Earth’s first life forms survived a massive bombardment by asteroids that completely remade the planet’s surface around 4.5 billion years ago. Few if any areas escaped impacts powerful enough to force molten magma onto the surface. That’s according to a new reconstruction by Simone Marchi and co-authors, which would explain the lack of rocks on Earth older than the Hadean period. 
Image: An artist’s imagined view of the early Earth, showing a surface pocked by asteroid impacts, resulting in extrusion of magma.

Here’s the artist’s page: Simone Marchi, and two more pictures:

witch king complete!

Oh WOW! I just saw this in my email too and I can hardly believe that this Witch-king of Angmar will soon be hanging on MY WALL! Daria Tesler (the artist who created this) is absolutely divinely brilliant, and she has lots and lots of amazing and very affordable prints available at her site, which is right here. Click on the little house and be ready for wonder! I haven’t been able to show this to my wife yet (I will in 2 hours when I get home) but I know she will love it. Thank you Daria!!!
