Tektites: Origins of Glass from Outer Space

2/19/2010 08:31:00 PM ·

Stickman fills us in on the new theory of the origins of glass from outer space and beyond.

It used to be thought that tektites were ‘from the moon’ but this theory has been more-or-less ruled improbable. Between the 1950s and 1990s it was theorized by NASA specialists that tektites were impact ejecta from a prominent lunar impact site called the Rosse formation, on the near-side and brilliant lunar crater Tycho. While more facts about tektites have made this unlikely, the lunar-impact theory is not entire ruled out. Remaining was the second major theory; the meteorite impact theory which has its own merits and problems. Both theories speak to the fact that tektites were formed ‘in outer space.’ That much is not in doubt. Read more about Tektites
