Tens of millions of years ago, Peru had penguins that had 7-inch beaks and stood 5 feet tall!

"Zap Chap!" Peter McCamphill of Coventry, England, survived a lightning strike that burned off his hair, blackened his clothes and tore one of his shoes into pieces!

A meteor exploded over Siberia's Tunguska River on June 30, 1908, unleashing the energy of 1,000 Hiroshima bombs and flattening 770 square miles of forest!

< TASK > Answer the questions.

(1) What kind of penguins lived in Peru tens of millions years ago?

(2) Was Peter killed by the lightning that blacken his clothes?

(3) Compared to Hiroshima bombs, how much energy did the meteor unleash?
