Malcolm 's theories and predictions serve as a warning for a society increasingly dependent on new scientific developments. Although genetically engineered dinosaurs are likely to never happen, “Jurassic Park” is a reminder of what could go wrong with unchecked science. The relationship between dinosaurs and birds is also heavily featured in the book. At the time “Jurassic Park” was written, new evidence had just suggested that the relation between dinosaurs and birds is much closer than previously thought. Allan Grant makes several remarks on the structural similarities between the birds and dinosaurs and the velociraptors are given particularly bird-like features.
When the Mesozoic Era ended, most or a majority of the dinosaurs were extinct due to a catastrophic event that is still unknown to us today. Dinosaurs walked in an upright position, some dinosaurs used two legs, other used four to walk and move around their environments. Dinosaurs came in an array of sizes. Humans were able to examine the characteristics of this dinosaurs via their fossils. The fossils were found nearly every continent.
Another cause for it was that the Morton Thiokol had overruled their own engineers. If they had listened to their engineers and had waited to launch Challenger until the weather had warmed up, the explosion would have never happened. An effect from the explosion, was that NASA was required to come up with a new design for their shuttles, hoping to eliminate the chances of having another disaster like the Challenger. The Challenger Space Shuttle explosion was one of the worst disasters ever in manned spaceflight. It was the first in which American astronauts had lost their lives.
The bones of the Kennewick man dates back to 18 thousand years old. This man’s skeleton is the most complete skeleton researchers have found in North America. Scientist think that this skeleton is too important and should not be given back to the Native American tribe. Scientist’s have taken so much data about his skeleton that it took 9 years to publish it all.
The Piltdown Man was a paleoanthropological hoax in which bone pieces were exhibited as the fossilized remains of a formerly obscure early human. These pieces comprised of parts of a skull and jawbone, said to have been gathered in 1912 from a rock pit at Piltdown, East Sussex, England. In 1912 Piltdown Man hit the news. Confirmation of the evolutionary 'missing link ' between primates and people had been found, in Britain.
Instead, it turns out, the worms have special root-like structures that attaches to the bones and dispenses an acid that dissolves the whale bones and extracts the nutrients. Although, the zombie worm is not the only interesting deep sea creacher. The deep sea jellyfish for example, are just as fascinating as the zombie worms. They live about 820 meters below the surface of the ocean (Jonssen).
They also found that the teeth appeared to have been filed down and the front part of the jaw was broken off. Apart from that, the stains on the bones were shown to have been made. To this day, we have not discovered who was behind the Piltdown man Hoax. National pride all but blinded some of the scientist in that era but some also fell victims of groupthink and conformation
Scientists are saying that the earth is currently experiencing a sixth extinction caused by human impacts and this affects large animals, specialized organisms, island organisms, and organisms harvested by people. This shows that biodiversity is being threatened by human activities.
Nobody knows how devils tower was formed. Scientist are now researching to see what its components are. They have a lot of theories they just haven’t found the right one yet. Another theory is that inside it is an extinct volcano, another of many (Jason Chavis). It seems likely that it could be.
This article stood out to me because I used to want to be a Paleontologist and I am also a big fan of the Jurassic Park movies. This article takes a look at the Velociraptor and the genetic makeup as well as phenotypes that it displays. A recent discovery showed that the real Velociraptor was a lapdog-sized predator covered in feathers. In Jurassic park the velociraptors are shown as raptors that are bigger than humans and have a rough scaly skin. If you look at the arm bones of Velociraptor you can see a row of bumps, identical in size and shape to the quill knobs of living birds: the anchor points for big wing feathers...”
Moreau is performing horrific experiments, using vivisection to craft animals into human beings. Worse, the island is now home to an entire society of these creatures, some more dangerous than others. Think Jurassic Park only without the advantage of electric fences and Samuel L. Jackson. Well, science has given us, the people of Earth, some truly wonderful gifts over the centuries.
In the scientific article, “Ancient mass extinction may have shrunk Earth’s creatures” by Sid Perkins, Perkins explains that the mass extinction that occurred millions of years ago may have a correlation to the size of organisms on Earth’s surface in the present. Perkins states that long ago organisms used to be the size of school buses, but information from a new study shows that the mass extinction caused most of the vertebrate species to shrink to the size of a human forearm. Lauren Sallan, a paleobiologist at the University of Pennsylvania, states that the one-hundred thousand year long cold spell which occurred about three-hundred and fifty-nine million years ago during the end of the Devonian Period caused the growth of glaciers. This
The 4-card task 1. A situation where we think logically would be that dinosaurs exist. You can say it 's logical that dinosaurs exist because they 're are bones and fossils that support the evidence, as well as our technology that can access the time period with carbon dating. 2. My mom had knee and back surgery it 's logical to think that she 's not in a good shape to work like before.
Since ancient times, full moons have been associated with odd or incomprehensible occurrences that can only be explained by the supernatural. These events have prompted countless experiments and endless research, but maybe such problem’s answers are simply out of this world. It has been reported that many people and animals that have contracted Lyme disease feel discomfort and the worsening of their symptoms during full moons. An answer as to why this occurs is beyond scientific understanding, but what if the answer is as simple as society 's location, or more so planet? If a moon base were to be created, then the bacteria that causes Lyme disease, Borrelia Burgdorferi, could be further researched, the base would help society learn how the bacteria
Georgios Kepertis Earth 102-6: Death of the Dinosaurs Paper 4: Permian-Triassic Extinction 12-7-2015 The Permian-Triassic Extinction Event: When Life on Earth Almost Ended An event that marked a great transition, an event so overwhelming that most creatures on Earth could not handle it; its power so immense that even plants and insects were almost eradicated from the face our planet. If it were to happen today, humans would most certainly be defenseless against the brute forces of nature, and even though it happened roughly 252 million years ago, it is still the most catastrophic period in time known to man.
