Tanis Site: The Day the Dinosaur-Killing Asteroid Hit

More marvelous discoveries about the tsunami that marked the impact that finished off the dinosaurs

The same tendency of a well-defined sequential order in fossilized species has been found to hold all over the world. For instance, rock layers containing trilobites are found below, never above, layers containing modern clam species. Rocks with horse fossils are found above, never…
