Started[edit]

This was started by request] but my German is terrible and English language sources are thin so it definitely needs help StarM 05:43, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

Broken? Image[edit]

I'm not sure the initial image is deleted, so much as not linkable/correctly linked. If you go to de:Rieskrater-Museum you'll see it shows. I'm just not certain how to properly format a link through to the German wikipedia. I don't do much with images to know how to fix it StarM 01:22, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

The image wasn't on Commons, User:Dmadeo transfered it --Chris.urs-o (talk) 08:45, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
I didnt know how to link to the German version either, so I moved it to commons. Interesting museum. dm (talk) 20:17, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks! That was part of my goal in including the info about the image - someone would know what to do with it. dm, as usual, a whiz. StarM 20:57, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

Here are a few more sources I located in my research for anyone who wants to expand for DYK or other uses:

  • Flyer about the Geopark PDF - museum is included but as it's a PDF google translate isn't a help
    • It's short anyway, I think that german national geoparks are just political entities for the geotourism.
  • Nordlingen official page?
    • Overview of both references: An impact from a 1 km diameter stony meteorite at c. 20 km/s gave origin to the Ries crater c. 14.5 mio. years ago. After one minute there was a 12 km diameter primary crater, data: 4,500 m (depth), 4-5 mio. bar (pressure), 10,000-30,000°C, spreading moldavite (a tektite) 200-450 km away. The meteorite and the rock below melted and evaporated. The earthquake resulted in a 25 km diameter end crater covered with a suevite deposit. The church tower is built with suevite. Another reference tells that the impact hit a local graphite deposit, so some building material in the city may contain tiny diamonds as well as coesite and stishovite. It's a special museum, as the list of confirmed impact craters is short (Impact crater#Impact craters on Earth). --Chris.urs-o (talk) 10:46, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Book: Das Rieskrater-Museum Nördlingen by Michael Schieber & Gisela Pösges google books (no ebook)
