New NASA research reveals that earth giant animal Dinosaurs went extinct due to the Martian shield volcano ,which is around 1 to 3 million year ago . Study suggest the last observed volcanic activity ceased about 50 million year ago .Scientist are still unclear that this super volcano cause born and scattering of new asteroid that hit earth cause extinct from earth .
They have studied the place where evacuation of a magma took place on mars about 110 km in diameter and captured its image and process that image to obtain high defination image .
“We estimate that the peak activity for the volcanic field at the summit of Arsia Mons probably occurred approximately 150 million years ago—the late Jurassic period on Earth—and then died out around the same time as Earth’s dinosaurs,” said Jacob Richardson, a postdoctoral researcher at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. “It’s possible, though, that the last volcanic vent or two might have been active in the past 50 million years, which is very recent in geological terms.” source : nasa
