250 million year old huge crater found

Antarctic crater linked to ancient die-off

The biggest mass animal die-off we know about may be linked to a giant crater just found in the Antarctic. The crater is more than twice as big as the Yucatan crater linked to the dinosaur die-off. Other evidence is available indicating the Permian-Triassic was the result of a hit by a large meteor or comet.
