In all seriousness, this is a pretty awesome find. This pushes the age of the Grand Canyon back 40 to 50 million years more than previously thought.
Because both canyon and plateau samples resided at nearly the same depth beneath the Earth’s surface 55 million years ago, a canyon of about the same dimensions of today may have existed at least that far back,” he said, “possibly as far back as the time of dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous period 65 million years ago.” That’s when the dinosaurs died off.
