Paints a very real picture supporting the theory of the dinosaurs' death 66 million years ago
I always love watching anything from Nova. In this documentary we meet Alice, a paleontologist and Ben, a biologist, who walk us through the day the dinosaurs died. From Ben's point of view, we experience extracting rock samples from the Chicxulub crater in the Gulf of Mexico. Alice takes us with her as she visits a magnificent fossil site in New Jersey. This documentary paints a very real picture of the whole scenario, showing new evidence that supports the theory of the dinosaurs' deaths and what happened to the rest of the world after the impact of the meteor that killed off the dinosaurs. It is breath-taking and intriguing. I recommend it for ages 10 to 18 as well as adults and give it 5 out of 5 stars. By Rachael V., KIDS FIRST! Juror
