Марсианский пейзаж метеоритного кратера Жаманшин в Казахстане снова поражает своим космическим спокойствием и безмятежностью. Кратер образовался в результате падения метеорита размером около 300 метров, испарившегося при взрыве. Диаметр кратера составляет 14 км, глубина 800 м. Возраст кратера считается примерно около 1 млн лет.

На снимках куски стекловидной массы. Это ударный расплав - Жаманшинит (от Жаманшин). Они и были целью поездки. Сама порода образовалась при температуре примерно 1700 градусов по Цельсию и является застывшим кварцевым песком SiO2 или лешательеритом (фр. Анри Луи Ле-Шателье, 1850-1936). Она похожа на пористую застывшую слоями вулканическую лаву. По местным поверьям "Жаманшин" переводится как - "гиблое место", или как говорили нам местные жители - "долина смерти".

Экспедиция - май 2018.

Impact melt from the meteorite crater Zhamanshin, Kazakhstan. It is 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) in diameter and the age is estimated to be 900,000 ± 100,000 years (Pleistocene). According to local beliefs "zhamanshin" is translated as - "a lost place", or as locals told us - "death valley".

Expedition - may 2018.

"There was a girl who ruled the world and kept a diary of what she'd done;
See nothin' terrified or compromised her livin' in the midnight sun.

I asked her honestly how she keep the shimmer that was in her eye;
Or find the energy to live as free and never let a moment by." By Goodluck *Scenic flight over the PTA astrobleme - Tswaing Crater*

Randonnée de 13km "le météorite" à travers la campagne du #Limousin.
Petite histoire : Ici, il y a environ 200 millions d’années, une météorite géante percute la Terre. L’astéroïde atteint la France à une vitesse de 20 à 50 km par seconde, libérant une énergie équivalente à 14 millions de fois une bombe atomique. Toute vie est détruite dans un rayon de 200 kilomètres. La zone d’impact s’étend sur 20 kilomètres autour de #Rochechouart et #Chassenon…

Amazing things you’ll see in random small towns off of HWY 412. This beautiful, tiny infrastructure is a museum! #ames #hwy412 #oklahoma #astrobleme

On the road again

A few days ago on my way to get groceries. When I left the park I could see clouds in the distance. And as I got further north everything started to have a heavy coat of frost. I know it happens down here but it always seems kind of magical- frozen things in the desert. #bigbendnationalpark #astrobleme

@Regranned from @bbcbrasil - Este é o lago Manicouagan, no Canadá, uma das maiores crateras abertas pelo impacto de um corpo celeste na Terra. De acordo com a @NasaGoddard, o lago surgiu em torno da elevação central da estrutura central do impacto, que tem um diâmetro de cerca de 70km e se compõe de fragmentos de minerais. Ao longo das eras, erosão e gelo reduziram o tamanho da cratera. Especialistas calculam que o impacto que formou a cratera tenha acontecido há 212 milhões de anos, e algunsd dizem que ele teria sido responsável por uma extinção em massa que teria acabado com metade dos seres vivos no planeta. Hoje, o Manicouagan serve como reservatório d'água para Quebec e como uma das regiões mais importantes para a pesca do salmão atlântico.

#Astrobleme (as-truh-bleem | adjective, noun): Geology. an erosional scar on the earth's surface, produced by the impact of a cosmic body, as a meteorite or asteroid.

Today's @dictionarycom Word of the Day is "astrobleme," a scar on Earth's surface produced by the impact of a meteorite or asteroid.

Lake Manicouagan in northern Quebec, Canada, lies in one of the largest impact craters still preserved on Earth's surface. The lake itself surrounds a central uplift of the impact structure, which is about 70 kilometers in diameter and composed of broken fragments of minerals and rock. Overtime glaciation and other erosional processes have reduced the size of the crater.

The impact that formed Manicouagan is thought to have occurred about 212 million years ago, and some scientists believe it may have been responsible for a mass extinction that wiped out more than half of all living species. Today Lake Manicouagan serves as a reservoir and is one of Quebec's most important regions for Atlantic salmon fishing.

I have always wondered why people had no idea what I was talking about when I used the word “astrobleme.” Apparently, I wasn’t pronouncing it correctly. #dictionary #pronouncethis #pronunciation #pronounciate #typography #orthography #astrobleme @dictionarycom #fauxpas #oops #dictionary #english #linguistics #lexicon #noun #astronomy #geology #words #verbiage #nyc #london #toronto
