How does an invisible underwater crater prove that an asteroid killed the dinosaurs by Michael Benton. The bit I like best is where he tells how boreholes made by a Mexican oil company helped provide evidence.

I can't imagine, but I read that apparently dinosaurs were becoming extinct about a million years or more before the asteroid struck. Didn't really say how anyone knows this!!!!!! Can't help about the boreholes though, but it's a novel idea!!!!
