Asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs was as powerful as 10 billion atomic bombs, new research finds.
'Not all the dinosaurs died that day, but many dinosaurs did.'Scientists have found hard evidence in massive chunks of rocks that the asteroid that doomed the dinosaurs was powerful enough to trigger wildfires, tsunamis and blast so much dust into the atmosphere that it blocked out the sun -- and they estimate the impact was as powerful as 10 billion atomic bombs of the same sized used in World War II. The impact created an inferno, enough to scorch plants thousands of miles away, followed by cooling due to all the dust being thrown into the air. "We fried them and then we froze them," Sean Gulick, a research professor at the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics (UTIG), said in a statement announcing their findings."Not all the dinosaurs died that day, but many dinosaurs did." More than two dozens international scientists contributed to the new research published Monday in the paper the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The study looked at hundreds of feet of rocks from from the impact crater in the Gulf of Mexico that were created within the first day that the massive asteroid struck Earth. "It's an expanded record of events that we were able to recover from within ground zero,” Gulick added."It tells us about impact processes from an eyewitness location." Researchers said that studying the rocks from the impact zone shed new light on the longer-lasting effects of the asteroid impact that wiped out 75% of life on the planet. One of their biggest findings was that there was no sulfur in the core of the asteroid impact zone, but the area surrounding the crater was full of sulfur-rich rocks, researchers said in a statement. The lack of sulfur at the core supports a theory that the impact alone of the asteroid instantly vaporized sulfur minerals at the site, releasing them into the atmosphere, blocking sunlight and causing a global cooling. While the impact of the asteroid was massive,"the real killer has got to be atmospheric," according to Gulick. "The only way you get a global mass extinction like this is an atmospheric effect," he added. Read more: ABC News
another joke. unproven theory passed off as fact And that AOC-hit piece you aired for GOP terrorists could do worse! Even get someone hurt! Why do I feel like ABC just sent me to 7th grade all over again? 🤔 Fake scientists. How did they know that? Only the almighty God knows what wiped out the dinosaurs.
Fake news Did Bernie tell you that He was an I witness right BoycottABC abc The coup that almost destroyed the Republic is being uncovered. Where are you? Get some focus on real news.
CNN Poll: 6 in 10 say Trump does not deserve a second termSix in 10 Americans say President Donald Trump does not deserve to be reelected, according to a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS, and more now say he's doing a poor job than a good one of keeping important campaign promises. This means 4 out of 10 do. What the HELL is wrong with them? Question: Is it 6/10 of Americans, or is it 6/10 of those very special Americans that CNN has chosen to ask that question? There is massive difference between the two! Yes but 9 of 10 electoral votes say he will.
Was that AOC’s fault too? BoycottABC is that a lot Will an asteroid wipe out the human race? Wow The next one will be here when? Like 10,000,000,000 atomic bombs! And the earth recovered. Kinda makes you respect the earth even more. Humans need some perspective. Love how ‘scientist’ throw around huge numbers. ‘Inhabitable planet found, 253 thousand light years away’. ‘The earth is 350 Billion years old’. Just speculative garbage, that no one can ever verify how accurate or wildly inaccurate it really is. Just attention seeking nerds.
a big bang theory🤣 So what are we worried about? Both major powers have less than 10,000 combined. We need another one of those and fast! The dopey bastard's that vote DemoCunt and RepubliCant have destroyed this country. Politics has made everyone mentally ill. PLEASE hurry up and end this nonsense already haha

There goes you’re climate change argument... aksluicy WOW!!! amandamayet94 Or maybe it was just an atomic bomb by an advanced race, to make way for humans... We don't need an asteroid to destroy us. We have Mr. Trump.... CBCAdrianH This brings to mind Samantha Bee calling Trump 'The asteroid that destroyed the party of dinosaurs' 😅
Who's to say that it couldn't happen again and wipe out mankind?! Reading a book and the author insists the meteors that have hit earth disintegrated a microsecond before impact and it was the propulsion’s force that created the craters. Had never heard the before. That's lovely 🙄
Kevin Hart Released From Hospital 10 Days After Violent Car CrashComedian is said to now be recovering in a rehabilitation facility Wishing Kevin a speedy recovery ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 💓💓💓 Lets leave the guy alone to recover.
Dopeness Science !!!!! Crazy! This can happen Again Wow it had to be to eliminate a Mass Race of Beasts or Dinosaurs.......... But would one stop a hurricane? And soon enough Man will destroy him self over greed. & this will trigger a new arms race 🤦♂️ I can’t seem to wrap my head around this theory More likely, a false flag operation by CIA. MKUltra leaks mentioned dinosaur genocide. Also, dosed T-Rex with LSD. Trust me, I’ve seen the documents. Used to be an asset.
Fake. We wouldn’t have earth lol All are myths unless God has proven it to us.
