Scientist Say Killer Asteroid Hit Earth

Researchers are looking at the likelihood of a second asteroid impacting Earth.

A smaller crater that was just recently found in the water is connected to the inquiry.

Long held theory among scientists holds that a sizable asteroid struck Earth close to Mexico's Yucat√°n Peninsula 66 million years ago.

According to their calculations, the impact's force was equivalent to around 10 billion nuclear bombs.

The strike, or impact, is said to have sparked several wildfires, large ocean waves, or tsunamis, and numerous earthquakes.

. Additionally, according to scientists, the incident resulted in a chemical release into the atmosphere that produced a significant cooling.

Over 70% of plant and animal life is said to have vanished as a result of the climate change.
