The Chicxulub impact, known as the Chicxulub crater, was formed by an asteroid that collided with the Yucatan Peninsula located in Mexico 65.5 million years ago. The asteroid was said to hold the same energy as 100 million atomic bombs which precipitated an incident that destroyed the dinosaurs and nearly all life on Earth, leaving the atmosphere inhabitable for centuries. What is an Asteroid? Asteroids are pieces of rocks that aren't called planets based on the how small they are. The asteroids are orbiting around the sun mainly in what we call the asteroid belt - an area between the orbit of Mars and Jupiter.
The dinosaur extinction theory – a large asteroid impact and a giant volcanic eruption at the end of cretaceous – also supports that dinosaurs were cold blooded, when the dust due to the meteorite covered the earth, then the sun light could not penetrate the smoke and dust, thus sunlight did not enter the earth for many years, this lead to the drop in temperature on the land, as dinosaurs were cold blooded they could not raise their body temperature without sunlight and hence were
De-Extinction, a interesting topic that most people don’t have an opinion on. De-extinction is a process which uses the DNA of extinct animals and use a surrogate mother and father to bring back an extinct animal. Scientists are working on ways to bring back animals such as wooly mammoths and maybe even dinosaurs. This is a very hopeful topic from different points of view, and a very scary topic from others. Also, some scientists think it’s impossible for certain animals and not for others.
“The team also found two minerals made of iron and sulfur, gregite and pyrrhotite, that are common byproducts of terrestrial bacteria and other microbes. This mineral combination is almost never seen inside terrestrial rocks unless life has been there.” (Robert Naeye). Finally, they found more remains of martian microbes that were fossilized. From all of this information, some scientist have concluded that there has been life on Mars at some point, not necessarily at the present, or in intelligent lifeforms like humans, but still
However, those who believe that mountains and higher latitudes had ice covers, and dinosaur fossils have been found there, says it is impossible for an ectotherms to survive in such cold climate. The likes of these people also tend to believe that dinosaurs perished during the ice age mainly due to lack of food rather than freezing temperatures. Below are some points taken from journals in support of either concept: 1. BONE EVIDENCES: Extensive studies have been done on fossil records and in a
In 2003, scientists accomplished a feat straight out of science fiction: the cloning of the extinct Pyrenean ibex. However, the resulting clone died soon after its birth due to a lung defect. If a clone of an extinct animal that had died out only three years beforehand could not survive, is there any possibility of a real Jurassic Park? Because no dinosaurs are around to produce offspring, cloning is the only way to create a viable dinosaur embryo. Clones require a somatic cell nucleus and a fertilized egg cell sans nucleus.
There are a lot of theories that were irrecoverable as the conspiracy by the society because they are too unconventional to believe, and very shocking and shameful issues that are very hard to comprehend. However, this theory circulated the news world quickly because it sounds very bizarre. At the same time, most people immediately denounce any conspiracy theory as fake … and sometimes as unpatriotic or just plain ridiculous. For many, conspiracy theories are just man nature. Not everyone is reliable, diligent and forthcoming with their motives.
He added that Einstein’s theory of relativity abided by the rule and it was not surprising to him that it was confirmed with Eddington’s observations, but not Freud’s, thereby incurring the tag of non-science. When Freud encountered the objection that not all dreams were
