Hey, Space Placers!
The above video gives you an idea of the hell on Earth that happened 65-66 million years ago when a 6-mile wide bolide (asteroid or comet) came crashing into our planet.
There will be an excellent TV show about that day and its aftermath this Wednesday on NOVA PBS. Check your local listings for PBS at 9 PM local time.
Read this article for more background information.
We have to watch the skies for future impact threats because it is only a matter of time until we get another Chelyabinsk or Tunguska bolide event.
