Duck-billed Dinosaurs Endured Long, Dark Polar Winters
Apr 11, 2012 17:22 PM E
Duck-billed dinosaurs that lived within Arctic latitudes approximately 70 million years ago likely endured long, dark polar winters instead of migrating to more southern latitudes, a recent study by researchers from the University of Cape Town, Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas and Temple University has found.

Could 'Advanced' Dinosaurs Rule Other Planets?
Apr 11, 2012 13:15 PM E
New scientific research raises the possibility that advanced versions of T. rex and other dinosaurs - monstrous creatures with the intelligence and cunning of humans - may be the life forms that evolved on other planets in the universe. "We would be better off not meeting them," concludes the study, which appears in the Journal of the American Chemical Society.

Venus Invades the Pleiades
Apr 03, 2012 12:37 PM E
This week the second planet from the sun will pass directly in front of the Pleiades star cluster. It's a rare sunset conjunction that's easy to find with the unaided eye, but best seen through binoculars or a small telescope.

Scientists Name 2 New Species of Horned Dinosaur
Mar 13, 2012 08:25 AM E
Two new horned dinosaurs have been named based on fossils collected from Alberta, Canada. The new species, Unescopceratops koppelhusae and Gryphoceratops morrisoni, are from the Leptoceratopsidae family of horned dinosaurs. The herbivores lived during the Late Cretaceous period between 75 to 83 million years ago. The specimens are described in research published in the Jan.
First Dinosaur Discovered in Spain is Younger Than Originally Thought
The First Dinosaur Discovered in Spain Is Younger than Originally Thought
Mar 12, 2012 10:32 AM E
The research group from Aragon that has the same name as the first Aragosaurus ischiaticus dinosaur discovered 25 years ago in Teruel reveals that it is 15 million years younger than originally believed. Its new dating now means that it was the ancestor of the Titanosauriforms, which includes the biggest dinosaurs.

Iridescent, Feathered Dinosaur: New Evidence that Feathers Evolved to Attract Mates
Mar 09, 2012 14:07 PM E
The detailed feather pattern and color of Microraptor--a pigeon-sized, four-winged dinosaur that lived about 120 million years ago--had a glossy iridescent sheen. Its tail was narrow and adorned with a pair of streamer feathers, suggesting the importance of display in the early evolution of feathers, say scientists reporting the findings in this week's issue of the journal Science.

Dinosaur Fossil: Even Specialized Predators didn't Turn Down Free Meals
Mar 06, 2012 11:25 AM E
Scientists have discovered a bone from a pterosaur (giant flying reptile or 'pterodactyl') in the guts of the skeletal remains of a Velociraptor (small predatory theropod dinosaur) that lived in the Gobi Desert in Mongolia some 75 million years ago.

Current Rates of Ocean Acidification are Unparalleled in Earth's History
Mar 02, 2012 07:37 AM E
The study, based on an expert workshop led by Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and the University of Bristol, assessed in detail a number of climate change events in the planet's history, including the asteroid impact that made the dinosaurs go extinct and the Permian mass-extinction which wiped out around 95 per cent of all life on Earth.
Turtle
Polysternon Isonae, a New Species of Turtle that Lived with Dinosaurs in Isona
Feb 28, 2012 12:54 PM E
Researchers at the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (ICP), the Museu de la Conca Dellà (MCD) and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) have published this week in the online edition of the journal Cretaceous Research the discovery and description of a turtle from the end of the age of dinosaurs.
3-D Scanning a Dinosaur Bone
Robotic Dinosaurs on the Way for Next-gen Paleontology at Drexel
Feb 21, 2012 11:09 AM E
Researchers at Drexel University are bringing the latest technological advancements in 3-D printing to the study of ancient life. Using scale models of real fossils, for the first time, they will be able to test hypotheses about how dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals moved and lived in their environments.
Why do Dinosaur Skeletons look so Weird?
Why Do Dinosaur Skeletons Look so Weird?
Feb 16, 2012 16:48 PM E
Many fossilized dinosaurs have been found in a twisted posture. Scientists have long interpreted this as a sign of death spasms. Two researchers from Basel and Mainz now come to the conclusion that this bizarre deformations occurred only during the decomposition of dead dinosaurs.
