|Darwin Crater was discovered in 1972 by Ramsay J. Ford. The crater lies 26 km south of Queenstown Tasmania.|
The crater was formed by a 20 - 50 m diameter asteroid that struck the Earth approximately 730,000 +/- 40,000 years ago.
The crater has a diameter of 1.2km and is 230 metres deep. It was a lake until about 30 000 years ago, today it is filled with sediment. The crater is ass...

|This aerial view looks west over the 250-meter-deep circular lake that fills the New Quebec Crater, a relatively large, well-preserved crater. The interior topography of the crater is covered by lake sediments that inhibit a determination of whether the structure has a small central uplift. The rocks involved in this impact event are ancient and strongly deformed gneisses of the Precambrian shi...||08/12/2005||1,593|

|The Silverpit crater in the North Sea was discovered in 2002 during a seismic oil exploration .|
The crater is about 2.4 km wide and surrounded by a set of concentric rings, which extend to about 10 km away from its centre.
Its age is thought to be about 65 million years old, roughly coincident with the formation of the Chicxulub Crater.
The crater currently lies below a ...
|Lake Vostok may be the coldest, deepest and most southerly lake on earth. |
The lake's exact age is unknown, but it is probably millions of years old. Vostok's water is considered to be the most pure on earth, since it has remained untouched beneath 4km of ice for its entire lifespan.
The lake sits beneath a Russian research station that has seen the lowest temperatures ever record...
