Congratulations! You survived another potential doomsday! Very early this morning, a 'massive' asteroid hastily whizzed past Earth, off to some other part of the solar system where it will wreak untold havoc - or, more likely, just keep flying solo. So why is it that some groups are saying NASA had it wrong about this 'near-miss' Armageddon?
University of Gothenburg researchers recently found a double crater in Sweden that suggests a unique twin meteorite event occurred 458 million years ago. This is the first proven occurrence of such an event.
Sixty-six million years ago, a massive asteroid struck Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. As a result, the Earth changed forever, spelling the end of the dinosaurs and ushering in a new age where other animals could flourish. Now new research has revealed that it wasn't mammals who inherited the Earth, but fish.
