About 50,000 years ago, a piece of space iron crashed into today's Arizona desert at speeds of up to 18 km / s. Today, there is a beautiful circular impact crater with a diameter of about 1.2 km and a depth of 180 m. Good accessibility, visual phenomena associated with impacts of space bodies and a perfect information center built on its edge make it a great tourist attraction.
