Vredefort dome - the place of the largest impact on Planet Earth - the Awesome World of Things

The Vredefort dome situated in the Free State province of South Africa is the largest verified impact crater on Earth. It is estimated that an asteroid measuring 5 to 10 km in diameter created a crater in the region of 250 to 300 km with up to 70 cubic kilometres of rock being vaporised in the impact. This equates to the entire world's current nuclear arsenal being exploded in one go.
