  • An illustration of a dinosaur standing on two legs with large teeth and an open mouth. Caption: Roar!

    The dinosaurs were headed for trouble. They ate nothing but junk food. They never brushed their teeth. They stayed up all night, and they jumped off cliffs even though they could not fly. To avoid extinction, they evolved into birds.

  • A diagram showing the transition from Reptiles (dinosaurs and crocodile-like animal) to Archaeopteryx (feathered animal between a reptile and a bird), to Birds. Caption: between birds and reptiles.

    The discovery of Archaeopteryx in a quarry in Germany in the early 1860s provided the first clue that birds descended from reptiles. In the last 40 years, scientists have identified many shared features between birds and two-legged carnivorous dinosaurs called theropods.

  • Illustration of globular organisms with fine hairs projecting from their body. Caption: When they die, their shells become part of the sediment.

    The disappearance of the dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous period posed one of the greatest, long-standing scientific mysteries. This three-act film tells the story of the detective work that solved it. Shot on location in Italy, Spain, Texas, Colorado, and North Dakota, the film traces the uncovering of key clues that led to the discovery that an asteroid struck the Earth 66 million years ago, triggering a mass extinction of animals, plants, and even microorganisms. Each act illustrates the nature and power of the scientific method.

    Features different systems of measurement and their value to science in five separate segments. Stardust Elements: Looks at the life cycles of stars and explains how the death of a star seeds the universe with all the elements of the periodic table. End of Dinosaurs: Debates several scientific theories about why and how dinosaurs became extinct. Earthly Thermometers: Demonstrates how the Fahrenheit, Celsius, and Kelvin scales measure the same thing in different ways and why we need precise measurements of temperature. Frozen in Time: Pieces together the past of a 5,300-year-old man whose body was preserved in ice in the Italian Alps. Hurricanes Take the Heat: Follows researchers who study how hurricanes form and try to predict where the next one will strike.
