A Little Perspective
Tuesday, June 06, 2006 :::
Science has a way of placing the squabbles, sniping and disagreements of the moment in perspective. Here is a pretty good example:
Planetary scientists have found evidence of a meteor impact much larger and earlier than the one that killed the dinosaurs -- an impact that they believe caused the biggest mass extinction in Earth's history.
The crater is 300 miles wide and the impact may have helped create Australia.
Think about that the next time someone bleats about traffic-clogged roadways. And look to the sky...
