Have you seen the dinosaur fossil from the Impact 66 million years ago?

I love science. I grew up in a home that celebrated it. My brother leant toward astronomy and engineering, myself to microscopy, biology and geology, specifically palaeontology.

The news that scientists unearthed the remains of a dinosaur that died on the day of the asteroid impact that wiped out the dinosaurs is nothing short of amazing – and then there is the fossil itself.

Having looked at and studied fossils all my life, fascinated by the tantalising glimpse they offer into an unimaginably distant past, I can say I gasped out load when I say a photo of this dinosaur leg. Blimey Charlie! I mean you can see SOOOO much detail. This is not just bones. It’s skin, muscle and so much more.

Staggering.

There’s a good article on the BBC news site here… https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-61013740

Our own Impact story is of course imaginary, but at times it does evoke similar emotions and asks questions of the viewer. Of all the movies I have been involved in, this is by far the most thought provoking.

You can still get tickets for the premiere on May 31st in the site here… www.Impact50film.com
