The Man Who Saw Dinosaurs

When you hear the word “dinosaur”, you can immediately picture a prehistoric creature. And that’s kind of amazing, since no human being has ever set eyes on one. As science historian Richard Milner and paleontologist Paul Olsen explain, the images that we have derive largely from the work of one man, Charles R. Knight.  [Produced for PRI‘s “Studio 360“.]
