Re: craters and the k/t

Some time ago, a couple of months, one of the cores taken by the JOIDES
Resolution, the Ocean Drilling Program drillship, in the Caribbean
Sea recovered tektites at the K-T boundary. They commented that it seemed
to be a reasonable connection to the Chixulub impact crater. The
scientific staff on the ODP ship are among the best avail;able and I think
there was no mistake.
