1979: From excess traces of iridium in late Cretaceous rocks, American scientist Luis Walter Alvarez theorizes that a large comet or asteroid struck the earth 65 million years ago, raising clouds of dust that reduced the amount od solar radiation penetrating the atmosphere and triggering the mass extinctions of dinosaurs and other Mesozoic life. Luis and Walter Alvarez at the K-T Boundary in Gubbio, Italy, 1981.

Dinozor neslinin nasıl yok olduğunu açıklamaya çalışan bir çok iddia ortaya atılmıştır. Geçmiş yıllarda, dinozor türlerinin kısa bir zaman toplu olarak nasıl yok olduğu uzun bir müddet açıklanamamış ve yanardağdaki patlamalardan iklim değişikliklerine kadar çeşitli teoriler öne sürülmüştür. Nobelli fizikçi Luis Alvarez ve oğlu jeolog Walter Alvarez, bir göktaşının türü ortadan kaldırdığını 1980’de ileri sürer. Alvarezler’in iddiası 80’lerin sonları…
