The resulting high temperature air-blast could possibly give the necessary heat to melt the glass and yet not leave an impact crater, though supporters of this scenario are driven to increasingly esoteric models in order to generate sufficient heat to create the estimated tonnage of LDG lying in the desert.

Poupeau, A. But I wondered. Raman spectra recorded from the dark streaks are featureless and confirm that no crystalline phase is present in the bands. Monumental work on the subject, first published in Hebrew in and in English in a translation of the revised Hebrew edition of There are three good maps, two of which fold out, and there are some good black and white photographs which were taking by Harding-King showing people and places, with explanatory captions.
