March 11, 2018: Illuminated Site of the Week: 65 Million B.C. Was An Inside Job

Illuminated Site of the Week:

The meteor that took out the dinosaurs might not have acted alone. Turns out, throwing a 10-kilometer chunk of rock at Earth does more than throw dust into the atmosphere; it unleashes all manner of cascading failures and Terran disasters. Phil Plait uses his Bad Astronomy blog to correct as much of the misinformation hurtling toward us as he can, which is a cosmic task given how quick folks are to believe the sensational. To be fair, he's also working against hundreds (if not thousands) of years of supposition, and he's only been around one human lifetime. If you don't want to read his work on what new things we've learned about our universe, you can peruse some of the older canards he's dealt with. Between the blog and the SyFy Wire feed, he's got most of the galaxy covered.
