I thought everyone was aware that astronomers found that the moon orbit
changes very slowly -- it is moving away from the earth about 2 inches per
year.  Some folks did a reverse calculation; by reducing the orbit altitude
2 inches per year they found that when the moon was orbiting the earth at
about 40 ft., it struck and killed the dinosaurs -- especially the taller
ones that didn't learn to duck fast enough.  This, not radioactivity, is
what led to the extinction of the dinosaurs.
