Paleontology is Awesome

It's not just dinosaurs that are cool—the people who study them are too! Paleontologists are like treasure-hunters, explorers, forensic scientists, time travelers, and champion puzzle-builders all rolled into one. Paleontology also has a little-known futuristic side: professional dino-lovers use everything from electron microscopes to particle accelerators to shed light on the lives of these ancient creatures. SCIENCE FTW.
