Scientists have found out what happened to our planet after the death of dinosaurs

The atmospheric darkness was caused by the resulting crushed rock and sulfuric acid becoming clouds in the sky, lowering global temperatures and starting acid rain.

Scientists figured out what happened to our planet after the dinosaurs died

< p>According to the theory, the dinosaurs died out due to a meteorite impact approximately 66 million years ago. After a global catastrophe, some places on the Earth plunged into pitch darkness. There was no light for two years.

The study was published on the Leave website Science.

Darkness also contributed to the extinction of ancient reptiles. Scientists suggest that the atmospheric darkness was caused by the grinding of rock and sulfuric acid. All this rose into the air and became clouds. The temperature on the surface of the planet has decreased, acid rain has been falling in some places.

disrupted the processes of photosynthesis, and therefore the ecosystem came to collapse. Even after sunlight returned to these areas, photosynthesis was poor for decades.

Scientists used computer simulations to confirm this theory.
