Hunting for Dinosuars Reveals Our Place In The Universe

Founding Dean of the School, paleontologist Dr. Kenneth Lacovara, discovered and unearthed the 77-million-year-old sauropod Dreadnoughtus - the herbivore was one of the largest animals to ever walk this earth. In his TED Talk, Dr. Lacovara explores the meaning of these magnificent creatures and our place in the universe. He provides an overview of the history of the Earth’s geological history and implores his listeners to act in response to the global environmental crisis.
