why Inca engineers Chose Those Hollows to Build Circular Platforms in Moray Terraces.

In the years 60 of the twentieth century. In conclusion, archaeologists and geologists affirm that it was a huge crater caused by the impact of a meteorite.

However this theory did not prosper until the beginning of the 21st century when astronomer Cusquenian Edwin Salazar resurrected it – previous analyses and scientific evaluations – in his famous book Inca Astronomy.

“Most meteorites are of the chondrite type. And are formed by lithic elements that when entering the terrestrial atmosphere are sublimated and if they are massive they reach the terrestrial surface in a fragmented way.

These impacts almost always spread in relatively small areas as in Moray. The distance between the largest impact and the built area of Andenes is approximately one kilometer “adds Salazar, founding member and scientific director of the Planetarium Cusco.

A conclusive test is that the central point of all the “cones or funnels” of Moray is eccentric and has orientations according to an axis that goes from NE to SO, with an angle of a drop of 48 degrees, an unmistakable sign that all the impacts by objects that fell from the space following the same trajectory.
