Main Question or Discussion Point
OK, this is reported in the Website nkown as the "Unmuseum", and they specialise in the wierd. They've got stuff on Nesse, UFO's, etc., but they seem to have some integrity. So I'm reluctant to take their word for it, especially when the story is big enough that it should have made the news. Has anyone else heard about this?
Asteroid Hits Antarctica - According to scientists at Australia's Davis station in Antarctica, a significantly large asteroid hit Earth in September of 2004. Fortunately the impact was in an uninhabited portion of Antarctica, but if the object had slammed into a city it would have destroyed it. The asteroid was the size a bus and weighed about 1000 tons and was traveling at about 150 miles per second. Dr Andrew Klekociuk who was on duty observing the stratosphere that night got a strange signal from30 kms overhead. At first it was thought to be a problem with the equipment, but later it was determined that a asteroid had hit the ground approximately 800 miles from the station. It is thought to be the biggest asteroid to hit the Earth in the last ten years.
