Re: "Age of the Cybersaur"
<Anyone know where there are 9 meter long horses?>
Now it's me:
How much of this 9m is tail in Iguanodon?
Also, the article mentioned Timothy Rowe's work with
the CT scanner:
"The images can be studied, manipulated, and even
converted into exact physical replicas using industrial
rapid-prototyping systems. 'One of the biggest problems
in paleontology is access to specimens,' says Rowe.
'Once a rare fossil is scanned, it can be copied and
distributed around the world.'"
Seems like we've found the solution to Dinogeorge's
(and everyone else's) problem: fossils on disk!
