Google Earth Plug-in: Bedout Crater

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


A 180 km wide crater, called Bedout, off the northwestern coast of Australia was caused by an asteroidal impactor (estimated the size of Mt. Everest) that struck 250.1 +/- 1 million years ago forming the Permian/Triassic boundary (end of the Paleozoic) .
This event is sometimes known as `the Great Dying`, because 97% of all life became extinct.
This was one of the worst events in the history of life on the planet.
