Andromeda strain, anyone
Neat. Illnesses from beyond!
Tiberium! At last! All hail the great green crystal!
PEACE THROUGH POWER!
I've been trying to warn the planet's population about the space penguins for ages. I even spread the word down the local pub.
This is the **** that happens when you don't believe me, pansies. Now face the consequences of beaked oppression.
That's... A really odd story, I never thought that would ever be possible.
I was trying to remember the name of that book the other day! Thanks Yeah this does sound a bit like it to be honest. If it is some kind of bacteria or virus I'm suprised that it would be able to survive the extreme temperatures the meteor would have reached, or be able to survive in both the outher atmosphere/space and at ground level...
Or, it's possible that the meteor impact cracked the mountain down to a layer of geyser-like activity, and it's ammonia and whatever else that's giving people headaches, etcetera. Especially considering the boiling water bit, that's my guess.
woof there are bacterias in the north pole and inside vulcanos so it's very likely that are are some bacterias that would survive in outer space
Give him a cookie. A meteorite may land with a fair bit of heat, but it wouldn't boil a pocket of water for more than a few minutes. From that and the fumes it looks like it triggered some volcanic activity.
Good job it didn't hit Jellystone.
(but my thought exactly)
The invasion has begun. Nobody is safe...
Shame it didnt land near the Tibre River, which is what the green crystal is called Tiberium, still, i like the idea.
When that thing goes off, i can only say one thing to those who are near it. RUN!!!!!!!!!!!
While I doubt that a meteorite that small could trigger Yellowstone (Steamboat geyser's crater is that big, and it hasn't set off the whole thing), pegging Yellowstone with a meteorite big enough to set it off would be a Very Bad Thing. Scientists go to Greenland to find ash from the last time it went off (that's where the purest deposits are), so that should say something about the explosive power of the area. Depending on which way prevailing winds are blowing at the time, several meters of ash could bury half the north american continent. - start running, and don't forget your dust masks.
Interesting. And I just started reading War of The Worlds too...
No!! Its named after Emperor Tiberius...you're no true brotherhood member...
I think a big alien must have landed here and had a dump when he could not find a toilet on the intergalatic highway!
Quite scary though. I wonder what microbes from space get into our lungs?
"Increasingly we think that people witnessed a fireball, which are not uncommon, went off to investigate and found a lake of sedimentary deposit, which may be full of smelly, methane rich organic matter," said Dr Caroline Smith, a meteorite expert at the London-based Natural History Museum.
