Tyrannosaurus rex is easily the most famous and most well-studied species of ancient dinosaur. How much do we really know about it? And how much that is reported about it is actually supported by scientific evidence? Paleontologist Dr. Tom Holtz (University of Maryland) discusses the latest research about the King of the Tyrant Lizards.

Dr. Thomas R. Holtz, Jr., is a vertebrate paleontologist and principal lecturer at the University of Maryland. He previously spoke to the Friends about "Growing Up Tyrant Style: The Shifting Ecology of Tyrannosaurs During Growth." He is also the author of Dinosaurs: The Most Complete, Up-to-Date Encyclopedia for Dinosaur Lovers of All Ages.

Dr. Holtz will give a live, in-person talk at Arlington's David M. Brown Planetarium on Sunday, February 26 at 3:00 PM. Tickets may be purchased in advance online for $5.00 or $3.50 for children and seniors. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door.

Come early for "TimeSpace" a full-dome planetarium show at 1:30 PM on Sunday. During this show, we will take an imaginary journey to the beginning of the universe, the end of the age of dinosaurs, and the first moon landing. On Saturday, two additional shows are planned. A separate ticket is required for each event.

The David M. Brown Planetarium is located at 1426 N Quincy St, Arlington, VA 22207.
