    Default BOOM, baby. Dino-Killing Asteroid May Have Punctured Earth's Crust



    After analysing the crater from the cosmic impact that ended the age of dinosaurs, scientists now say the object that smacked into the planet and created the 180 km-wide crater at Chicxulub in Mexico may have punched nearly all the way through Earth's crust, according to a new study.
