According to the British newspaper “Daily Mail”, this claim comes from Peter Brannen’s 2017 book, The End of the World, which was recently posted on Twitter by blogger Matt Austin.
One excerpt describes the asteroid as violent because it tore apart a “hole from the void of outer space in the atmosphere,” sending this flying debris into orbit and possibly mixing parts of the dinosaurs in the enormous size of Earth that leaked into space, all of which settled on the moon.
Brannen, an award-winning science journalist, wrote that the asteroid was larger than Mount Everest and shattered into the atmosphere 20 times faster than a bullet.
The book includes comments from geophysicist Mario Ripolido at the Research Center who told Brannen: “The pressure of the atmosphere in front of the asteroid began to crater the crater before it got there.”
Then when the meteorite hit the Earth, it was completely intact, and was so huge that the atmosphere did not even scratch it, the book says that the scene seen 66 million years ago was not close to what we see in Hollywood films that usually show a sparkling fireball sparkling in the sky.
“When the asteroid collided with the Earth in the sky above it where there should have been air, the rock created a hole in the outer space in the atmosphere,” Brannen explains, adding, “As the sky rushed to close this hole, huge amounts of Earth were expelled into orbit and beyond. And all within a second or two of colliding. “
“There are likely to be small bits of dinosaur bone on the moon,” Brannen suggests, with the experts likely answering yes.
Although there is no evidence to support the claims made in this book, scholars have been able to piece together the events that unfolded together to arrive at this possibility.
