– By Ayman Al-Washawash – Researchers in Australia have found the oldest crater caused by a meteorite when it fell to the ground, which is the Yarubaoba crater with a diameter of about 70 km, but it has completely eroded.

The researchers stressed that this hole resulted from the collision of one of the heavenly bodies with what is known today in the state of Western Australia, about 2.2 billion years ago, according to researchers under the supervision of Timon Erickson from the NASA Johnson Center for Space Research, in the American city of Houston, in their study published in The current issue of the “Nature Communications” magazine.

Celestial bodies were falling on the earth continuously at the beginning of the Earth’s life, but the movements of the Earth’s lithosphere (tectonic plates) and the erosion of these plates over billions of years caused these craters to completely disappear.
