Scanning with Dinosaurs
The latest offering of the BBC's Walking with Dinosaurs will be gracing our screens (in the UK) this Christmas. The filming on how the latest science is informing such animated dinosaur reconstructions has also started.
Showing how a laser can capture a dinosaur...even a T. rex!
Hopefully another batch of dinosaurs romping across our screens will spur another generation of palaeontologists.
