Already, they’re seeing evidence of the incredible heat generated by the impact rock that has melted. And look at… In this part, it is very clear that we have different kinds of colours, like this red color. It goes from green to red… I think it’s melting the material. Melted… Yeah. What about this? I think that is a big cluster melt. That does, too. Look at that. That looks like the suevite. And we are now fully into impact rocks directly, and it’s really easy to see, because it’s granite, and so you can see these spotted, leopard-looking big chunks. So, in effect, you know, these were formed, you know, on the days that the dinos died. Quite heavy, these, aren’t they? Yeah, you really appreciate just… just how solid this rock is. How deep have you gone with this so far? We’ve got to just , metres, about that. So, we were hoping to get , metres, but we’ve got metres of peak ring materials, so we’re pretty happy. Why couldn’t you get ,? SHE LAUGHS Cos… cos the budget ran out. Oh, no! I’m dying to ask the question that I wanted to know as a kid where’s the asteroid? Yes, a lot of people think I’m going to find the asteroid… Yeah. And ask me that question a lot. Something like or more percent of the asteroid is vaporized. Mm-hm. So, in fact, there’s hardly any asteroid here beneath the surface. The asteroid material has been, sort of, spread all around the globe, so it’s been ejected way above the Earth’s atmosphere, traveled round the globe, and landed around the Earth. After eight weeks, the work here is done. I don’t think it could have gone much better. I’ll not forget this place. It’s been an amazing expedition, and I expect we’ll have lots more discoveries to come. More than rock cores have been extracted, which the team hopes will tell the story of how the dinosaurs died. Four months and over , miles later, the rock cores are now here at the University of Bremen in Germany, for the second phase of this colossal and unparalleled scientific journey. I’m inside a huge fridge that’s now home to all the samples that were taken up from the Gulf of Mexico, and it’s really cold in here, as you might expect. Now, this is to stop any organisms from growing and contaminating these samples. This is a test recording. Say something. Oh. Hello, hello. Here in Bremen, the research team is working to find out what happened, minute by minute, after the asteroid struck, and what that meant for the dinosaurs. OK, this is day two that we’ve had the samples, and I’m going to take you through the… around the labs where everybody’s started their analysis. Over here we can see people looking through microscopes, looking at thin slides that have been collected from offshore. Hi, Philippe. I’m going to film you while you take a look at this core. Hey! Unraveling these cores is a mammoth task. Over metres of rock has to be carefully split, tested and photographed. But what they’re starting to reveal about the force of the impact is literally earth-shattering. This core, from above the crater, is what typical geology looks like layer upon layer of similar-looking rock,
