An Archaeological Controversy

Could early hominids have been walking around in Germany 9.7 million years ago? I doesn’t seem likely, and it’s a bit much to derive from two teeth.
Here is the slightly “fringe” article (warning: ad clogged website)…

9.7 Million-Year-Old Teeth Found in Germany Belong to Hominin Only Known To Have Existed in Africa 4 Million Years Later

And here is a response from National Geographic…
Ancient Teeth Found in Europe Belonged to Mystery Primate

Thanks Mark!

The 2017 Solar Eclipse

I have discussed my adventure trip to Kentucky to see this year’s eclipse. Here are two videos of the event I found interesting…
First, a video from on of my favorite Youtube channels, Veritasium.

Secondly, a video from another favorite channel, Smarter Every Day. Note, they worked the math out to do this
by themselves.
