Chicxulub Yucatan Where the Comet Hit
Chicxulub Yucatan where the comet hit: We visited the place wondering what we would find there: Desolation? An endless expanse of dirt without life? Miles of volcanic ash?
None of the above. Chicxulub Yucatan where the comet hit, presently exists as a sleepy fishing village at the northern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula.
It is the site where, 65 million years ago, a six-mile-wide meteor hit the earth leading to the extinction of the dinosaurs.
The NASA map on the right shows the location of the impact crater, with a point outside Chicxulub in the Gulf of Mexico at its center. The dotted line in the lower image marks a line of sinkholes, which formed access to underground water resources called cenotes.
