Double meteorite strike 'killed dinosaurs' ?

Postby DarkUFO on Sun Aug 29, 2010 11:27 am

A new study has suggested that the dinosaurs were wiped out by not one but two massive meteorite impacts.

The discovery of a huge impact site in the Gulf of Mexico has been joined by that of a second site in Ukraine with the possibility of further impacts that together would have spelled the demise of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.

The dinosaurs were wiped out 65 million years ago by at least two meteorite impacts, rather than a single strike, a new study suggests. Previously, scientists had identified a huge impact crater in the Gulf of Mexico as the event that spelled doom for the dinosaurs.
