This Wednesday, May 6, from 4 to 5 pm MDT: especially in honor of the 50th anniversary of “Earth Day”, Rice University and the NASA Space Science Education Consortium are hosting their popular planetarium show “Dinosaur Prophecy” with commentary from the Executive Producer Patricia Reiff and author Carolyn Sumners.
“Dinosaur Prophecy” is a cold case researching four dinosaur fossil sites, investigating how they lived and why they died. The show is geared to students in grades 2 through 8.
Q&A will be held after after the 25-minute show. During the show, use the “chat” window for questions and comments. To ask questions after the show, “raise your hand” in the “participant” window and you will be called on.
The event will be streamed using Zoom, which is a free application. Zoom login information will be provided with the registration confirmation.
Tickets are free but donations are encouraged (half will go to HMNS and half to Rice to support space outreach activities). Order tickets here:
And if you like space as well as dinosaurs, stick around from 5 to 6 pm MDT for a special live chat with astronauts Scott Kelly and Mike Massimino. It’s a separate Zoom event, and you can get the details HERE.
