New Theory for Permian-Triassic Mass Extinction

250 Million years ago, about 90 percent of ocean life and 70 percent of land species were wiped out in a relatively short geologic time span. A new study appearing today in Science magazine suggests that this die-off was triggered by a comet or asteroid collision similar to the one that many believed later killed off the dinosaurs. The lead author of the study, Luann Becker of the University of...
