Giant meteor crater found in Antarctica

Space.com has a story about a 300 mile wide meteor crater, found by NASA satellites under Antarctic ice. Scientists suspect the meteor hit over 250 million years ago, causing twice the impact as the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs.

People were freaking out over chunks of a crumbling comet just a few weeks ago.

Why be scared of comet fragments when you can worry and fret over something the size of Ohio crashing into your house?

I'm joking. No hate mail please.
