(sent for Allan Edels)
Nathan presented the paper (and demonstrated it with a bullwhip) back
in 1998. (I was at the DinoFest 1998 in Phila. PA where he
As the article describes, this is an attempt to build a physical model

the sauropod tail (at least not much).
Not exactly old news - instead a revamped effort to display the possibilities.
