Drilling Into the Chicxulub Crater, Ground Zero of the Dinosaur Extinction - The New York Times

Drilling Into the Chicxulub Crater, Ground Zero of the Dinosaur Extinction - The New York Times:



"Some 66 million years ago an asteroid crashed into the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico, triggering the extinction event that obliterated the dinosaurs and nearly extinguished all life on Earth. It struck with the same energy as 100 million atomic bombs, and left behind a 100-mile-wide scar known today as the Chicxulub crater."
