Dinosaur "graveyard" shows what happens when an asteroid hit the Earth apocalypse


First with the & # 39 there was a terrible earthquake, before glowing glass balls fell from the sky and huge tsunami delivered a fatal blow to any living creature, that miraculously survived this pressure.

Scientists have discovered a horrific new details of what happened that day a giant asteroid hit the Earth and caused a mass extinction wiped out the dinosaurs.

The researchers found "smoking-gun evidence" Dean-end of the world after the disclosure of "Killing Fields", containing fish body, insects, mammals and even triceratops, whose last moments came just after an asteroid crashed into the ground.

Until now, the true horror moments after the cataclysm has not remained lost in time, because we never really failed to find a "death bed", containing the remains of something killed in ancient apocalypse.

"It's hard not to suffocate and captured this theme, said paleontologist Robert DePalma, who found in a cemetery in a place called Hell Creek, in the Dakotas.

"We are looking at the moment-by-moment recording of one of the most significant events in the history of Earth impact. No other site does not record exactly true. And this particular event linked directly to all of us – every mammal on Earth, actually. Because it is, in fact, where we have inherited the planet.

"Nothing was the same after this blow. It has become a planet of mammals, not dinosaurs planet.

"As human beings, we have evolved from a line that just survived the ash that was once glorious kingdom of the dinosaurs. And we are the only species on the planet that has ever been able to learn from such an event for the benefit of themselves and any other organism in our world.

The space rock, which made for a dinosaur called the Chicxulub impactor and is believed to have up to 50 miles in width.

Analysis of the remains of creatures in Hell Creek deathbed shows what happened when he hit.

First, a huge earthquake region – despite the fact that there were thousands of miles away from the impact zone.

Thereafter, 5 mm "," balls of superheated glass created by the explosion fell, knocking the creature and clogging their gills, so they can not breathe.

This bombardment also believe that caused wildfires around the world.

"Can you imagine standing there to be pelted with the glass balls. They could have killed you, "said Mark Richards, University of California professor emeritus of earth and planetary science, who worked on the study.

The tsunami then washed over the world, burying and preserving the remains of creatures scored after impact.

Asteroid Apocalypse sowed death by a radius of thousands of miles in the moments after the space rock hit, but gave up so much in the air of dust and debris that blocked it from the sun and is likely to cause the death of the dinosaurs.

This is known as the Cretaceous-Paleogene (K-Pg) extinction event, or borders K-Pg. This happened 66 million years ago and led to a mass extinction that wiped out 75% of life on Earth.

"This is the first major gathering of the mass death of organisms who are found associated with the K-T International, added DePalma.

"In no other boundary alignment of the K-T in the world can you find such a collection consisting of a large number of species of organisms, different ages and different stages of life, all of whom died at the same time, on the same day.
