Study Blames Comet Fragments For Dinosaur Extinction
ONE GROUP OF RESEARCHERS SAY A COMET FRAGMENT MAY HAVE BEEN WHAT KILLED OFF THE DINOSAUR
(CNN) – A new theory says a comet could be to blame for killing off dinosaurs on the earth.
For the past few decades, most experts say an asteroid was the culprit. But researchers from the Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts have another theory.
According to their findings, it’s possible an icy comet flew too close to the sun, sending a fragment crashing down to the earth, bringing an end to the dinosaurs.
However, the idea is already drawing some skepticism, with one Colorado-based scientist saying the research has, “several intrinsic problems.”
