Scientists in Action: After the Asteroid
Sixty-six million years ago, an enormous asteroid collided with our planet and brought the age of the dinosaurs to a dramatic end. Surviving life began to flourish, evolving over time into the plants and animals we are surrounded by today. But how Earth made a comeback after the impact has long been unknown to science ... until now! Join paleontologists from the Denver Museum of Nature & Science for a live virtual look at a groundbreaking new discovery made by the Museum, and learn what a new collection of never-before-seen fossils tells us about the history of modern life. Broadcasting live from the dig site if weather permits.
