Based on survey observations in the framework of NEOWISE, performed by the Space Telescope WISE, scientists have suggested, that it is unlikely, that killed the dinosaurs remains a huge asteroid Baptistina, crashed into the Earth. Previously, scientists believed, that about 160 million years ago an asteroid crashed in Baptistina asteroid, as a result of the collision, was formed a few large fragments, one of which crashed into Earth about 65 million years ago. However, observations, which made at infrared wavelengths using the Space Telescope WISE showed, that the another asteroid crased in asteroid Baptistina not before, then 80 million years ago and there is very little chance, that the fragments formed as a result of this collision could be displaced from the orbit of the main asteroid belt and reach the Earth. It is therefore likely, that dinosaurs caused something else.
