65 million years ago a massive asteroid crashed into Mexico's Yucatan peninsula. 75% of all life on Earth vanished but could a single asteroid have been the lone killer?
From global warming to lethal worldwide firestorms, many theories about the impact's deadly aftermath have been postulated. But in 1995 a new theory asserted that a powerful mega-storm known as a "Hypercane" caused the extinction. The hypothetical Hypercane could reach 20 miles into the stratosphere with wind speeds of up to 700 miles per hour! MEGA-DISASTERS shows through stunning 3-D computer animations how this monster storm could have brought down nearly all life on the planet.
