Fossils and Asteroid Impacts

Find out how examining the rocks and fossils around an asteroid impact crater can help us reveal its full effects.

Several million years ago, a large asteroid hit the area now known as Brazil. The impact was devastating, leaving a crater over 40km wide, the largest in South America. But is it possible to work out what effects this devastating event had on the environment? Can studying the fossils before and after the impact help us piece together what happened to the plants and animals in the region? Join us to discover the answers.
