When:Tu 15-09-2020 20:00 - 21:30

The dinosaurs ruled the Earth for over 150 million years--evolving from small shadow dwellers into spectacular giants like Brontosaurus and T. rex. Sixty-six million years ago, the Earth’s most fearsome creatures vanished. Today they remain one of our planet’s great mysteries. Paleontologist Steve Brusatte, will recount the complete story of where dinosaurs came from, how they rose up to dominance, how most of them went extinct when a giant asteroid hit, and how some of them lived on as today's birds. At a time when Homo sapiens has existed for less than 200,000 years and we are already talking about planetary extinction, dinosaurs are a timely reminder of what humans can learn from the magnificent creatures that ruled the earth before us.
