All right. Next story, at an amber market in the Asia country of Myanmar, which is also known as Burma, a Chinese paleontologist recently found something amazing, the tail of what scientists say is a 99-million-year-old dinosaur. It was frozen in amber, yes, like Jurassic Park. The paleontologist said the seller might not have realized the importance of the find, but he didn`t raise the price.
Researchers believe it was the tail of a sparrow-sized dinosaur from a group called coelurosaurs. And close ups of the tail indicate the animal had feathers instead of scales. One expert says these aren`t quite the Godzilla-style scaly monsters we once thought they were.
Another paleontologist co-published the findings on the specimen in a scientific journal named Current Biology. He says it`s the first time that part of a mummified dinosaur skeleton has been found. He calls it a once in a lifetime discovery with the finest details visible and in three dimensions.
What you`re about to see now is kind of the opposite of the mannequin challenge. It has to do with kinematics, the study of motion. A technologically advanced way to document the movements of people, animals or objects is to use motion captured cameras. They`re specialized, higher end, mot-cap systems can cause tens of thousands of dollars.
And you might have seen them used for movies, sports, computer programs or especially video games, this technology is also moving forward in the fields of engineering and medicine.
