Dinosaurs really wiped out by an asteroid?
Dinosaurs are not here with us anymore, they’ve already extinct from the face of this planet. But, are they really extinct? Probably, NO! They are still living in our imaginations and Universe is very much confused; who the hell killed dinosaurs?
Is it really possible to kill those giant creatures? Obviously, NO!
What We Know!
Well, we all are very much familiar about the asteroid collision theory. This theory clearly points towards the death of dinosaurs at the end of the cretaceous period to a bolide impact (an extremely bright meteor that explodes in the atmosphere), assumed to have befallen roughly 66 million years ago.
Proof advocates that the 5-15 kilometer rock hit the locale of what is the Yucatan peninsula today is, and elicited a huge extinction event, either directly due to its effect, or indirectly due to the subsequent ups and downs in earth’s atmosphere.
This theory is now being re-examined due to a new exploration that point towards the occurrence of a twofold devastation.
And, what really happened!
The research conducted by Berkeley Geologists has put a tiny twist to the asteroid collision theory. For years, researchers were mindful of the volcanism that was befalling in India during the same time period, which blown out lava across a region known as DECCAN TRAPS.
The preliminary occurrence of the Deccan Traps creation specified that; Berkeley theory is inappropriate because the flood of lava seemed to have happened long before the impact.
However, the new evidence has discovered the most precise dates yet, giving birth to the theory that asteroid effect could have altered the volcano’s plumbing system, hastening the explosions for hundreds of thousands of years to come.
The zenith of these events is believed to have masked the planet with dust and hazes, eventually triggering an enormous change in the climate.
Long-term explosions would also have resulted in the deferred retrieval of life for 500,000 years after end of the Cretaceous and the commencement of the Tertiary period (K-T boundary), in the course of which many organisms seemed to have vanished from the fossil record.
Although, these theories provide a clear picture of what would have really happened, but it doesn’t inevitably impute the disappearance of the dinosaurs to one preliminary cause.
