At the bottom of Kaali meteorite crater on Saarema island, Estonia
Estonia

This is the largest in the group of 8 craters and it measures 110 meters in diameter and contains a small lake (known as Kaali järv (Lake Kaali). The incoming meteor cluster had an estimated impact velocity of between 10 and 20 km/s - with a total mass of between 20 and 80 metric tonnes.


At the altitude of 5-10 km, the meteorite broke into pieces and fell to the Earth in fragments - the greatest of which produced a crater with a diameter of 110 m, 22 m deep. Kaali lake exists in the bottom of this crater.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
