March 15, 2012 a wide area of white chalk cliffs of Dover Strait hit in the Pas-de-Calais. Tons of open slopes broke away from the rocks near the area known as Bay crabs. One of the employees of the Coast Guard reported that it is necessary to conduct a study area to determine the exact area and volume of collapsed rocks.

The reasons for the incident are not yet known. Presumably, the collapse was due to rain: after the water has been absorbed, it froze and expanded, making

Diamonds — soot from the chimneys of hell Annually from kimberlite pipes in the world produces about 25 tons of technical and gem diamonds in the rough cost of about $ 12 billion. Lives of tens of millions of people in one way or another connected with diamonds: they are looking for them, extract, process, sell. Diamonds are not only to meet the immense human vanity and desire for shiny expensive trinkets. It is estimated that the use of diamond tools more than doubles the economic potential of any developed country. But a simple question: how

Rock on which the theory is based on how 600 million years ago, the ice age ended, actually formed much later and at a temperature so high that no living beings to them could not be connected. This is the conclusion a team of scientists led by researchers at the California Institute of Technology (USA).

Glaciation that covered almost the entire planet (hence the concept of "earth-snow"), interrupted quite suddenly. They say it was due to the
