< University of Nebraska State Museum officials will meet this week with 
representatives of Nebraska's Santee Sioux tribe to resolve a dispute over the 
ownership of a plesiosaur fossil excavated in May of this year. >

However, the most astounding news about the fossil is:

< The plesiosaur fossil is estimated to be 70 billion years old. The excavation 
produced approximately one-third of the plesiosaur's sixty to seventy 
vertebrae.>

So, what geological age would that be?
