This poster features a table with all new information about the size, location, types of materials found and features of 177 verified craters discovered on Earth (copyright 2008).

  • The world map shows all 177 craters plotted geographically with the names of the craters, latitude and longitude and keyed to a data table.
  • There are pictures and text about some of the amazing rock and mineral types that are created ONLY by hyper-velocity impacts.
  • A sectional graphic shows how craters are formed when the meteorite/ asteroid/ comet hits the ground, and the types of crater they produce.
  • A section is devoted to Gene Shoemaker, considered to be the "father of impact science."
  • A handy timeline graph on the bottom of the poster shows the dating of 6 extinction events and their titles.
