The new claim about the extinction of dinosaurs, one of the most important events in the history of the world, is just like science fiction movies. Behind the claim is the famous Harvard professor …
The comet that wiped out the dinosaurs traveled 300 billion kilometers before it disappeared!
According to studies, the comet that destroyed the dinosaurs traveled 300 billion kilometers before being rusted to Earth by Jupiter.
Harvard scientists estimate that the 16-kilometer-wide space rock has been wrecked from the Oort Cloud at the edge of the Solar System.
Scientists’ new theories are that it was pulled from its orbit by Jupiter before the Sun split it up and sent pieces to Earth.
Professor Avi Loeb and astrophysicist Amir Siraj, who is shown as Harvard University’s best astronomer, stated that their predictions matched the dates of other major craters on Earth.
Siraj said: “Basically, Jupiter behaves like some kind of pinball machine.”
“Jupiter throws these incoming long-term comets into their orbits, making them very close to the Sun.”
The mystery surrounds the origin of the devastating effect that triggered the extinction of the dinosaurs 66 million years ago.
Previous research has suggested that the crater that emerged off the coast of Mexico, stretching for 149.67 kilometers and descending to a depth of 19.31 kilometers, emerged from the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
But a new study claimed that a significant portion of the dinosaur-killing comet had a Sun-fed structure from the Oort Cloud.
It causes a tidal force
These are debris at the very edge of the Solar System, 299,337,984,000 kilometers away, suspended as comets around the Sun.
Prof Loeb and Mr. Siraj’s calculations suggested that around 20 percent of “long-term comets” became Sun-fed grazers, which is in line with findings from previous research.
Their statistical analysis and gravity simulations showed that they could hit Earth every 250 to 730 million years.
This was ten times more frequent than current estimates and they suggested they matched the dating of other major craters on Earth.
“Our hypothesis predicts that Chicxulub-size craters in other Mexico on Earth are more likely to correspond to an impactor with a more primitive (carbonaceous chondrite) composition than would be expected from traditional main belt asteroids,” the duo said in the article.
Prof Loeb added: “Our article provides a basis for explaining the occurrence of this event.”
“In fact, we suggest that when you break up an object as it approaches the Sun, it can lead to the appropriate event rate and also the kind of dinosaur-killing effect.
Siraj said: “When you have these formations, not the continued melting, this is a fairly small fraction of the total mass, but the comet is so close to the Sun that the Sun feels a stronger gravitational force than the part farther from the Sun, and this causes a tidal force. “
“You get what’s called a tidal distortion event, and so those large comets that actually approach the Sun break up into smaller comets, and basically, there is a possibility that these small comets will crash into the Earth.”
