A Blog Around The Clock

From SCONC:

The next Sigma Xi Pizza Lunch is noon, THURSDAY. Jan. 22. The title: “Dinosaurs under the microscope: New ways to look at old bones.”

Come hear NC State University paleontologist Mary Schweitzer explain why she rocked science not long ago with evidence that soft tissue survived in a 68-million-year-old dinosaur fossil. Not all fossil experts accept it, but many do. If Schweitzer is correct, she’s found a whole new route to explore the biology and evolutionary lineage of extinct life.

Pizza Lunch is free and open to science journalists and science communicators of all stripes. Feel free to forward this invitation to anyone you would like to see included. RSVPs are required (for a reliable slice count) to cclabby@amsci.org.
