Ever wanted to see what the creater of a 81 Kt nuclear bomb detonation looks like. This is the crater from Operation Greenhouse. The USA nuclear test program in 1951 on the Enewetak Atol, Pacific Ocean.
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 ...
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a conservation area situated 180 km west of Arusha, Tanzania. The main feature of the area is the Ngorongoro Crater, which is the world's largest unbroken volcanic caldera. The steep sides of the crater mean that it has become a natural enclosure for a very wide variety of wildlife, including most of the species found in East Africa.
On 20.05.1999 a huge British bomb from WW2 was found at the university of Koblenz during excavations for a new building.
On 24.05. the almost 2.000 kg heavy explosive ordnance was defused. An area of 1,8 km around the place of the bomb was evacuated (including two hospitals) - about 15.000 "Kowelenzer" (nickname for the people in Koblenz) had to leave this safety area for four...
A possible impact crater site is the feature known as St. Magnus Bay in the Shetland Islands.
A massive impact seems to be the cause for the peculiar shape of the bay.
It has a diameter of eleven kilometres and is about 165m deep, which is very deep for the coastal waters in the region. The crater is oval in shape because of the east-west geological compression that the area...
This crater is located inside Virunga National Park, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The main crater is about two km (6,562 ft.) wide and usually contains a lava lake. The crater presently has two distinct cooled lava benches within the crater walls - one at about 3175m (10,400 ft) and a lower one at about 2975m (9,800 ft).
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...
The Tallboy was an Earth quake bomb developed by Barnes Wallis and brought into operation by the British in 1944. It weighed five tons and, carried by the Avro Lancaster bomber, was effective against concrete structures against which earlier, smaller bombs had proved ineffective.
