Another feature of the samples turned out to be almost complete absence of sulfur-containing sediments: apparently, these minerals were completely evaporated as a result of hitting. Filling the atmosphere of gray, they could additionally shield sunlight and cause acid rain. It is random and global climate change that occurred after the fall of the asteroid, scientists call the "real killer" dinosaurs.
