In the same day I witnessed what a meteorite did to Arizona 50 thousand years ago. Within a few seconds a massive explosion ejected millions of tons of earth creating a crater 3/4 miles in diameter and 700ft deep.

This is of course very impressive: the size, mass and speed (6400 km/h or 18 km/sec). There hasn’t been a firework as spectacular since. The price we pay is also very impressive. While the man-made attraction Four Corners cost $3, the natural crater cost $15 to see. I wonder if they pay commission to the meteorite…
