ABOUT THAT!

HUGE GREEN FIREBALL OVER NEW MEXICO (AGAIN) >>> added 15/9/2007

On Sept. 13th a remarkable fireball split the skies over New Mexico. Witnesses say it "turned night into day" and reminded them of a full Moon hurtling across the sky. In fact, it was brighter than a full Moon. At least two all-sky cameras captured the event while one amateur astronomer recorded radio echoes from the fireball's ionized trail. What was it? Probably a piece of reentering space junk, but this is not yet certain. Visit http://spaceweather.com for updates plus sights and sounds of the Great New Mexico Fireball. JUST THINK ABOUT THAT!

TUNGUSKA CRATER CLAIM >>> added 26/6/2007

Scientists have identified a possible crater left by the biggest space impact in modern times - the Tunguska event. The blast levelled more than 2,000 sq km of forest near the Tunguska River in Siberia on 30 June 1908.A comet or asteroid is thought to have exploded in the Earth's atmosphere with a force equal to 1,000 Hiroshima bombs. Now, a University of Bologna team says a lake near the epicentre of the blast may be occupying a crater hollowed out by a chunk of rock that hit the ground. Lake Cheko - though shallow - fits the proportions of a small, bowl-shaped impact crater, say the Italy-based scientists. JUST THINK ABOUT THAT!
