A recent story by National Geographic highlights how researchers used Google Earth to discover one of the newer craters on Earth; only a few thousand years old.
As Stefan at Ogle Earth notes, the findings of some researchers were recently published in the journal Science, they require a subscription. Fortunately, he was able to grab the coordinates of the crater so you can see it for yourself. Simply fly to 22º 01′ 06″ N 26º 05′ 15″ E or use this KML file to take you there.
Of course, there are hundreds of known craters all across the planet. One of Frank’s oldest posts showcase them, and you can download this KML file to view them all in Google Earth.
