Dinosaurs of Antarctica 3D 極地尋龍3D The Shaw Prize 2022 Exhibition 2022邵逸夫獎展覽 The now frozen Antarctica was once warm and forested hundreds of millions of years ago with dinosaurs roaming freely. There was fierce competition for survival on the continent. Let’s follow a team of paleoecologists to examine the fossi ls of those prehistoric dinosaurs and witness the dramatic transformation of the southern continent through this 3D dome show which utilized next-level computer graphics to reconstruct the continent’s hidden-greener-past. Established in 2002, the Shaw Prize recognizes currently active scientists with recent significant breakthroughs in scientific research. Three prizes are awarded annually in Mathematical Sciences, Life Science and Medicine, and Astronomy. In the exhibition, you can learn more about the Shaw Laureates of this year and their scientific achievements.
