Scientists worked on a platform off Mexico's east coast to dig for clues about the destruction of life 66 million years ago inside the 200-kilometer wide Chicxulub crater.This shows that the Yucatan Peninsula was "literally much larger" between 18,000 and 23,000 years ago during the last Ice Age, the scientist said.International geologists, paleontologists and microbiologists arrived on the Myrtle platform in the Gulf in April and worked there for two months, digging 1.5 kilometers under the sea floor and extracting six tons of rock.The $15 million Expedition 364 was the first to peer into the undersea part of the Chicxulub crater.
