Marine fossils

êèå ëèëèè), ðàêóøêèSpecial containment procedures: SCP-477 must be in the building with climate control, labelled as Area 44. The building was built using only metal and wood, no stone or concrete building materials. Externally it looks like a hangar for storage of equipment non-existent career, but in fact there are numerous laboratories, which are essential for learning and maintenance of SCP-477. Samples of sedimentary rocks or concrete items allowed to be taken out for limits of complex content, only after grinding and mixing with acidic clay slurry to dissolve the entire fossil material was found.

Individuals of SCP-477, appeared outside the Zone 44 must be immediately captured and returned to the complex, or destroyed by shredding and acid treatment of the substrate carrier.

Description: a Thin layer of Cambrian slate, covering an area of about 2 km2 on the plateau, Mongolia. Deposits rich in fossils preserved in water, collectively designated as SCP-477. These fossils are remarkable for both its diversity and the fact that they are able to move and imitate life, floating in the thick stone as if it was the ocean that they lived 520 million years ago.

Individuals of SCP-477 are able to move through all tested types of sedimentary rocks, with no visible resistance. In atomistic main threat to the successful maintenance, as the revived fossil escaped into another geological formation that is very difficult to catch (not eliminated, and reproduction of escaped, see the incident 477-01). They are unable to leave their stone habitats for the movement in an aqueous or gaseous medium and can’t pass through soil, sand, clay and other porous substrates. Continue reading

Another ancient street has been discovered by the archaeologists in charge

On the territory of the demolished hotel “Russia” found another old street, presumably of the XII century, according to the Institute of archaeology RAS.

During excavations in Zaryadye. where a unique landscape Park, scientists have discovered the oldest street of Moscow Posad – outside Great. It originated at a very early stage of development of the city – perhaps as early as the XII century.

Scientists are starting the search in the Gulf of Mexico the remains of the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs

A group of geologists proceed with installation of the drilling rig, which will be located in the Gulf of Mexico. Experts hope to find the remains of the asteroid, 65 million years ago caused the death of the dinosaurs.

This writes the online edition of Science. According to the official version, at the end of the Cretaceous period fell to Earth 10-kilometer asteroid. It is believed that he collapsed on the territory of modern South of Mexico. He left behind a 18-kilometer crater with a depth of 20 km.

She was flooded by the ocean. Scientists believe that the force of the explosion of the asteroid was comparable to the power of the explosion of hundreds of thousands of nuclear bomu capacity of 240 million megatons of TNT.

The falling asteroid caused a huge tsunami and raised a cloud of dust that hid the planet’s surface from the Sun for decades. This has led to the death of plants and animals weighing more than 25 kg.

The search will be conducted by geologists of the British geological survey and their colleagues from the United States. Underwater excavations will spend in the crater of Chicxulub, which appeared after the fall of the asteroid. Continue reading
