Did an Asteroid Really Kill the Dinosaurs?

Did a space-rock six miles wide slam into the Earth 66 million years ago and wipe out 75 percent of all living species at that time, including the dinosaurs? Cosmic collisions are abundant in our solar system. See the numerous craters on worlds like the moon, Mars, and even distant Pluto. Explore the dinosaur disaster up close, supported by evidence from the Museum’s own Geology department, in this MPM original Planetarium production.
