  • THE discovery of high concentrations of iridium in Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary sediments engendered the hypothesis1 that a meteorite collided with the Earth 65 million years ago, coincident with the mass extinction that occurred at that time. Iridium spikes of various magnitudes have subsequently been reported at more than 10 other extinction horizons2–11. It has been suggested, on the other hand, that geochemical processes might create or modify many of these spikes5, 11–4, but a critical… CONTINUE READING
