Artwork of the Chicxulub asteroid impact

Asteroid impact. Illustration of a large asteroid colliding with Earth on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. This impact is believed to have led to the death of the dinosaurs some 65 million years ago. The impact formed the Chicxulub crater, which is around 200 kilometres wide. The impact would have thrown trillions of tons of dust into the atmosphere, cooling the Earth's climate significantly, which may have been responsible for the mass extinction. A layer of iridium- rich rock, known as the K/T boundary, is thought to be the remnants of the impact debris

1863 Huxley from Ape to Man evolution Featured Extinct Print

1863 Huxley from Ape to Man evolution

Ordered series of primate skeletons. The Frontis engraving by Waterhouse Hawkins from the first edition of Huxley's 1863 "Evidences as to Man's Place in Nature". In this book Huxley presented his evidence that man was descended from the apes. It was published in reaction to Darwin's "On the Origin of Species" 1859. Though this image is often interpreted as indicating a line of descent, it is more intended to show ordered variation in limb bones and posture as well as the clear skeletal similarities in the group. The image has been quoted as an inspiration for Rudolph Zalinger's famous Time-Life 1965 image "The Road to Homo Sapiens" (page 40-45, Nature Library Early Man). That iconic image has become known as "The March of Progress". The artist for this work, Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins, was famous for his pioneering dinosaur reconstructions but lectured against Darwinian evolution
