Discovery After Dark: Cradle of Mankind

Join us in the OtterBox Digital Dome Theater to review the science behind our understanding of mankind’s evolution in the Turkana Basin of northwestern Kenya. We will use the immersive vistas of the planetarium dome to travel to Africa and examine the modern landscapes. The program will be hosted by Drs. Bob Raynolds and KaChun Yu of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and will feature the geological, paleontological, and archaeological research that has revealed our species’ genesis in the Rift Valley of Africa. Throughout this presentation we will consider past and current research, as well as examine future research plans.
