About 50,000 years ago, a large meteorite, weighing about 300,000 tons, hit the Earth at a speed of 40,000 miles per hour. The result of this encounter is now known as the Barringer Crater. The crater, which is the world’s best preserved impact crater, was discovered in 1902 by a mining engineer, whose family owns the crater till present day.
