It’s death on an unimaginable scale, when a majority of Earth’s species quickly die out. It’s called “mass extinction,” and it’s happened at least five times before. Cataclysms, such as super volcanoes or asteroids, are thought to cause these events, but some experts believe a man-made mass extinction could be next. Is our planet in trouble? Experts are traveling the world and performing groundbreaking scientific detective work to answer these very questions (46 min).
