Dinosaurs have captured the imaginations of children and adults for generations. In 1993, dino-fever soared to new heights with the release of Steven Spielberg’s classic science fiction film Jurassic Park (based on Michael Chrichton’s novel of the same name). Since then, there have been five more Jurassic Park films and a slew of comic books, video games, and toys. Dinosaurs show no signs of stopping as they stampede through our collective imagination.
But some questions remain: How accurate are dinosaurs’ depictions in popular culture? Aren’t they supposed to have feathers? Are the birds in our backyards actually dinosaurs?!
Join C2ST and a panel of experts as we dig into Jurassic Park and the representation of dinos in media. We’ll look at cutting-edge paleontological techniques, hash out recent dino discoveries, and answer your dino questions
