Cretaceous asteroid Armageddon ignites TV screens in ‘Dinosaur Apocalypse’

On a fateful day around 66 million years ago, a 7.5 mile wide (12 kilometer) space rock crashed into Earth, setting off a series of events that ended the age of the dinosaurs . From a dinosaur perspective, it’s one of the unluckiest days of life on Earth, and a new special is piecing together what happened using freshly uncovered evidence.

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