    A rare dinosaur fossil has been restored by an international team of scientists — led by Dr. Stephan Lautenschlager from the University of Bristol and including Dr. Lindsay Zanno from the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences — using high-resolution X-ray computed tomography (CT scanning) and digital visualization techniques. The work is described this week in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.

From The Wheel, an advanced spaceship is now being launched to distant Mars under the command of Colonel Samuel T. Merritt. Along for the ride are his son Captain Barney, a few crew members, a disgruntled stowaway, a threadbare Bible and … a .45 pistol. I got a bad feeling ‘bout this.
