This talk detailed the story of how 26 scientists from 18 institutions around the world followed multiple trails of evidence to uncover one of the greatest catastrophes ever to befall the human race. The scientists propose that an enormous object from space, most likely a highly fragmented comet, exploded over the Northern Hemisphere 12,900 years ago, producing massive detonations with more combined force than all the world's nuclear weapons.
In the aftermath, wide areas of North America and Western Europe were dusted with microscopic diamonds, magnetic spherules, iridium, black carbon, and fullerenes filled with helium-3. Millions of animals perished, and large animal species were pushed into extinction -- mammoths, mastodons, American camels, American horses, and saber-toothed tigers. After having been around for millions of years, those animals were gone in a geologic heartbeat.
