Minute-by-minute-to-minute accounts of the natural disaster that wiped out the dinosaurs, destroyed the Earth

The death of the dinosaurs, and is set out in a detailed timeline, and thanks to the scientists who study the crater from the meteor that killed them.

A team led by Sean Gulick of the University of Texas at dallas has put together the following series of events that wiped out the creatures that ruled the Earth for 180 million years, in a matter of minutes.

Two days prior to impact

Around 66million years ago, when the asteroid was in the days gone by in the dead of the war, it would have appeared in the light of the Earth as a tiny bright light.


It would not have seemed to be moving, but it would have continued to increase, according to the study, which was published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The nine-metre-wide asteroid named Chicxulub, it will soon crash into the Earth and change the course of history forever.

One hour to go

At this time, the Earth would still be alive with a plethora of creatures both in the sea and on the land.

The dinosaurs, like the Tyrannosaurus rex and the Giganotosaurus, it would have to go on with their day.

However, scientists believe that they would be able to see what appeared to be two Suns in the sky as the asteroid approached.

Two minutes to impact

The asteroid would have flown over the Southern part of the Atlantic ocean.

It would have looked like a ball of fire, which is much brighter than the Sun now, and the burning at 20,000 degrees Centigrade.

For five seconds

The asteroid blast a hole in the Earth’s atmosphere, causing a global super-sonic shock wave.

It was travelling at 45,000 miles an hour at this point, and it will appear as a flash of light.

The Impact

The asteroid smashes into the Earth with a blast that is a billion times stronger than the Hiroshima bomb.

The effect of the shallow waters off the coast of what is now the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico.

This will create a crater that is 100 km wide and 20 km deep.

The asteroid was vaporized, and the sending of the 25trillion of tons of space rock and debris into the atmosphere.

In a minute after the

The melted material is now ground into the atmosphere at speeds of over 100,000 miles per hour.

Some even hit the Moon.

The debris from the newly formed Chicxulub crater, it is now hotter than the Sun’s, and everything in the vicinity in the event of fire.

The dinosaurs in the area would start to boil and burst with steam when the temperature reaches above 300 degrees Celsius.

The other creatures were to be burned immediately.

A massive tsunami hundreds of feet high to form.

Two minutes after the

Forest fires and other large craters formed by pieces of rock from the explosion falls back to the Ground.

The surface of the Earth would have to move some of this section of the creation of the great beings to tumble down.

The smaller early mammals might have been looking for a safe place to take refuge, at this point, and it may have been this, or hiding under rocks.

Three minutes after the

The mighty Tyrannosaurus rexes, 2,000 km to the north of the impact zone to fall by the Earthquake, and smashing their skulls open.

The movement of the sediments, though burial of the dead, beings that would later become the evidence of the disaster.

Five minutes later, the

In North America, a flying dinosaur with a wingspan of up to 36feet, it would have been shot out of the sky due to the glass ‘balls’.

These balls would have been made as the molten rock was thrown into the atmosphere, it begins to fall back down to Earth.

If it forms, it begins to cool, forming a glass-like substance.

30 minutes after the impact

The massive tsunami, which was created earlier hits, coast of 100 miles per hour.

It would put out the fires.

The Chicxulub crater and begins rapidly filling up with sea water and then it rains, the glass and stone at the last end.

Three hours after the impact

The fires would still be burning in North America, however, the temperature would have to cool it on the whole.

The dinosaurs are still alive in the Montana would have had their eardrums ruptured due to an ear-splitting sonic boom.

That would be the sound of an asteroid impact, as it would take about three hours to travel the 2,000 miles to the north.

Four hours later, the impact of

Lightning was happening all over the world, and a further tsunami could have been caused by landslides and Earthquakes.

In Western Europe, and the earthquakes and the fires, it would have been ravaging the country.

Ten o’clock in the after –

In north America, it is now cooler, but the air was filled with smoke from the forest fires.

Herds of triceratops may be dead or dying in the swamps and marshes.

A day later

Grime and dust can stop the Sun from appearing.

This is the first of what scientists have called the Cenozoic, or recent era.

Debris was still flying from the crater.

Clips of it are on their way out to the orbit of the Sun and the amount going to land on Mars, and the moons of Saturn and Jupiter.

All of the microbes present in these files can now be exported from the Earth to outer space.

A week or so after the impact

The sky is so dark, that the plants will not be able to photosynthesis and will begin to die.

This adds up to a great park that has survived the impact, and to begin to starve to death.

All of the animals that have died, causing a devastating impact on the food chain of the animals in the sea and on the land.

After two weeks, the impact of

Avian dinosaur, a close relative of birds, and are showing signs that they will survive the apocalypse.

The ability to fly, it means that they will be able to escape the worst of the areas, it is the loaf of bread is faster than that of large entities, and to better adapt to the new environment.

These survivors are, ultimately, the millions of birds that we know today.

After two months, the impact of

The fire was dead and so the Earth is now cold and dark.

In the darkness of the fabric, it will keep for another two months.

An animal bigger than a dinosaur’s were wiped out.

The atmosphere is full of carbon dioxide, methane, and carbon monoxide.

The acid rain is falling and the world is a lot quieter than it was a couple weeks ago.

The dinosaurs are gone for good

As the dust finally clears and sunshine returns to the earth.

The earth will eventually recover.

However, with the demise of the dinosaurs, it means that the animals have a chance to rule the world.

Soon to be the earliest primates, as well as our own remote ancestors to form.

The asteroid could have been the end for the dinosaurs, but without that, we might not be here today.
