Episode Summary

First Apocalypse
Sixty five million years ago the dinosaurs were wiped off the face of the Earth. Over the years there have been a number of theories as to why. For the last three decades it has been thought that the cause was an asteroid impact in Mexico. Now, some scientists believe that a giant volcano in India was the culprit, as well as other environmental factors. Either way, many agree that the demise of the dinosaurs could not have been a simple story of a single impact event, followed by complete extinction. It is believed by many experts that a complex interaction of events combined to fulfill a fate many thousands of years in the making. How can we learn from the dinosaur's fall from grace and how much our own fate may be intertwined with theirs? Are we doomed to follow in the dinosaurs footsteps or can we face down extinction?moreless
