Caption: Death of the dinosaurs. Artist's impression of a giant dinosaur observing the filmy veil of an approaching comet. The dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago, along with thousands of other life-forms, at the end of the Cretaceous Period. The theory that the mass extinction was caused by a comet or other extraterrestrial body striking Earth has recently received support from geological evidence, though numerous other explanations for the death of the dinosaurs have been put forward.
