Did An Asteroid Really Kill The Dinosaurs?

Did a space rock six miles wide slam into the Earth 66 million years ago and wipe out 75 percent of all living species at that time, including the dinosaurs? Explore these impacts and cosmic collisions across the Solar System in this dynamic show.

This program was produced by the Milwaukee Public Museum. A tour of our current night sky using our stunning Carl Zeiss Starmaster ZKP-4 star projector is included.
