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.

Tunguska Explosion - In 1908 a blazing fireball descended from the sky and devastated an area about half the size of Rhode Island in the wilderness of Tunguska, Siberia.

The most powerful natural explosion in recent Earth history occurred on 1908 June 30 when a meteor exploded above the Tunguska River in Siberia, Russia. Detonating with an estimated power 1,000 times greater than the atomic bomb dropped over Hiroshima, the Tunguska event leveled trees over 40 kilometers away and shook the ground in a tremendous earthquake.

Sibérie: cette «porte de l'enfer» qui ne cesse de grandir

The Batagaika crater in Siberia is widening by up to a year. The Batagaika crater is thought to have begun after local people cut down some trees in the or early which allowed the melting of the permafrost.

The Lonar Lake The Lonar Lake is a saline soda lake located at Lonar in Buldana district, Maharashtra, India which was created by a meteor impact.

1979: From excess traces of iridium in late Cretaceous rocks, American scientist Luis Walter Alvarez theorizes that a large comet or asteroid struck the earth 65 million years ago, raising clouds of dust that reduced the amount od solar radiation penetrating the atmosphere and triggering the mass extinctions of dinosaurs and other Mesozoic life.

Forty kilometers north of Pretoria lies a ring of hills a kilometer in diameter and 100 meters high. These hills are the walls of an impact crater left by an asteroid which hit there some 200 000 years ago. The Tswaing crater is similar in size to the well-known Barringer meteor crater in Arizona.
