Caption

Asteroid strike. Artwork of a large asteroid striking a populated area of the Earth. Such an impact would cause devastation over a wide area. The impact would throw a huge amount of material into the atmosphere, which would block out sunlight and lower global temperatures. It is thought that a similar impact was responsible for the extinction of the dinosaurs some 65 million years ago.
