According to Silicide Spherules From Space, Catastrophic Cosmic Impacts on Earth are Far More Frequent Than Scientists Thought

Tuesday, August 24, 2021 - 1:32pm

Multiple similar finds of silicide spherules worldwide indicate that large-scale impacts capable of delivering ejecta to space have been more frequent in geological history than suggested by known evidence of cratering.

Key Points: 
  • Multiple similar finds of silicide spherules worldwide indicate that large-scale impacts capable of delivering ejecta to space have been more frequent in geological history than suggested by known evidence of cratering.
  • The reported data shows that silicide spherules have condensed from vapor plume ejected beyond the atmosphere and have ablated on atmospheric reentry at a cosmic velocity exceeding 13 km/s.
  • The chemical composition of iron silicide spherules is closely corresponding to the 1893K 1154K temperature span of condensation sequences predicted for carbon-rich gas.
  • Iron silicide spherules indicate that cosmic impacts of catastrophic magnitude are far more frequent in geological history than suggested by evidence of cratering discovered so far.
