Via the Los Angeles Natural History Museum:
Explorers from yesterday and today have taken the dangerous journey to Antarctica, all in the name of science. Whether digging for fossils, studying past climates, or examining solar systems, Antarctica is the hub for scientists hoping to uncover what was left frozen in time. Join us for a panel discussion in honor of our special exhibition, Antarctic Dinosaurs. See the exhibition after-hours, hear from experts who have researched Antarctica's history, and discover what learning about Antarctica's past can tell us about our future.
