Fossilized Clams Had Proof of a Meteorite Effect Inside Them

Fossilized Clams Had Proof of a Meteorite Effect Inside Them

When an extraterrestrial object slams into the Earth, it sends molten rock high into the atmosphere. That debris cools and re-crystallizes and falls back down to Earth. Tiny glass beads that form in this process are called microtektites, and researchers in Florida have found microtektites inside fossilized clams. This story starts over 10 years ago…
