Scientists first identified this impact in 1980 from the worldwide layer of sediment deposited from the dust cloud that enveloped the planet after the impact. this component of meteorites is easily identified.

4. Impacts by meteorites represent one mechanism that could cause global catastrophes and seriously influence the evolution of life all over the planet. careful study shows that this risk is quite small. In 1991 the United States Congress asked NASA to investigate the hazard posed today by large impacts on Earth. Yet an equally important criterion is the ability of a species to survive random global ecological catastrophes due to impacts. Following each mass extinction. To support the claim that the mass extinction at the end of the Cretaceous is the best-documented of the dozen or so mass extinctions in the geological record B. how did scientists determine that a large meteorite had impacted Earth? A. assume D. claim B. A large amount of dust blocked sunlight from Earth. extending C. the majority of all extinctions of species may be due to such impacts.

B. there is a sudden evolutionary burst as new species develop to fill the ecological niches opened by the event. . why does the author include the information that dinosaurs had flourished for tens of millions of years and then suddenly disappeared?

Incorrect choices change the meaning in important ways or leave out essential information. D. The commission entrusted with tackling the problem of waste disposal was aware that the dangers posed by radioactive .C 4.

Sebeok suggested the only possible solution was the formation of a committee of guardians of knowledge. Those outside the priesthood would be kept away by a combination of rituals and legends designed to warn off intruders. Given this restriction. This is the problem of social exclusiveness brought about through possession of vital knowledge. 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. We cannot be sure that society won’t have slipped backward into an age of barbarism due to any of several catastrophic events. Sebeok’s group proposed a “relay system” in which information is passed on over relatively short periods of time. Only the initiated atomic priesthood of experts would have the scientific knowledge to fully understand the danger. 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. Its task would be to dedicate itself to maintaining and passing the knowledge of the whereabouts and dangers of the nuclear waste deposits. electricity supplies might not be available in 300 generations. So. 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. In the event of global catastrophe. Critics point out that the atomic priesthood could use its secret knowledge to control those who are scientifically ignorant. fissures . In this way information could be relayed into the future and avoid the possibility of physical degradation. But the belief in constant technological advancement is based on our perceptions of advances made throughout history and prehistory. Furthermore. however. just three generations ahead. human society in the distant future may be well aware of the hazards of radiation.emissions must be communicated to our descendants of at least 10.000 years hence. 1. any message indicated to future reception and decipherment must be as universally understandable as possible. Besides. 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. 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. cavities D. nor that it could survive with its original meaning intact. Even computers that might carry the message cannot be expected to endure long enough. So the task became one of finding a way to tell future societies about the risk posed by these deadly deposits. 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. This proposal has been criticized because of the possibility of a break in continuity of the original message. A. To counterbalance this possibility. partitions B. Technological advances may one day provide the solutions to this dilemma. The second law of thermodynamics shows that all material disintegrates over time. there is no guarantee that any warning or sanction passed on for millennia would be obeyed. A second defect is more difficult to dismiss. 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.
