Imagine if a comet or asteroid from space hit the Earth!
An example of such an event in was in Siberia, Russia about 100 years ago, at about 7.15am on June 30th 1908. Its impact explosion was equivalent to about one thousand times that of the atomic bomb dropped by the US on Hiroshima, Japan, at the end of the Second World War!
Have I got your attention now? Thank goodness it landed in the middle of a wilderness; what if that had been New York? The impact destroyed about eighty million trees: an area of about two thousand square kilometres.
Some scientists believe it to have been a fragment of a comet but as it vaporised on impact we can never really know.
Another thing that scientists (in this case archaeologists) are not sure about is the reason for the construction of Stonehenge: the astonishing stone circle monument in Wiltshire, England. Let us not forget that while there are many theories as to the meaning and reason behind the construction of Stonehenge none of them have been conclusively proven as true.
So it was a mystery, that is until Joshua found out the terrifying truth….
