A giant geological structure over 140 kilometres in diameter was discovered in remote northwest Australia, which is thought to be the result of an asteroid impact that could have happened over 300 million years ago. The crater could be the largest of its kind discovered, possibly matching the size of the famous Vredefort crater in South Africa, the largest known impact crater on Earth. Scientists are now researching further to determine when the impact occurred and its exact size.
