Harvard researchers led by Michael Petaeva presented evidence that 13,000 years ago a comet collided with the Earth, which led to the death of the ancient inhabitants of North America.

In samples of ice, extracted in Greenland, scientists have discovered platinum dust - very dense deposits that were formed 13,000 years ago. Platinum - cosmic origin. What was the conclusion: source - the comet.

In addition, some studies show that about 13 000 years ago in the Northern Hemisphere began a sharp cold snap. Which may have been caused by the fall of a celestial body - a comet, because getting into the atmosphere after the impact of millions of tons of dust and moisture.

In 2007, researchers led by James Kennett of the University of California at Santa Barbara found deposits of microscopic beads that are formed as a result of rapid heating rocks to about 2000 degrees. As a result, the impact of a celestial body on the terra firma of such rapid heating is possible.

Kennett later discovered material like fused glass in a thin layer of sediment in the United States. It is estimated that it formed about 13 thoUSAnd years ago at a temperature of at least 2000 degrees. True, the comet is likely to fall on the territory of modern Iran. But cometary material was cast as much as neighboring continent.

cooling lasted for about 500 years. Perhaps this is it ruined Native American. They disappeared about 13,000 years ago, along with large animals in the period in which they hunted.
