Passion Project

My project was meteors and my question was what exactly was the meteor. During my research I learnt about the Chicublux Crater and the meteor that created it. The meteor (or other thing from space) hit at Mexico 20 years after the search for it. The meteor was hidden amongst tons of young rocks and dirt making it hard to find using a satellite. The meteor was about 9 km wide but the reason the impact was massive was probably because of the speed. The impact was said to be so big it sent dust surrounding the whole world and there was so much dust it let through little to no sunlight killing plants, herbivores and carnivores. The meteor was said to be a part of a destroyed planet (probably blew off because of a collision.) And that pretty much marks the end of my research, goodbye.
