A study supporting a major impact at the onset of the Younger Dryas period, conducted in America, was published recently. It was an examination of ice age cores and the discovery of melted spherules indicating an impact 12, 800 years ago. Busy time, 10, 000 BC, wasn’t it?
The woolly mammoths are also in the news with reports that Hwang Woo-suk, the Korean scientist famous for making up results, has been sent samples from Yuka, a well-preserved baby mammoth. Expect little mammoths to be taking their first steps since being wiped out by an asteroid, sometime soon.
Of course, ice age experts have already made the connection between the Younger Dryas Impact Event and the extinction of mammoths. This report names Professor Kenneth Tankersley theorizing that the population of mammoths fell from healthy to zero within a lifetime.
