[UPDATE] Jurassic World Science. In the Jurassic World movies, dinosaurs travel from the island park to our cities and wilderness. We chat with fan scientists from the franchise to explore the real-world science of bringing dinosaurs back to life and setting them free. We’ll ask the big questions: what’s good and bad about the movies about these extinct creatures? What are the technical challenges and ethical considerations of genetic recreation and tinkering with different species? What is the impact of introducing megafauna in different environments? Once the dinos are free, what rights do they have to survive? Does life really find a way? Our team of scientists includes paleontologist Stuart Sumida (technical consultant, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Camp Cretaceous), herpetologist Earyn McGee (“Find That Lizard”), conservation biologist Sam Wynns, evolutionary developmental biologist Claire Meaders, paleontologist Gabe Santos, and geneticist and science fiction author J. Dianne Dotson (Questrison Saga). Moderated by James Floyd (Podcast Host, Star Warsologies, Regular Freelance Contributor, Star Wars Insider magazine).
