Re: Reuters news items



Another impact article:

http://greenvilleonline.com/space/space.html

This article doesn't mention it directly, but the isotopes found in the
buckyballs could only have been created by a carbon-rich star, so the object
would have been extra-solar in origin and therefore likely to have been moving
very fast, even faster than a local comet, and much faster than the likely
impact velocity of the K/T impactor.
