Re: 13 kya: Case Strengthens For Cosmic Explosion Over Canada



I have some trouble with the statement below. As any bird hunter knows, hunters are continually being harmlessly pelted by bird shot (formerly lead, now mostly steel I think [I stopped hunting some years ago] ). As Greg Paul has repeatedly pointed out, small pellets like these slow quickly to terminal velocity and don't do damage when raining down.
