Re: Dinosaur heart found?

The Science embargo expired 2 p.m. today (Thursday); it's in the 21 April issue. Dale Russell has the fossil, and it's on display at the museum at North Carolina State Unviersity in Raleigh. The web site http://www.dinoheart.org/ is up and open to all comers.

This is neat stuff. I have an article coming out in next week's New Scientist (we come out too early in London to get it into this week's issue). The heart shows a single aorta, like birds but unlike the dual aortas of modern crocodiles, consistent with the belief that dinosaurs were active animals.
