Scientists: the Fall of an asteroid and the ozone layer

American scientists have come to the conclusion that the fall of an asteroid medium in size and in the ocean can lead to the depletion of the ozone layer and the corresponding increased levels of ultraviolet radiation reaching the surface of our planet. Dr. Elisabeth Pierazzo (Elisabetta Pierazzo) from the Institute of planetwide in Tucson conducted a series of experiments using computer simulation and found that in the case of asteroid sizes from 500 meters to 1 kilometer in the Pacific ocean to the atmosphere will be thrown out so much steam and sea salt, it can affect the ozone layer. The Read more [...]
