Episode #304: Airbursts and Cratering Impacts

In this episode, we read from the five papers recently published by the Comet Research Group in their new journal, about evidence for an airburst that destroyed Abu Hureyra ~12,800 years ago, and comparisons of impact proxies at Meteor Crater to materials found at known nuclear test sites.  There is also a paper about a possible impact or airburst much more recently, around 700BC, over Kansas, that was witnessed by the native american Pawnee.

We also discuss the new paper about Gunung Padang, a megalithic mound in Indonesia that has evidence it's earliest building phase may be as much as 24,000 years old.
