Perot Museum of Nature and Science | Human Origin Event

March 18th @ 2:00pm GMT

Camera Spots Available: 6

Becca Peixotto is an archaeologist who used her caving and climbing experience to excavate early human fossils 40 metres underground in the Rising Star Cave System in South Africa, helping to uncover what turned out to be a new-to-science ancient human relative, Homo naledi. Join her live at the Perot Museum in Dallas, Texas for a behind the scenes look at the exhibition called “Origins: Fossils from the Cradle of Humankind.” These fossils are part of an astonishing discovery of over 1,500 fossil elements of one of our human ancestors. This is the first time these treasures have been out of Africa and displayed in North America, and will be returning home next month!

Paul Salopek | Out of Eden Walk

March 19th @ 1:00pm GMT

Camera Spots Available: 6

Join Paul Salopek live from Myanmar! Paul's 21,000-mile Out of Eden Walk is a decade-long experiment in slow journalism, walking from Ethiopia to Tierra del Fuego in South America. He's already been walking for 7 years and is about to enter into China for the next leg of his epic journey. Moving at the beat of his footsteps, Paul is walking the pathways of the first humans who migrated out of Africa in the Stone Age and made the Earth ours. Along the way he is covering the major stories of our time—from climate change to technological innovation, from mass migration to cultural survival—by giving voice to the people who inhabit them every day. His words, as well as his photographs, video, and audio, create a global record of human life at the start of a new millennium as told by villagers, nomads, traders, farmers, soldiers, and artists who rarely make the news.
