This is the place of evidence of the almost-devastated planet in the past



Chocolov Puerto – Cenote, is a destination shaped like a blue lake in a beautiful cave in Mexico. Moreover, this place was assessed as evidence that the earth had been destroyed almost in the past.

BBC Travel launched on Wednesday (11/14/2018), in the mid-1980s, a group of American archaeologists examined satellite images showing the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico. They do not know what makes an unexpected pattern, which is almost perfect ring.

The area is about 200 km.In the city of Chicxulub Puerto, Mexico is believed by scientists to be the center of the crater from a collision of asteroids which then wiped out dinosaurs.

Better known as Cenote, the hole with blue water is what he meant. This is the main attraction of tourists visiting the Yucatan Peninsula.

When looking out of space, these cluster holes together to form a pattern of almost half a circle. Archaeologists have discovered this pattern, encompassing the capital city of Merida, and the port cities of Sisel and Progreso.

Maya used water from cenote for their daily needs. They are native to the peninsula.

These holes confuse the researchers. They presented the findings to other satellite experts at a scientific conference at Sulfur in Acapulco, Mexico, in 1988.

For a scientist among the audience, Adriana Ocampo, who was then a young planetary geologist at NASA, was a round circle and a sign of expectation, he predicted it was the impact of this giant asteroid that was quite malignant to make the planet threatened by 66 million years ago.

Ocampo's prediction is the beginning of the foundation of scientists' beliefs today. The crater was caused by a 12-kilometer wide asteroid that hit Yucatan and exploded with inconceivable force.

Since the early 1990s, teams of scientists from America, Europe and Asia have worked to answer the puzzle. Now they believe the impact creates a crater at a speed of 30 kilometers.

After the disaster, the world changed and was wrapped in a cloud of ashes that blocked the sky and created a long night for more than a year. The temperature drops below freezing and kills about 75% of all life on Earth, including almost all the dinosaurs.

Until Ocampo's findings were published in 1991, the Yucatan region has now become the subject of international interest. Now there is a museum opened in September 2018, the Science Museum of Chicxulub Crater, a joint project by the Government of Mexico and the University's largest university of UNAM.

The goal was to introduce life 66 million years ago, when 12 kilometers of asteroids changed world history, and this museum is expected to be a bridge for tourists to explore the prehistoric period of Yucatan.
