Mars Bluff not-so-nuclear crater

Mars Bluff not-so-nuclear crater

The small town of Mars Bluff was the place where in 1958 a B-47 Stratojet accidentally dropped a nuclear bomb - fortunately without the removable core. 7,600 pounds of conventional explosives created a 75 feet wide crater. Some people from the family living in a nearby farm house were injured from the explosion, nobody was killed.

Awkward thing, especially for some Air Force guys...

Tswaing meteor crater

Forty kilometers north of Pretoria lies a ring of hills a kilometer in diameter and 100 meters high. These hills are the walls of an impact crater left by an asteroid which hit there some 200 000 years ago. The Tswaing crater is similar in size to the well-known Barringer meteor crater in Arizona. The crater walls at Tswaing were originally about twice as high as they are today.
