Join physicist Lisa Randall as she tells a breathtaking story that weaves together the histories of Earth and the larger cosmos. Her book Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs explores a speculative hypothesis in which the comet that may have triggered the mass extinction of the dinosaurs was dislodged from the Oort cloud at the edge of our solar system by a disk of dark matter.
