Scientists have reached the bottom of how giant dinosaurs that ruled the earth ended millions of years ago. Asteroid dust found in a crater in the Gulf of Mexico recently showed that this megalithic space rock had destroyed dinosaurs and 75 percent of life on Earth over 66 million years ago.
Steven Davis, a professor of geochemistry at Bridges University in Brussels, says that studying the dust of the crater revealed that dinosaurs were killed due to a city-sized asteroid hitting the earth millions of years ago.
According to the researchers, with this dust, all the speculation about the elimination of dinosaurs is over. Professor Steven Goderis, who was involved in this research, said, ‘The cycle is now finally over. Earlier in 2016, an international team started collecting samples in a 150-kilometer pit.
After assessing the rock samples, the researchers found that there is a large amount of iridium inside them, which is very rare to find on Earth, but found inside some asteroids. This level of iridium is 30 times higher than normal. Higher levels of iridium caused damage to the organism. It was examined in labs in Austria, Belgium, Japan, USA, based on which scientists came to conclusions.
Scientists have studied geological layer samples in 52 locations around the world to find out the main reasons for the extinction of dinosaurs. Scientists say that a lower amount of sulfur in the rocks has also been detected, while its presence was greater in the surrounding areas of limestone. It is possible that due to the cold weather and acid rain on the global level, other living organisms including dinosaurs living on earth suffered heavy damage.
