Every year hundreds of new species are discovered — unless the discovery eats the scientist! Welcome to the town of Perfection, Nevada, where something has awakened under the surface. Don’t try to run, there is no place you can hide — the graboids are here. Quiet and deadly, you’ll only know they are present when you feel the TREMORS!
Join us at the April installment of Finally Friday to watch Tremors and explore what the film got right and wrong about tremors. Plus learn everything you ever wanted to know about discovering new species, deadly animals, earthquakes, and worms. We’ll host an expert to help us separate the science from the fiction following the film. Don’t miss it!
Our expert this month is Dr. Christian Kammerer, Paleontology curator at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. He’ll help us sort out some of those age-old questions that come up during the movie, like, “Can their really be giant prehistoric worms in Nevada?”.
