Russian scientists from Vladivostok have laid out a new theory about how the dinosaurs went extinct. According to them, the reason for it was the abrupt increase in earthly mass and gravity.
The new theory proposes that our solar system entered into a gravitational interaction with this dark matter. The outcome was asteroids having their orbits changed and one of these heading toward Earth.
