  Asteroid That Killed The Dinosaurs Plunged The Earth Into A Deep Freeze We know that around 66 million years ago the dinosaurs were eradicated by a city-sized asteroid that struck the Earth.What we’re not entirely sure of however is what happened straight after the impact, in the following years. Well in much the same way that the arrival of winter signifies death in the book ‘Game of Thrones’, it appears as though winter was also the the downfall for our scaly relatives.A team of researchers who have been drilling into the vast crater of the asteroid were able to confirm that not only was the Earth plunged into a deadly winter but that it was even worse than originally believed.

The new Luas Cross City line will open to passengers in 12 weeks time, according to Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII). This would see the line operate from December 9th.

The Luas Cross City , pictured here on Westmoreland Street, is due to open in a matter of weeks. The new route will be a double Luas track, just like the current red and green lines , at the southern end of the line (from O’Connell Street until Broomsbridge Station).
