Such impacts continue to pose a natural hazard to life on Earth. starting widespread fires that must have consumed most terrestrial forest sand grassland. this component of meteorites is easily identified.

Presumably. Meteorite Impact and Dinosaur Extinction There is increasing evidence that the impacts of meteorites have had important effects on Earth. when as many as half the species on the planet became extinct. Then.B 6. as can be determined by measuring the thickness of the sediment layer formed when this dust settled to the surface. the Cretaceous mass extinction has always intrigued paleontologists because it marks the end of the age of the dinosaurs. it is clear that impacts of this size do occur and that their results can be catastrophic.

Yet an equally important criterion is the ability of a species to survive random global ecological catastrophes due to impacts. C. Following each mass extinction. why does the author include the information that dinosaurs had flourished for tens of millions of years and then suddenly disappeared? A.

They discovered a large crater in the Yucatán region of Mexico. destroying D. D. They found a unique layer of sediment worldwide. According to paragraph 3. claim B. In 1991 the United States Congress asked NASA to investigate the hazard posed today by large impacts on Earth. there is a sudden evolutionary burst as new species develop to fill the ecological niches opened by the event. The group conducting the study concluded from a detailed analysis that impacts from meteorites can indeed be hazardous. They were alerted by archaeologists who had been excavating in the Yucatán region. subject to random violent events that were unsuspected a few decades ago. B. the majority of all extinctions of species may be due to such impacts. A large amount of dust blocked sunlight from Earth. Which of the following can be inferred from paragraph 3 about the location of the meteorite impact in Mexico? A. careful study shows that this risk is quite small. . model C.

The second law of thermodynamics shows that all material disintegrates over time. cavities D. fissures . We cannot be sure that society won’t have slipped backward into an age of barbarism due to any of several catastrophic events. A second defect is more difficult to dismiss. Furthermore. This proposal has been criticized because of the possibility of a break in continuity of the original message. Only the initiated atomic priesthood of experts would have the scientific knowledge to fully understand the danger.000 years hence. Of course. Its task would be to dedicate itself to maintaining and passing the knowledge of the whereabouts and dangers of the nuclear waste deposits. The problem then becomes how to inform our descendants that they must avoid areas of potential radioactive seepage given that they may not understand any currently existing language and may have no historical or cultural memory. This so-called atomic priesthood would be entrusted with keeping knowledge of this tradition alive through millennia and developing the tradition into a kind of mythical taboo forbidding people to tamper in a way with the nuclear waste sites. Critics point out that the atomic priesthood could use its secret knowledge to control those who are scientifically ignorant. To counterbalance this possibility. electricity supplies might not be available in 300 generations. human society in the distant future may be well aware of the hazards of radiation. it is quite possible that humans of the distant future will be on the far side of a broken link of communication and technological understanding.emissions must be communicated to our descendants of at least 10. So the task became one of finding a way to tell future societies about the risk posed by these deadly deposits. nor that it could survive with its original meaning intact. 1. So. there is no guarantee that any warning or sanction passed on for millennia would be obeyed. Other media storage methods were considered and rejected for similar reasons. In the event of global catastrophe. whether the result of nature such as the onset of a new ice age or perhaps mankind’s failure to solve the scourges of war and pollution. The word "chambers" in the passage is closest in meaning to ________ . A. This is the problem of social exclusiveness brought about through possession of vital knowledge. Even computers that might carry the message cannot be expected to endure long enough. The task force under the linguist Thomas Sebeok finally agreed that no foolproof way would be found to send a message across so many generations and have it survive physically and be decipherable by a people with few cultural similarities to us. Sebeok suggested the only possible solution was the formation of a committee of guardians of knowledge. Technological advances may one day provide the solutions to this dilemma. But the belief in constant technological advancement is based on our perceptions of advances made throughout history and prehistory. however. just three generations ahead. It was soon realized by the specialists assigned the task of devising the communication system that material in which the message was written might not physically endure the great lengths of time demanded. Those outside the priesthood would be kept away by a combination of rituals and legends designed to warn off intruders. The message then to be renewed and redesigned if necessary for the following three generations and so on over the required time span. In this way information could be relayed into the future and avoid the possibility of physical degradation. Given this restriction. any message indicated to future reception and decipherment must be as universally understandable as possible. openings C. Sebeok’s group proposed a “relay system” in which information is passed on over relatively short periods of time. partitions B. Besides. The establishment of such an association of insiders holding powerful knowledge not available except in mythic form to nonmembers would be a dangerous precedent for future social developments.
