So, What REALLY Killed the Dinosaurs?
Date: Monday, April 27, 2009 - 19:02 PM (Eastern Time)
Author: TRexMaster

New research suggests that the Chicxulub crater, the impact zone of a large asteroid that struck the Earth approximately 65 million years ago, may not have been the disaster that kick-started the K-T Event, as is often believed.

According to ScienceDaily, "The enduringly popular theory that the Chicxulub crater holds the clue to the demise of the dinosaurs, along with some 65 percent of all species 65 million years ago, is challenged in a paper to be published in the Journal of the Geological Society on April 27, 2009.

"The newest research, led by Gerta Keller of Princeton University in New Jersey, and Thierry Adatte of the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, uses evidence from Mexico to suggest that the Chicxulub impact predates the K-T boundary by as much as 300,000 years."

If this is true than it raises serious questions as to the asteroid-impact hypothesis and the extinction of the dinosaurs, and reopens the question as to what really killed off these magnificent creatures. Of course, more information is needed before anything is made factual.

Evolutionary "Missing Link" Discovered in China
Date: Tuesday, April 21, 2009 - 22:36 PM (Eastern Time)
Author: beeurd

Palaeontologists in Jiayuguan, China have discovered fossils believed to be an ancestor of Tyrannosaurus rex.

Named Xiongguanlong baimoensis, the fossils date from the mid-Cretaceous period, and appear to fit within the 40 million year gap in the fossil record that separates two known groups of tyrannosaurs.

The new fossils, which suggest an adult size of 270kg, have features in common with both earlier and later tyrannosaurs and experts hope they will help shed light on the evolutionary lineage of T rex.

The Last Two Michael Crichton Novels
Date: Wednesday, April 8, 2009 - 3:41 AM (Eastern Time)
Author: Tyrannosaur

Michael Crichton's estate has released two new books for publishing.

The first, one of few Crichton novels to have an authentically historical basis, will be released on November 24th. Set in 1665 Jamaica, "Pirate Latitudes" explores how pirates operated, navigated the perilous shallow seas in the Caribbean, and links between the New World, Caribbean, and Spain.

Apparently written around the same time as "NEXT," this book was discovered on Crichton's home computer. Along with "Pirate Latitudes," was another book of a two book deal Crichton had made of which"NEXT" is the first. This three-quarters finished "techno-thriller" novel has yet to be titled and very little information has been disclosed.

The publisher states they have no real idea what it is about as of yet, but that along with it were discovered many notes and a co-author is being commissioned to finish the novel for its late 2010 release.

Ms. Nesbit, Crichton's agent of 40 years who discovered the files, said that he left “many, many electronic files,” and that there could well be other novels or unfinished material. “We haven’t begun to really go through it all."

It seems almost fitting that even after Crichton's death, his technology has thrilled us with new novels. With so many twists, turns, and surprise endings, Crichton would be proud.
