This is interesting news buzzing around the Net the last few days. The Shuttle Radar Topography Mission has some up with some images that show a huge impact crater from a long time ago here in North America. They believe that this impact caused the dinosaurs to become extinct millions of years ago.

So, if this hadn’t happened, dinos would still rule the earth? Would we be living a strange coexistence with brontosauri? Are the Flintstones now a bizarre view into a strange parallel universe? Am I thinking way too hard about this?

You can find a good story about this at the ScienceDaily site.
