How the Earth was Made (Season 1)
How the Earth was Made (Season 1) is a 13-part documentary television series aired on the History Channel, showing how geological processes have shaped our planet. The series examines some of the most well-known locations and geological phenomena in the world, including California's San Andreas Fault, the Mariana Trench, the Krakatoa volcano, the Alps, the Atacama Desert, Tsunami, and Asteroids. Using interviews with experts, geological evidence, and computer generated graphics, the series explains in an easy-to-understand way how those locations and geological phenomena have been shaped by the immensely powerful, and at times violent, forces of geology.
|Episode 10 - Asteroids|
A look at how asteroids played a role in the formation of the Earth; a study of how the Barringer Meteor Crater in Arizona was formed, and why little evidence remains of the meteor itself that created it.
