Members-Only “After the Asteroid” Screening and Q & A
Wednesday, Oct. 4
In 2016, Associate Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology, Dr. Tyler Lyson made an extraordinary discovery at the Corral Bluffs site in the arid wilds of near Colorado Springs, Colorado. Hidden in the rocky terrain, he uncovered hundreds of fossils of animals and plants, all dating to between 66 and 65 million years ago – precisely the crucial million years after the asteroid impact that extinguished over 75% of all life on Earth.
Join us for this exclusive members-only event where we’ll screen “After the Asteroid,” a new documentary film that follows Dr. Lyson and his team as they work to discover the origins of the animals and plants that inhabit our planet, how life rebuilt itself after the asteroid and why some species survived while others did not. Film dubbed in English.
An open forum Q & A with Dr. Lyson and his team will follow the 90-minute film.
