The first large crater ever found under ice, the discovery could possibly be linked to a controversial extinction theory.



“Could that be an impact crater? they asked,” MacGregor says. “They all laughed. But then they said, Maybe it is.”
As they looked closer, someone on the team also pointed out that a large meteorite in the collection at the Natural History Museum of Denmark—near where they parked their bicycles every day—had come from that same region of Greenland.
“We asked ourselves, could the two be linked?” says lead author Kurt Kjær, a glacial geologist and curator at the Natural History Museum of Denmark and the University of Copenhagen.

Bright Insight--that guy's channel is awsome.

More & more people are & will continue to wake up to the fact that they in no way require the University system in order to do independent research and release it to the world. In fact,.the academic system is a hindrance more than anything else.

Like all human institutions the "academic system" has shortcomings, but it's far from useless.

Agreed. All mankind is flawed, but science has a methodology to keep it honest. Mistakes can be made, but most scientists are sincere. The problem isn't the scientists, but those who politicize science.

Anything that would create a 19 mile wide crater would have global devastating effects. Awesome discovery.
There are a number of people who have been working on this theory for a number of years. There is a lot a geological evidence of the flood in North America. And these are not the ken burns young earthers. No religious implications. I am an atheist. I have no interest in biblical mythologies but every culture on every continent have independently passed down a flood story throughout their histories.
