Passcode: Eureka!

Sixty-six million years ago a 6-mile-wide asteroid slammed into Earth and caused the extinction of more than 75% of life on Earth, including the dinosaurs. This was the single worst day for life on Earth. How and when life rebounded in the aftermath of the extinction has been shrouded in mystery due to a poor fossil record. An extraordinary new discovery east of Colorado Springs preserves a remarkably complete fossil record with entire fossil mammals, turtles, crocodiles, and plants and paints a vivid picture of how life rebounded after Earth’s darkest hour. Join Ian Miller, PhD and Tyler R. Lyson, PhD for our online "Dinner" with a Scientist as they share their fantastic discoveries and work at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science!


Enter for a chance to win 7-9 nights of Premium accommodation, three rooms at double occupancy, for the St. James Club Antigua! For every $5 donated, your name is added once! (For example, $20 gets your name in 4 times).
