Iibhiliyoni Ezimbini Zeminyaka Eyadlulayo

Malunga neminyaka ezibhiliyoni ezimbini eyadlulayo, imeteorite enomlinganiselo ongange Table Mountain yathwaxa umhlaba kufutshane nalapho idolophu yase Vredefort ime khona namahlanje, emntla Free State. Esi sithonga singama 1 000-Mt blast sanyibilikisa ama 70 ㎦ elitye. Endaweni yalo kwashiyeka icrator emalunga nama 380 km ububanzi. Kodwa ke, konke oku sele kukhukulisekile ngoku. Sele kushiyeke nje idome yelitye le granite elalidaleke ngethuba icrust yomhlaba izama ukubuyela esimweni sayo. Ezi Concentric zaringe zee nduli, ziphakathi kwe Vredefort kunye ne Parys, ziyinxalenye ye World Heritage Site.
