A collision 160 million years ago of two asteroids orbiting between Mars and Jupiter sent many big rock chunks hurtling toward earth, scientists said. That catastrophe eliminated the dinosaurs and many other life forms, and paved the way for mammals to dominate earth. The impact is thought to have triggered a worldwide environmental cataclysm, expelling vast quantities of rock and dust into the sky, unleashing giant tsunamis, sparking global wild fires and leaving earth shrouded in darkness for years.
