Creater behind dinosaur extinction mapped

Creater behind dinosaur extinction mapped
Scientists have for the first time created a detailed map of the underwater creater that possibly led to the extinction of dinosaurs about 65 million years ago. About 65 million years back, an asteroid or comet crashed into a shallow sea near what is now the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, researchers said. The resulting caused the extinction of many land plants and large animals, including most of the dinosaurs, they said. Researchers from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) have found evidence that remnants from this devastating impact are exposed along the Campeche Escarpment-an immense underwater cliff in the southern Gulf of Mexico.
