4 winged dino NOVA

"The Four-Winged Dinosaur" premieres Tuesday, NOVA February 26

"In 2002, the discovery of a beautiful and bizarre fossil astonished scientists and reignited the debate over the origin of flight. With four wings and superbly preserved feathers, the creature was like nothing paleontologists had ever seen before. Join us this Tuesday as NOVA travels to the Chinese stone quarry where the fossil was discovered and teams up with the world's leading figures in paleontology, biomechanics, aerodynamics, and scientific reconstruction to perform an unorthodox experiment: a wind tunnel flight test of a scientific replica of the ancient oddity."

"The Four-Winged Dinosaur" will premiere Tuesday, February 26 at 8pm on most PBS stations
