NEW Exhibit and special presentation May 20th at the Sherman Museum in
Dinosaurs and Meteorites: A Flash From the Past
The Sherman Museum, located in downtown Sherman, TX, is excited to
premier an exciting new museum exhibit, ?Dinosaurs and Meteorites: A
Flash From the Past? this summer. 65million years ago, a major
galactic event triggered a massive reaction on earth. This event led to
the demise of the dinosaurs. Today we search for the clues to what
happened to end their time on the planet. What are meteorites?How do we
find them? How are dinosaurs found? What happened to cause
theirextinction? What about T.rex? Did it survive?
Geoffrey Notkin, CEO Aerolite Meteorites and President of the National
Space Society, and John Bennitt, owner Dinosaur Brokers and PaleoBOND,
will take you on an adventure of how space and time touched the earth
and changed the future of the dinosaurs forever on Monday, May 20 at 2
PM in the Sherman Museum lecture hall. The exhibit hall will be open to
kick off this summer exhibit, which runs through August 17, 2019.
Notkin starred in three season of the multi award-winning television
adventure series Meteorite Men for Discovery networks and two seasons of
STEM Journals, for which he received two Emmy Awards. He has also
appeared in show for National Geographic, History Channel, Travel
Channel, TLC, OBS,A&E, NASA and the BBC. An established author, Notkin
will be available to sign his book Meteorite Hunting: How to Find
Treasure From Space which will be available for purchase following the
presentation.Notkin is a well-known authority on meteorites and has
worked with many of the world's leading institutions. ?I had an
epiphany at the London Geological Museum Hall of Meteorites when I
realized that the study of meteorites is the perfect combination of
geology and astronomy. I have been hooked ever since,?he stated.
Bennitt started his paleontology career early working with Holsteins of
the Quaternary period. This was just a precursor to the last fifteen
years of hunting, digging, preparing, molding, casting and mounting cows
and other specimens from the Mesozoic and Cenozoic. ?Since starting my
own business, I?ve taught myself to prep fossils and do restoration
work as a result of taking over PaleoBOND, a well known company in the
paleo prep world,?Bennitt said.
Seating is limited for the May 20th lecture and it is recommended that
