We have now had 65 million year's stretch of good luck and that is a long time. The odds are clearly against us which is clear just by looking at the surface of the moon.
65 million years ago a large meteorite hit the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico making a crater that had a diameter of about 180 kilometers to a place we call Chicxulub. The scientists have estimated that the core diameter of this asteroid was about 6 miles (10 kilometers). And yet this was enough to wipe out dinosaurs together with everything that was large and walking or standing on ground. This meant that everything died that could not escape to underground or a large body of water and still find food until the worst was over a year or so later. That is at least the theory.
We now have some evidnece that this explanation might actually be not correct. There are discrepancies now with the layr that extincted the dinosauds and the timing of the Yucutan...
Recently we have discovered a much larger asteroid hit Antarctica about 214 million years ago. This asteroid was estimated to have had a core diameter of about 30 miles or 45 kilometers. The destructive power of this asteroid was enough to wipe out 90% of all life forms on earth as can be seen from the fossil findings. This crater is 300 miles wide ( 480 km ) and is located one mile below the ice shelf covering the Antarctica.
A huge asteroid, M&M-600, hit the upper left corner of the Baltic Bay between Finland and Sweden. When did it happen? We have two clear time periods to put this, one was 280 million years ago and the other 450 million years ago. The Scientific community is still in odds with this claim but they have no explanations for the facts above and deep in the earth's crust.
We do not know which one is correct, or in case that asteroid that hit the Antarctica hit even earlier than the indicated 214 million years ago then that leaves only one spot for M&M 600 and that would be 450 million years ago. This would however mean that we have not yet found the asteroid that hit the earth 214 million years ago. The large asteroids like these will trigger mass destruction of life and our knowledge from the past mass extinctions tell currently only this story.
It is hard to say if the mountain range between Norway and Sweden was fully formed at the time when M&M 600 hit or was it participating to this formation. M&M 600 came low over the horizon from the North-West and it kept on going further until it settled itself deep under the central Finland. The shock waves from this collision may have triggered large instability to the continental North-Western Russia and that supports the hit time of 450 million years ago. See the graphs below. The rim diameter of this crater is about 600 kilometers (380 miles) as estimated from the space images. To make this large crater the asteroid core diameter is calculated to have been closer to 70 kilometers or 45 miles. The destruction on the planet must have been immense. It is still somewhat unclear when it all happened and we have to ask what happened earlier with this if the asteroid in Antarctica created already a mass distinction of the species. Did we have actually a double hit with the twin coming down some 60 to 80 million years later in Antarctica? The climate changes on earth the potential landing time for this "space ship" was perhaps 300 million years ago, a time when oxygen content in the atmosphere started declining sharply.
This M&M 600 impact crater was discovered by Galactic Wind in December 2006 while inspired by "Kalevala", the "Ilias and Odyssey" of Finland to check the recently released topographic space images by NASA. The mythology was referring to sightings of large meteorites and that writer interpreted these to have formed the Baltic Sea. Of course nobody could have survived to tell the story but that part is not important in a mythology. The actual form of Baltic Sea supports this type history and that may be the reason for the mythology - though a multitude of other explanations are equally plausible. The 2 minute angle view images revealed instantly something that resembled a huge crater rim centered close to the upper left corner of the Baltic Bay. When the images were enhanced with color and then transformed to monochromatic, a huge almost perfectly round crater appeared. That nobody had noticed them earlier sounds amazing but the size of this crater is so huge that no logic brings it up for a hunter or a wanderer on ground. It covers the territories over half of Finland, Northern part of Sweden, a little bit of Norway, back to Finland and then to Russia and Kola Peninsula and finally South still on Russian territory before returning back to Finland.
From it's age we currently know only that a small crater called "Lappajarvi", is close to it's southern rim and this one dates back some 73 million years.
