Scientists are starting the search in the Gulf of Mexico the remains of the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs

A group of geologists proceed with installation of the drilling rig, which will be located in the Gulf of Mexico. Experts hope to find the remains of the asteroid, 65 million years ago caused the death of the dinosaurs.

This writes the online edition of Science. According to the official version, at the end of the Cretaceous period fell to Earth 10-kilometer asteroid. It is believed that he collapsed on the territory of modern South of Mexico. He left behind a 18-kilometer crater with a depth of 20 km.

She was flooded by the ocean. Scientists believe that the force of the explosion of the asteroid was comparable to the power of the explosion of hundreds of thousands of nuclear bomu capacity of 240 million megatons of TNT.

The falling asteroid caused a huge tsunami and raised a cloud of dust that hid the planet’s surface from the Sun for decades. This has led to the death of plants and animals weighing more than 25 kg.

The search will be conducted by geologists of the British geological survey and their colleagues from the United States. Underwater excavations will spend in the crater of Chicxulub, which appeared after the fall of the asteroid.

Scientists want to find out did the car fall to the ocean acidification and the extinction of ancient creatures.

The remains of the asteroid will be at a depth of a mile beneath the rocks, which were formed over the Chicxulub crater.

Experts hope that will be able to find traces of bacteria that lived in the waters of the world ocean before the cataclysm. It is likely that they were confined under the Earth after the fall of the car.
