For about 160 million years, dinosaurs were considered rulers of the world. They emerged during the Triassic Period (231 million years ago) and became extinct at the end of the Cretaceous Period about 66 million years ago. While the dinosaurs were the kings of the land, the seas were dominated by marine reptiles such as the paleosaurs and mosasaurs.

Recently, Dr. Yaron Finzi of the Science Center met with the Austrian space delegation, including researchers Sophie Gruber and Gronot Gromer of OWF, and Mitzpe Ramon Mayor Roni Marom, to discuss the possibility of launching a mission to simulate research on Mars in the Mitzpe Ramon vicinity. The Austrian delegation is considering whether to conduct their next simulation in Israel or Oman. Roni and Yaron emphasized the advantages of carrying out the next simulation in the Negev, south of Makhtesh Ramon.
