Ancient Earth Cores Upthe theory about life after dino-killing asteroid

In the journal Nature scientists have conveyed their surprise that these drilled cores "undermine a theory that utilisability at sites closest to the crater is due to environmental pollutants – such as toxic metals slowest. " triggered by the impact. " First we want to go back to 66 million years ago: The asteroid strike, also known as the Cretaceous-Paleogene …

Dino-killing asteroid crater was almost immediately a cradle of life – BGR

When the asteroid that hit today's Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico reached Earth, it made life incredibly difficult for almost any living thing. Its far-reaching effects have dramatically impacted plant life and destabilized the food chain so that many species could not recover from it. With all this, life near the crater would be expected to be fairly close to zero, …

Life quickly recovered at the impact site of the dino-killing asteroid

An asteroid impact 66 million years ago destroyed life across the planet, but microorganisms recovered rapidly. New research has found evidence of a variety of plankton and other organisms inhabiting the crater, just a few years after plant extinction. The three hairy forms (left) represent species of plankton found inside the crater. The geometric shape (bottom left) is an algae …

A dino-killing asteroid has caused the Earth to heat up for 10,000 years

WASHINGTON: The asteroid Chicchulub, which caused the extinction of dinosaurs, spurred a long era of global warming when it penetrated the Earth 65 million years ago, with a rapid rise in temperature of 5 degrees Celsius, which held about 1. 00,000 years, a study has found. The monumental event is a rare event in which Earth's systems were disturbed at …
