Dinosaurs could be still ruling the earth, had the asteroid missed its timing
Dinosaurs could be still ruling the earth has the asteroid missed its timing 66 million years ago. Researchers believe that if the 9-mile wide asteroid had made impact less than a minute before or after it did, it likely would have crashed into the much deeper Atlantic or Pacific oceans, and not in the Gulf of Mexico, where shallower waters resulted in a massive, dense cloud of vaporized sulfur that wiped out the dinosaurs.
