The demise of the dinosaurs

Just heard this Radiolab program on NPR about the asteroid that did in the dinosaurs. It had all sorts of new information that I hadn't heard before about the effects of the asteroid. Really worth watching, if you've got a little time.

Fascinating and terrifying, i.e., the glass beads from Hell!

No kidding about the glass beads. I'd never heard that one before. The whole world incinerated, truly terrifying. Seems like it would be money well spent to invest in comet/asteroid deflecting technology.

THAT was amazing. Made me laugh, made me cry and taught me something new - I didn't know about the molted grass theory. I wish Tiago knew enough English already to watch with him. Loved the musicians, especially the badass Jimmy Page descendant.

Yeah, I hadn't heard about that one either. Fascinating and scary. It was great to actually be able to watch the musicians, wasn't it? I started out listening to this in my car and when I got home, I searched for Radiolab and got this video.
