The apocalyptic 24 hours after a huge asteroid struck Earth is written into the center of an underwater impact crater.
The study provides the best evidence yet as to what happened 66 million years ago when an asteroid smashed into Earth.
A group of international scientists has just finished collecting samples from the crater formed by the asteroid that is widely blamed for the extinction of the dinosaurs. They believe these could help explain how life on earth recovered after the shock.
A tale of dead dinosaurs and ecological recovery is written in the Gulf of Mexico’s seabed.
