This is very interesting, Giana. The diamonds that formed from the pressure of the impact on the "Hypatia Pebble" are pretty amazing, too.

Intriguing! I'd love to know if they ever find traces of the one that killed off the dinosaurs, though...

Actually, that was an asteroid, so never mind. Although, it would be nice if they could find traces of that asteroid... Give the scientists some legitimacy in the face of right-wing doubters.
