An artist's rendition of the asteroid impact on the Yucatan Peninsula at the Cretaceous-Paleogene (K-T) boundary. The size of the asteroid has been estimated based on the abundance of iridium in the global K-T boundary layer, assuming an iridium abundance typical for carbonaceous chondrites. (NASA)
