The real-life dino science behind Jurassic World


Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is the second installment in a reboot trilogy, in which scientists create a terrifying new dinosaur hybrid -- by combining the DNA of a T. Rex and a velociraptor, among other animals. It sounds like summer blockbuster fun – escapist films with big budgets - and no bearing on reality, right? But in real life…paleontologists are indeed working to reconstruct dino DNA. This is Mach at the Movies - a show where we explore the plausibility of our favorite sci-fi shows.
