The Dinosaurs Dark-Matter Doom

Did dark matter doom the dinosaurs?  I can't say for sure, since I wasn't around 66 million years ago, but Lisa Randall, the Frank B. Baird, Jr., Professor of Science at Harvard University, makes an intriguing argument. That's what my reference librarian minions tell moi.  For a feline, it's frankly beyond my ordinary kitty concerns, but regular humans should find it a stimulating read.  Even Scowl-Face can understand it, so it must be explained really clearly.

Randall's latest science book, Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs: The Astounding Interconnectedness of the Universe, explores the possibilities. Our book trailer below elaborates.

Interconnectedness of the Universe,

The book is available to checkout from our Evergreen Indiana catalog.

Since this sort of scenario could happen again, it's probably a good idea to learn what we can about when it happened before.  It probably won't be repeated before suppertime, however, so minions may proceed with getting mine pronto.
