The bull's-eye marks the point where the extra terrestrial body, which is
estimated at having been some 10 mile in diameter impacted with the earth some
66Ma ago and is thought to have been responsible for the extinction of the
dinosaurs and many other life forms of the time. By the late Cretacious Period
the ocean separating the continents of Africa and South America was of a
considerable width, and the island of India was moving towards southern Asia.
The word Chicxulub in the Mayan language means, "the tail of the devil". The
impact crater was discovered as recently as 1970 by geophysicist Glen Penfield
while doing research in the area for oil.
