Yes, indeed. The address is www.nature.com. You must register your name
and a password. I tried many passwords, and failed to get through every
time until I entered a password which included both letters and numbers so
as to avoid duplicating someone else's password. This is the site for
_Nature_ magazine. The registration is free, with no strings attached.
You will get a brief summary of some of the _Nature_ articles at the site,
and, more to the point, you can view the cover of the March 26 issue, which
shows the slab of rock containing the diminutive _Scipionyx samniticus_ in
all its glory, and what a prize specimen it is! For the highest quality
image, of course, we'll all have to rush out and buy the magazine.
Now it's my turn to ask a few questions. What are the dimensions of the
depicted fossil slab? What is the projected length of the animal? How do
we pronounce its name?
