The Brain Scoop: Bending Fossils: Experiment in Paleontology (Harvard Adventures, Part 3)
To conclude our Harvard Adventures mini-series, Dr. Stephanie Pierce shows us the experimentation part of their research, and how she and her collaborators are able to apply those same techniques to fossil animals through the use of 3D modeling software. It is wild!
As Stephanie says in the end of the video, right now is one of the most exciting times to be a paleontologist. Never before has technology been so adaptable to bend (pun) to the creative whims of researchers. How neat is that? Neat.
