Scientists from the Australian National University (ANU) have discovered an asteroid impact zone that’s nearly 248 miles wide in central Australia. The twin-impact zone is the result of an asteroid that broke in half just before hitting Earth.

The researchers found the impact zone while conducting geothermal research that included drilling. They found remnants of the impact, such as free rock that had been turned into glass, inside the Earth’s crust. The scientists described the findings in the journal Tectonophysics.

The scientists still don’t know how long ago the asteroid impact was, but they believe the event was powerful enough to cause a mass extinction. Andrew Glikson, one of the scientists from ANU, believes the asteroid hit Earth at least 300 million years ago, but the scientists haven’t been able to find a known extinction that lines up with the impact zone.

“At this stage, we do not have all the answers,” Glikson told Australia’s ABC News, “but there has been a lot of interest, and people are certainly interested in any impact on the dinosaurs.”

About Earth Changes Media w/ Mitch Battros

Mitch Battros is a scientific journalist who is highly respected in both the scientific and spiritual communities due to his unique ability to bridge the gap between modern science and ancient text. Founded in 1995 – Earth Changes TV was born with Battros as its creator and chief editor for his syndicated television show. In 2003, he switched to a weekly radio show as Earth Changes Media. ECM quickly found its way in becoming a top source for news and discoveries in the scientific fields of astrophysics, space weather, earth science, and ancient text. Seeing the need to venture beyond the Sun-Earth connection, in 2016 Battros advanced his studies which incorporates our galaxy Milky Way - and its seemingly rhythmic cycles directly connected to our Solar System, Sun, and Earth driven by the source of charged particles such as galactic cosmic rays, gamma rays, and solar rays. Now, "Science Of Cycles" is the vehicle which brings the latest cutting-edge discoveries confirming his published Equation.
