What really killed off the dinosaurs? One of the greatest questions scientists have been pondering for years. Now, particle physicist and Town Hall favorite Lisa Randall (Warped Passages, Knocking on Heaven’s Door) proposes a new answer–dark matter. Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs draws a connection between the Milky Way and the dislodged comet that plummeted toward earth 66 million years ago. She’ll describe the ins and outs of this idea, explain what historical galactic events have to say about the present, and, perhaps most importantly, instill a greater appreciation for the interconnectedness of the universe we live in.
