Experience the disaster that wiped out dinosaurs – Science Channel

When the dinosaur-killing asteroid struck Earth, most of the impact energy was directed outwards and upwards into space. Only 1% of the force traveled down into the ground, but it was enough to ring the planet like a bell and wiped out species around the globe. Only those creatures able to seek shelter from the intense heat on the surface survived.
