Caption: Meteorite impacting Earth. Artwork of a meteorite colliding with the Earth. Impacts such as this are known to have occurred throughout the Earth's history. It is thought that such an event may have caused the mass extinction which took place on Earth around 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous period, when the dinosuars became extinct.
