Send Sperm to the Moon and Dinosaur Gaps

Scientists have suggested that humans could build an “ark” filled with sperm samples — on the moon. The ark would involve shooting the sperm and ova samples of 6.7 million species up to the moon via multiple payloads. Anthony and Jeff discuss the plan and whether it makes any damn sense whatsoever. Then, dinosaurs were the dominant vertebrates on earth for 150 million years, yet their size range doesn’t correspond with other fossil groups. Why is there a gap in the size range of dinosaurs compared to other species? Jeff and Anthony talk through a new theory.
