Tycho is a relatively young crater (about 108 million years). This age suggests that the impactor may have been a member of the Baptistina family of asteroids. A larger asteroid from the same family may have been the impactor responsible for creating Chicxulub Crater on Earth 65 million years ago, and causing the extinction of the dinosaurs.
