Radar topography reveals the 180 kilometer (112 mi) ring of the crater; clustered around the crater's trough are numerous sinkholes, suggesting a prehistoric oceanic basin in the depression left by the impact (Image courtesy NASA/JPL-Caltech).

The Chicxulub crater in Mexico is a massive crater that is believed to have been created roughly 65 million years ago by an meteorite impact. The crater itself is 180 kilometers in diameter.

Following the fall of the Liberty Defense Perimeter on May 28th, 1953, Daedalus led the Chimeran Fleet to the Chicxulub Crater to begin the final phase of the Chimera's plan; excavating, building and repairing a Chimeran tower at the center of the crater. The tower itself was only partially-uncovered, but was described as being 4 times the size of the hub tower located in Chicago, and is the central hub for the entire global tower network. With the fleet constantly assembling over the crater, a massive army of Chimera was deployed to uncover the tower.[1]

Desperate to stop the activation of the Chicxulub Tower, SRPA initiated Operation Black Eden on June 26th to destroy the fleet with a prototype fission bomb (dubbed Nellie) on the fleet's flagship, and by extension killing Daedalus. The mission succeeded, with Daedalus being personally killed by Nathan Hale, and the bomb detonated, destroying the fleet. However, the ultimate outcome only allowed the bomb's nuclear explosion triggered a massive energy surge through the Chimeran tower network, creating a portal to the Chimera's homeworld over New York City.[2][3]

TriviaEdit

  • In reality, the Chicxulub Crater was actually discovered in 1978 by geophysicist Glen Penfield during a scout for potential oil drilling locations while working for the Pemex oil company.
  • The Chicxulub Crater is widely believed to be the impact site of the comet responsible for the K-T extinction event, which caused the extinction of the dinosaurs and over 75% of life on Earth.[4]
