WIN! American Experience - Dinosaur Wars on DVD!

Dinosaur Wars, from producer Mark Davis, is the story of two talented scientists, O.C. Marsh and Edward Cope, whose once professional rivalry soured into a bitter personal feud.

Together, Marsh and Cope were responsible for identifying more than 142 different species and for introducing dinosaurs into the American imagination, but their legacy would be forever marred by two decades of ruthless infighting, espionage, and sabotage.

In 1870, Americas untamed West was dry, sparsely vegetated, and constantly eroding. But beneath the surface lay a treasure unlike any in the world: the bones of countless prehistoric creatures.

For the emerging field of American paleontology, this discovery offered an opportunity to piece together and explain nothing less than the history of life on Earth, and to prove Darwins hotly disputed theory of evolution.

If you would like to win a copy of this riveting new DVD, just answer this easy question about Dinosaurs: What dinosaur name means "fast thief?"

WIN! Secrets of the Dead: Worlds Biggest Bomb

Beginning in the 1950s, American and Soviet scientists engaged in a dangerous race to see who could build and detonate the worlds largest bomb. The results exceeded all expectations about how big a bomb could be built.

This is an epic story where the United States led the way, but then left the field clear for the Soviet Union to break all records. Terrifyingly, the bomb-makers on both sides were flying blind as they pushed the technology far into unknown territory.

The US bomb blast of March 1, 1954, known as Castle Bravo, is one of the most extraordinary tales in the history of science - yet one which is largely unknown. On that day the US exploded its first hydrogen bomb. To this day, it remains Americas biggest bomb ever.

As soon as the vast fireball erupted, the test team knew something was desperately wrong. Instead of five megatons, the blast turned out to be fifteen megatons.

The explosion vaporized three entire coral islands, sending the ash 100,000 feet into the air. What went wrong - and why? A forensic investigation using recreations, CGI, scientists and people present at the explosion will relate the dramatic chain of events which led to this explosion rearing out of control.

After the Castle Bravo disaster, the US changed gears to building smaller, more precise bombs. At the same time though, the Soviet Union continued to build massive devices capable of destroying entire cities.

The Soviet bomb program reached its zenith on October 30 1961, with a device they called the Tsar, exploded above the north European island of Novaya Zemlya. At 50 megatons, it released in a nanosecond, energy that equates to 10 times the entire quantity of explosives used in World War II.

The blast wave went three times around the world. It made Castle Bravo look insignificant. How were the Soviets able to detonate such a cataclysmic device without fear of nuclear fallout?

The story of the race to build the Worlds Biggest Bomb has never been fully told. But this fifty year anniversary (2011) provides the perfect opportunity share this chilling story with the world.

If you would like to win a copy of this riveting new DVD, just answer this easy question about Castle Bravo: Twenty-three crew members of the Japanese fishing vessel named ______ ______ _______ (aka Lucky Dragon No. 5) were also contaminated by the heavy fallout, experiencing acute radiation syndrome.
