Crater discovered in Western Australia using Google EarthMikey 2 comments
Geologist Arthur Hickman is the proud 'owner' of the Hickman Crater, named after him since being the first known person to discover the 10,000 year old impact crater 35km north of Newman in Western Australia.
It's a pretty nifty find no doubt. According to Hickman's colleague Dr Andrew Glickson, the 270 metre wide crater "suggest that the amount of energy released when the meteorite hit was the equivalent of 200,000 to 300,000 tonnes of TNT".
You can see the crater for yourself on Google maps at .
