"Dinosaur Prophecy"

Saturday Sep 6
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Dinosaur Prophecy examines the deaths of the dominant and ferocious creatures, which tell of the Earth's enormous power and potential for dramatic and devastating change. Each disaster that affected the dinosaurs is a warning for human survival. Viewers discover the lives of multiple species of dinosaurs, from the Coelophysis of 205 million years ago to the Allosaurus and Diplodocus of the mid-Jurassic period.

The planetarium show The Dinosaur Prophecy is a co-production of the Rice Space Institute and the Houston Museum of Natural Science, funded by NASA's Office of Earth Science under the "Immersive Earth" project, NASA cooperative agreement NCC5-316. Other production partners include Home Run Pictures and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.
