  • RE: Hypothesis on the volcanic eruptions in India c. 66 mya

    The energy from the impact of the asteroid in Yucatan would have dissipated until it reached the midpoint of the Earth, but then would have refocused at a point almost exactly at the opposite point on the Earth, which just happened to be where India was 65 million years ago on it's drift from the South Pole to its present location. This refocus of energy could have caused the massive volcanic eruptions in India.
