23 March 2010 - 11 January 2011. In 1920, pioneering archaeologist Roy Chapman Andrews dismissed warnings of sandstorms, civil wars and armed bandits, as well as derision from his peers, and forged ahead with plans to search for dinosaur remains in Outer Mongolia's Gobi desert.
In spite of all the warnings, Chapman went on to make one of the most important paleontological discoveries of all time by uncovering 160 million-year-old dinosaur skeletons, a fossilized egg nest and the remains of an Oviraptor embryo. Madrid's CosmoCaixa now displays 43 of these fossils in an 800 square metre exhibition space.
