In short, the dust from the asteroid was enriched with helium after being bombarded by the solar wind on its way to Earth. These are cliffs made of sedimentary rock that was once an ancient seabed.
The gray horizontal line in the rock shows where the dust from the asteroid collision fell. However, the unexpected discovery could be relevant for tackling global warming if carbon dioxide emissions are not reduced.
