    How Do Scientists Date Fossils? Erin DiMaggio and Alka Tripathy-Lang Geologists Erin DiMaggio and Alka Tripathy-Lang, Smithsonian explain techniques for targeting the age of a fossil find https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smithsonian-institution/how-do-scientists-date-fossils-180972391/ Inside the National Museum of Natural History's New Fossil Hall https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/beyond-dinosaurs-secrets-earths-past-180972292/ yours, Paul H.
  2. Sounds like a new type of joke, like lightbulb jokes or something. But this is an article that is part of a five post series to bring attention to the new paleontology exhibit at the Smithsonian. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smithsonian-institution/how-do-paleontologists-find-fossils-180972126/ How do paleontologists find fossils? They look in the museum catalog. How do paleontologists find fossils? They find them fascinating. Hdpff? They don't, they help the fossil find itself. ...
  3. New fossil exhibit at Smithsonian https://www.google.com/amp/s/beta.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/the-smithsonians-renewed-fossil-hall-sends-a-forceful-message-about-climate-change/2019/05/25/bc896212-78d2-11e9-b3f5-5673edf2d127_story.html%3foutputType=amp
  4. Would anyone happen to have contact info for anyone in the fossil field at the Smithsonian/Museum of Natural History? Actually, any museum, or "official"(?) expert of the field--Prehistoric whales/Cetus. Ive tried contacting anyone from the smithsonian website contact form, and through email, but haven't had any luck yet. I know they would be very busy, but as my attempts have only gone to the most general direction, I'm thinking that if the messages even end up getting to the correct people at all, they may not even get the messages for some time.

  6. Opening June 2019 after a long hiatus the Smithsonian is working hard to keep themselves fresh and interesting with a completely new fossil hall. Here is a quick snapshot they released. https://naturalhistory.si.edu/deeptime/ FedEx was used to transport T rex to be refurbished
  7. An very basic article by the Smithsonian answering the question what makes a dinosaur a dinosaur https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/ask-smithsonian-what-is-dinosaur-180967448/
  8. So while we are upset that the main fossil area (the National Fossil Hall) of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History is closed for a multi-year renovation until 2019 (though I'll admit that it did need it...I remembered a lot of the exhibits from my childhood), we were thrilled that there's a new temporary exhibit titled "The Last American Dinosaurs: Discovering a Lost World," which focused on the Hell Creek Formation - where my family will be doing a few dino digs this summer! https://naturalhistory.si.edu/fossil-hall/last-american-dinosaurs/ This exhibit featured fossils from the museum's 2013 expedition. They also had the requisite paleonotologist-on-display:
  9. My family was heading to the zoo today but decided that we would like to go to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History when we approached DC...none of us knew it was National Fossil Day today! Stand by for more photos!
  10. 3D Printing Fossil Whales From Chile

    Sorry if someone has already posted this but I thought this was just too cool to pass up. Researchers from the Smithsonain have used lasers to scan whale skeletons in situ and then used 3D printing technology to recreate the site in the palm of your hand! Wow! Check it out at: http://www.engineering.com/3DPrinting/3DPrintingArticles/ArticleID/5372/The-Smithsonians-3D-Printed-Fossil-Whales.aspx Scroll down the page for the video...
