The Dinosaur Asteroid

The Dinosaur Asteroid

By Tumble Media

Tumble Science Podcast for Kids

Friday, 1 April

Where did the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs come from? That’s what our listener Lucian wants to know. Prepare to hear a “podcast movie” about the fateful impact, starting with an explosive collision in space that sent asteroids careening towards Earth. Then we’ll discover the science behind the story, with the help of planetary scientist Sean Gulick. He led an expedition along with Dr. Joanna Morgan to drill into the impact crater - and find the final piece of evidence in the asteroid theory. This episode is sure to blow your mind.

*Special thanks to the kids who helped us collect the sound effects used in the “podcast movie” section of this episode!*
