With a power equivalent to several billion times that of Hiroshima, the explosion would have raised astronomical quantities of dust and debris, blocking the light of the Sun and generating a powerful greenhouse effect for thousands of years. This long "night", coupled with very strong volcanic activity, would have caused the collapse of a large part of the ecosystems.

What happened 66 million years ago? The death of the dinosaurs?Yes !

But how? Erupting volcanoes? An asteroid? Yes! In the heart.

From Mexico, to Chicxulub to be exact. A photograph of the impact even allows us to tell it to ourselves. But who can tell us what happened? Nobody. Nobody...

And what is a dinosaur? A whole imaginary then opens up... isn't it?

So we decided to give the floor to the dinosaurs, to the asteroid, to the first female paleontologist. And finally to the sapiens for whom we are telling this masquerade.
