Caption: Asteroid impact. Computer artwork of an asteroid impacting an ocean on a prehistoric Earth. Several Plesiosaur marine reptiles have raised their necks out of the water. The impact will devastate the surrounding area and send tsunamis (massive waves) around the globe to destroy coastal areas. Large amounts of water vapour thrown into the atmosphere will form planet-wide clouds and lower global temperatures. Plant and then animal life will begin to die off. It is believed that such an impact caused the mass loss of life that included the extinction of the dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous period 65 million years ago. *** NO CONSUMER POSTER OR CALENDAR USE ***.
