When the dinosaur-killing asteroid collided with Earth more than 65 million years ago, it did not go gently into that good night. Rather, it blasted a nearly mile-high tsunami through the Gulf of Mexico that caused chaos throughout the world’s oceans, new research finds.
The 9-mile-across (14 kilometers) space rock, known as the Chicxulub asteroid, caused so much destruction, it’s no wonder the asteroid ended the dinosaur age, leading to the so-called Cretaceous-Paleogene (K-Pg) extinction.
