"Theories about 'what happened to the dinosaurs' abound as researchers from many fields attempt to hone in on one of the great mysteries of our planet. Artist Bill Hartmann, a renowned planetary scientist in his own right, has captured one of the most plausible and exciting theories in a series of original paintings depicting the impact and resulting catastrophic effect of a 10 km asteroid believed to have hit the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico about 65 million years ago. Now available as an ExInEd Electronic PictureBook, these paintings and their accompanying captions tell the story of the dramatic impact and the climactic changes that may have occurred as a result. The Impact Catastrophe That Ended the Mesozoic Era is an exciting tale and is recommended for all ages.
