Cretaceous asteroid armageddon ignites TV screens in ‘Dinosaur Apocalypse’

A fateful day some 66 million years ago, a 7.5-mile-wide (12 kilometers) space rock slams into Earth, setting off a series of events that ended the age of dinosaurs. From the dinosaurs’ perspective, it’s one of the unluckiest days for life on Earth, and a new TV special reconstructs what happened using freshly unearthed evidence.

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