The Science Behind the Story: PBS's Nova Depiction of Mass Extinctions
Join WSKG for a special screeing of Nova scienceNOW's "Dinosaur Plague" and "Mass Extinction" with commentary from local experts. Over the years, scientists have suggested everything from global climate change to a spate of massive volcanic eruptions to the most widely accepted culprit: an asteroid that unleashed global devastation. Could these giant reptiles have been taken down by something almost too tiny to see? General public welcome!
Special guests include:
- Dr. Warren Allmon, Director of the Paleontological Research Institution and its Museum of the Earth and the Hunter R. Rawlings III Professor of Paleontology at Cornell University
- Dr. Christopher McRoberts, Professor of Geology SUNY Cortland
- Dr. Robert Ross, Associate Director for Outreach at Paleontological Research Institution
Come find out on April 3rd at 7 p.m. at SUNY Cortland, Sperry Hall Room 105.
