* There are pictures and text about some of the amazing rock and mineral types that are created ONLY by hypervelocity impacts.

* A sectional graphic shows how craters are formed when the meteorite/ asteroid/ comet hits the ground, and the types of crater they produce.

* A section is devoted to Gene Shoemaker, considered to be the "father of impact science."

* A handy timeline graph on the bottom of the poster shows the dating of 6 extinction events and their titles.

* The poster comes with a 4 page in-color information sheet with photos of meteorites and interesting review questions and answers.
