The asteroid that slammed into the ocean off Mexico 66 million years ago killed off the dinosaurs…
And probably rang the Earth like a bell, triggering volcanic eruptions around the globe that may have contributed to the devastation.
According to researchers of UC Berkeley, the impact may had triggered most of the immense eruptions of lava in India known as the Deccan Traps.
Thus it would explain the weird coincidence between the Deccan Traps eruptions and the impact, which has always cast doubt on the theory that the asteroid was the sole cause of the mass dinosaur extinction.
