Pioneer New Technology for Exploration Reviews Significant Findings – Potentially New Species

Expedition Revisits Historic Route of Famed Explorer Roy Chapman Andrews,
Who Discovered Dinosaur Eggs at Flaming Cliffs Over 100 years Ago

Interviews, Actual Findings, Historic Collections,
Update from the Scientists Three Years Later after
Deep Study & Analysis of the Artifacts!

  • 250 new likely fossil locations discovered
  • Potentially three new species found
  • Five entirely new areas located
  • Hundreds of fossilized bones excavated
  • First-ever use of satellites and drone-powered multispectral and thermal cameras to expedite

The 35-person multidisciplinary team of paleontologists, geologists, archaeologists, scientists and The Explorers Club members found possible evidence of three new dinosaur species, more than 250 new fossil locations, five entirely new areas previously not known to contain fossils, and hundreds of fossilized bones, including those of mammals, which were not previously known to have existed in the area. The paleontologists will analyze the fossils they took back to Ulaanbaatar to validate the findings and will explore the newly discovered sites over the next several years, if not decades.

SPECIAL PRESENTATION VIDEO

Take A Look

FIELD PRODUCTION SCHEDULE

Return to the Mongolian Capital city, Ulaanbaatar, in late June 2021 to interview the scientists and explore the findings that are being housed in the basement of the Institute – Learn the results of the exploration and see the models constructed from the findings and confirm new species were detected and dinosaur travel routes never known before.

 

–  Interview three top journalists who were invited on the journey to look back at the incredible experience and reflects on the science of the discoveries

 

– Interview Dr. Scott Nowicki, the NASA scientist who developed the equipment to found and detect fossils for his reactions to what is now believed and how his technologies will open up more gateways to the past

STUDIO PRODUCTION SCHEDULE

  • Late June – On location in Mongolia to review the findings & interview the scientists
  •  Early July –  NYC studio editing
  •  Late July –   Rough Cut Available
  • Early August –  Final Version Available for TV
                               Special Version for D+ Streaming

PRODUCTION & SCHEDULE BUDGET

We are developing the budget for Discovery Networks to purchase this complete program from Bader Media for TV and separate budget for D+ Streaming.

The Mongolian Institute of Paleontology and Geology (IPG), together with the Explorers Club Hong Kong Chapter, uncovered a major breakthrough in paleontological methodology through advanced mapping technology, and a discovery of many significant findings after a 20-day expedition in the Gobi Desert, which took place in June 2018.

Bader Content Studios was the only video news team invited to join the expedition and now after capturing dramatic and historical footage as the scientists excavated breathtaking intact large fragments of dinosaur bones. Now three year later, after the scientists have had time to study the findings and share images with world experts, we return to the capital city of Mongolia to talk with the lead members of the Mongolian Institute of Paleontology and Geology center to breakdown the significance of the large amount and wide ranging discoveries on display in the expanded lab.  

New Species

The multidisciplinary team found possible evidence of three new dinosaur species, more than 250 new fossil locations, five entirely new areas previously not known to have inhabited dinosaur life, with hundreds of fossilized bones. The paleontologists have been analyzing the new discoveries they took back to Ulaanbaatar, the Mongolian capital, to study and validate the findings with the intent to explore these newly discovered sites over the next several years.  

Satellite – Drone Imaging Using NASA Technology

Paleontologists were able to analyze an enormous amount of data collected from satellite and drone imagery to pinpoint high probability locations for fossilization, based on geological and sedimentary markers. The team could then travel quickly to high potential sites to prospect for fossils. The combination of satellite and drone imaging, together with a team of paleontologists and scientists who have worked with NASA, in SUVs – all in close coordination, has never been done before. 

Key Finds by IPG’s
Dr. Badamkhatan Zorigt

  • Largest meat eating dinosaur tooth ever found 

 

  • Hind leg of an Ostrich-type dinosaur from 65 million years ago

 

  • Turtle intact from 70 million years ago

 

  • Neck vertebrae of a dinosaur with a long neck and tail from the same period

 

  • The arm of an ostrich-like dinosaur from 70 million years ago 

Revisit Roy Chapman Andrews Expedition

The expedition revisited the historic route of famed explorer Roy Chapman Andrews, who discovered dinosaur eggs at the Flaming Cliffs approximately 100 years ago. During his 10 year expedition in the Gobi Desert, Roy Chapman Andrews was the first to use motorized vehicles, which vastly improved the distance the expedition could cover.

Special Interview with Richard Wiese: 

 

Since he climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro at age 11, Richard Wiese has circled the globe, capturing powerful images and living one adventure after another—from traveling with Bedouins in Africa to cross-country skiing to the North Pole.  In 2002, as a respected field scientist, Richard became the youngest president in the history of The Explorers Club.

Richard’s philosophy and the premise of Born to Explore® is as much about discovery of the natural world as it is about encouraging a positive understanding of the many distinctive cultures on earth.

WHATS IN THIS 60 MINUTE PROGRAM

Dramatic scenes from the Gobi Desert uncovering bones and fossils from 70-90 million years ago, interviews, still photos and the details on the historic findings!
