1 x 60'
At least five times, life on earth has hung in the balance as great extinction crises wiped out living things great and small. In Mass Extinction, we answer the big questions about these cataclysmic events: what happened and why? And, just as intriguing, how can we solve these mysteries that occurred so many millions of years ago?
On the front lines of breaking science, we reveal new discoveries that pinpoint how massive volcanic eruptions caused the greatest mass extinction ever. And we’ll explore what these lessons from the past may tell us about our world today. Are we on the brink of a sixth mass extinction?
