Killer asteroid had help from super volcanoes?

Scientists have been debating the causes for dinosaur extinction for 35 years. New findings in Fall 2015 show two theories for their disappearance could be both true. 

A paper published in the journal Science show the asteroid that hit earth 66 million years ago may have ended the reign of dinosaurs with help from volcanoes.

A series of volcanic eruptions in India were set off by the shock waves of the asteroid impact in Mexico. The place near Mumbai called the Deccan Traps has layers of lava the size of Spain, the largest lava flows on the planet. 

The paper says the two theories about what killed the dinosaurs, debated for 35 years, may be both true.
