Dinosaur-killing space rock may have originated at the edge of the solar system

The chunk of space rock that killed the nonavian dinosaurs may have been a chunk of a comet that Jupiter’s gravity kicked onto a collision course with Earth. 

A brand new examine means that the dinosaur-killing object was not an asteroid from between Jupiter and Mars, as is commonly hypothesized. Instead, the examine authors argue, the impactor was a chunk of a comet from the Oort cloud, a mass of icy our bodies that surrounds the outer edges of the solar system.
