 Unfortunately, she's not.  In Houston (where space stuff is more fully
 reported) they explain that the shuttles always carry a small payload of
 items that serve no purpose other than novelty, just for the PR value.

Just curious: What PR value is there in taking the skull of a small theropod
into space aboard the Space Shuttle?
