Future Champion of the Late Heavy Weight Bombardment

Late Heavy BombardmentThe Chaotic Solar System has a new Champion of the Late Heavy Weight Bombardment.

But for how long before he loses his crown to a bigger and even older king of the ring?

Late Planet Weight Bombardment?

"We know there were big asteroids, but we have increased the size significantly," explained Prof Schultz. "The previous estimate for the Imbrium asteroid was in the order of 80km, and we've increased that by a factor of three."

Chaotic Solar System

Astronomers various Solar System in Collision and Upheaval theories suggests small planet sized impactors and multiple planets changing their orbits. Planet Earth had dust and rock raining down.

This is Modified Velikovsky and catastrophism mythology?

Solar System in Collision

Late Heavy Bombardment

But in this period of the Solar System's turbulent history - aptly known as the Late Heavy Bombardment - asteroid collisions would have been commonplace ... "And as a result it stirred the pot, so to speak. It sent asteroids between Jupiter and Mars into chaos - and they sent material into the inner Solar System, colliding into the inner planets. "And what this study says is some of these asteroids were humungous." The researchers now plan to use the same method re-analyse other huge craters scattered across the Solar System. They believe we may have under-estimated just how cataclysmic these past bombardments were.

Solar System in Upheaval

Prof Schultz explained: "At that time, the Moon would have been much closer (to the Earth), only half of its present distance, if even that ...

"This was a time when Jupiter and Saturn were changing their position in the Solar System," said Prof Schultz, "And as a result it stirred the pot, so to speak. It sent asteroids between Jupiter and Mars into chaos

Dark Ages

Mythology around the world suggest periods of darkness, cold conditions with the sun not warming the planet, the stars being blotted out, dust and more asteroids in the firmament etc.

The colossal high-speed impact not only left a giant dent in the near-side of the Moon, it also would have sent billions of tonnes of debris hurtling towards the Earth. Prof Schultz explained: "At that time, the Moon would have been much closer (to the Earth), only half of its present distance, if even that. "So anything coming off the Moon would have covered us in lunar debris."

What if planets were discovered to not physically collide? Some natural mechanic keeps them apart?
