Great Minds: James Hutton, Founder of Geology

When you look at a rock, what do you see? Most of us see it as a rock: gray, brown, perhaps some sparkle. Nothing interesting. But James Hutton, an 18th-century geologist, believed that rocks were not just rocks. Rather, it was the key to Earth’s history, billions of years old that transform and melt It is ground, twisted, and shaped again.

66 million years ago a six-mile-wide asteroid larger than Mount Everest is tall slammed our planet with the force of ten billion atomic bombs, unleashing giant fireballs, crushing tsunamis, continent-shaking earthquakes, and suffocating darkness. This was the cause of the Cretaceous Paleogene extinction event, which drove the dinosaurs extinct almost overnight, or so we thought. Prior to the ascent of the asteroid hypothesis, researchers have proposed other explanations for the dinosaurs' demise. Gluttony, protracted food poisoning, terminal chastity, acute stupidity, even death by boredom. Those fell by the wayside when in 1980 a Nobel prize-winning physicist found iridium, a hard […]

Physical Geology – Introduction: What are Rocks and the Rock Cycle?

>>In the last two videos we talked about minerals. Well, minerals, when they group together, form rocks and there are three types of rocks. Igneous rocks form from molten rock. Think of lava flowing out of a volcano on Hawaii. That's a good example of an igneous rock. A second type of rock is a sedimentary rock, which is composed of particles of rocks or minerals like sand grains on a beach or sand in a river. And then the third type of rock are metamorphic rocks, and these form by high heat, pressure, and chemical change. Now all of […]
