Well, this is an unexpected and funny one. It’s been just revealed that thanks to an interesting piece of writing that has been shared online not too long ago, people are now learning something really weird, something that astrophysicists and possibly astronauts have known for a really long time now.
There are most likely tiny pieces of dinosaurs that are sitting on the Moon!
It seems that dinos beat us to it, according to IFL Science.
“Sixty-five million years before humankind took “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”, dinosaurs made it to our satellite, although to be fair their safety procedures weren’t quite as rigorous as ours so they didn’t so much step foot on the Moon as spray themselves across it like water from a Super Soaker,” the online publication mentioned above noted.
The article continues and drops the most important question: “How did they get there, and possibly beyond? Yes, you guessed it, their version of a rocket ship (the impressive, terrifying idiots) was hitching a lift on the debris caused by the asteroid that wiped them out.”

Explaining the book The Ends of the World
It’s been also revealed that if the body is large enough and fast enough, it could cause debris to achieve escape velocity and leave our atmosphere completely.
The same online publication mentioned above brought up writer Peter Brannen who explains in his book The Ends of the World, the meteor that hit Earth was travelling at such tremendous speed that “as the asteroid collided with the earth, in the sky above it where there should have been air, the rock had punched a hole of outer space vacuum in the atmosphere. As the heavens rushed in to close this hole, enormous volumes of earth were expelled into orbit and beyond — all within a second or two of impact.”
