If you're reading this blog, chances are that you were sent here by one of the many news articles about our collaborative work at the Cerro Ballena site in Chile. Last week, both Science and Nature reported on our work in their respective online news editions, with interviews live from the field. These articles complemented AP's excellent reporting on the site by Ian James, picked by venues such as the New York Times, NPR, and The Atlantic (which also featured one of Adam Metallo's snazzy time-lapse videos).
Today, Nature's printed edition featured an action shot of team member Vincent Rossi (Smithsonian 3D Digitization Program staff member) scanning one of the more complete fossil baleen whales from Cerro Ballena, featured extensively on this blog (and in the media) last week. Congratulations, Vince! Getting your name printed in Nature is a rare thing; getting your mug there -- sublime!
