NOVA: Day the Dinosaurs Died 66 million years ago a seven-mile-wide asteroid collided with Earth, triggering a chain of events suspected of ending the dinosaurs' reign. But experts have long debated exactly what happened when the asteroid struck and how the giant beasts met their end.

Join NOVA as scientists piece together a chillingly precise unfolding of the Earth's biggest cataclysm, moment by moment.

This dvd answers the puzzling question of how the enormous energy released by a seven mile wide rock hitting earth at thousands of miles per hour went around the planet and changed the surface for living things.

I saw this show on OregonPublicBroadcasting. It is amazing in every aspect. It shows the research put into finding out, finally, what happened to the dinosaurs. It also is a vision of what happened to the rest of earth during this cataclysmic event, and explains why anything could have survived at all. I can hardly wait to get my copy so I can take in all of the dates, times, and facts again. The photography is amazing too.

The Greatest Epic
Review by Diana K. on 04/10/21 review stating The Greatest Epic
I have watched this program twice on TV and am now buying the DVD. This is an awesome story, explaining how it became possible for our mammalian ancestors and us humans to evolve on this planet. Were it not for the cataclysmic asteroid that hit the earth 66 million years ago, the dinosaurs might still reign and we would probably not exist. Its a stunning reality to wrap ones mind around.
