Asteroid collision: the crater field that shouldn’t exist

Moon out, as well as Mars and Mercury. We are talking about secondary drilling. They form when an asteroid falls too quickly and throws rocky material away on impact, also leaving smaller craters in its wake. So far, experts have considered such a scenario unlikely on Earth due to the dense atmosphere.

This stuff goes back to an asteroid collision about 280 million years ago during the Permian period, like you A report in the specialized journal “GSA Bulletin”.
