The oldest meteor crater in the world is not what it seems

The world’s oldest meteor impact crater is not a crater at all, scientists say of a new study that suggests natural forces have set the giant indentation in Earth’s surface. But the jury is not there yet.

The wannabe crater, known locally as the Maniitsoq structure, is located 55 kilometers southeast of the town of Maniitsoq in GreenlandThe structure has a diameter of about 100 km and was formed about 3 billion years ago, although its origin has been disputed in recent years.
