  1. So they know it hit Scotland (well, wasn’t Scotland until after the Irish tribe of Scotti invaded it) but don’t know where?

    Is this modern science?
    We know it happened and it hit this big place but we don’t know where?

  2. As the bits were found on Skye, I’d say the answer is: Skye.

    “vanadium-rich and niobium-rich osbornite….have never been found on Earth” – Have now.

    I’ve been to Glasgow.
    The architecture was better in Coventry a week after the Germans bombed the city in a major raid.

  4. Seems reasonable to me.

    The lava flow containing bits of the meteor was found on the Isle of Skye, where the lava flow originated is not known. As man has existed for ~160,000 years, no records exist from 60 Million years ago.

    What was the Thames like 60M years ago?

    Sixty million years ago. Scotland. Oh my sides. I appreciate modern scientific ideas take a while to penetrate the average journalist’s skull but plate tectonics has been a pretty well-attested theory for about sixty years now.