Is it a coincidence that some mining companies are looking for Nickel deposit in Finland? Finland is actually one of the few countries in the world where large sulphide-hosted nickel deposits are mined. So what was the composition of this 70 km rock and what angle did it hit the earth? This gets now more interesting as the thickness of the earth's crust averages 30 to 40 kilometers over the earth with peak thickness of about 70 kilometers under Mt. Everest. One asks why is the crust over 50 kilometers thick in central Finland close to the impact area? Is the center of the asteroid just sitting under the central Finland while the rest of it splintered. And what is at the real impact point - that appears to be at the bottom of the Bay of Bothnia?
The Scandinavia is known as one the oldest and most stable rock formations on earth. Noteworthy is also the rim and some radials has and has had some the oldest and richest mining fields in Northern Europe. During the past years we have also seen a great interest to mining on the Finnish territory - is that a coincidence?
M&M-600 may also still be impact the local geography and the theory of the rising and tilting of the ground that is generally believe to have been cause by the weight of the Ice that disappeared when the latest ice age ended some 20,000 years ago. Is this really so? A couple of kilometers ice weighs very little compared to what 70 km of solid rock can do.
The crater is centered to the western top section of the Bay of Bothnia between Finland and Sweden creating a crater with a diameter of about 600 km ( 370 miles). When did this happen?
We have three alternative time slots to choose: 1) 600 million years ago, 2) 750 million years ago, and 3) 2.3 billion years ago.
These time periods all represent a total freeze-up of the planet earth, meaning everything on the surface was frozen. This kind of total freezing could result only from the sun's radiation from have been blocked so that it could not reach the surface of the earth for several years.
A super volcano with major tectonic eruptions from inside the earth or major asteroids, much larger than the one that hit the earth 65 million years ago, are the only two phenomena that could create violent enough conditions to cause the change. At the first instant everything on the surface of the planet would burn instantly and with the huge break-up on the earth's crust following the impact vast amounts of volcanic ash would rise into the atmosphere creating conditions that would block all sunshine from reaching the earth's surface putting the whole earth into a deep freeze. The atmosphere of the planet would be gone in an instant. When the remaining gas layer would finally clear many years later the surface of the earth would be totally covered by snow and ice and that would reflect most all of the sun's radiation back to the space with very little heating effect to the planet itself. The conditions would not change until the planet would slowly gain back it's atmosphere.
Where is it's core?
The Meteorite that hit Yucatan peninsula in Mexico killed the dinosaurs and 65% of all life on earth had a core diameter of close to only 10 kilometers. The recently discovered that hit Antarctica perhaps 200-230 million years ago destroyed over 90% of all life forms on earth had a diameter of about 45 kilometers. The crater in Antarctica is about 480 km wide. Here we have a crater diameter that is about 600 km wide. Simple math reveals that the diameter of this one must have been between 60 km to 70 km.
This diameter is more than the thickness of the Earth's crust, the rock formation floating above the molten magma (fifth picture below).
The picture on the top left shows the Northern Europe as seen from NOAA's satellite image at 2 minute view angle resolution. The top right image is the same after some color enhancements. All this information is embedded into the picture on the left and became visible after de-colorization. The next two are cuts from these larger ones and show the crater. The fifth is a map from USGS that shows the thickness of the earth's crust. It is peculiar that the thickness of the crust below the South-central Finland is more than 50 kilometers, while under the mountain range between Sweden and Norway it is less than 40 kilometers. The earth's crust below the Finnish southern "flatlands" is actually thicker that the crust under the Swiss Alps. Is this a coincidence or is the 60- 70 km core of the Asteroid still intact down there? The last picture shows the size of the asteroid and it's assumed impact point. The earth's crust under the Finnish flatlands is over 50 km thick while just next to it under the mountain ranges between Sweden and Norway it is unexpectedly only 30 to 40 km thick. This asteroid would explain why the earth is still raising on the Finnish coastal areas and tilting on the other side more and more towards east as some claim the shorelines of lake Oulu are telling. So far the raising land has been explained by the aftermath of the last ice age and the disappearance of the weight of 2-3 km thick ice shelf.
