Cretaceous Asteroid Armageddon Ignites TV Screens in ‘Dinosaur Apocalypse’

One fateful day some 66 million years ago, a 7.5-mile-wide (12-kilometre) space rock collides with Earth, setting off a series of events that ended the age of the dinosaurs. From the dinosaurs’ perspective, it’s one of the most unlucky days for life on Earth, and a new TV special pieces together what happened using newly discovered evidence.

“Dinosaur Apocalypse,” part of NOVA’s science series, airs in two parts beginning May 11 on PBS. In the documentary, narrated by Sir David Attenborough, you’ll follow paleontologists as they unearth new fossils, then watch their finds unfold with dinosaurs rendered with computer generated images (CGI).
