Five times in the deep past, the majority of life on Earth was nearly wiped out. This is the story of two of the most dramatic extinction events: the fastest, which annihilated the dinosaurs. And the most deadly, dubbed the “Great Dying.”

What triggered these apocalyptic die-offs, and what can they tell us about our future? Are we headed for a sixth mass extinction? Experts are traveling the world and performing groundbreaking scientific detective work to answer these very questions (46 min).
