Worlds older muscular animal
« on: August 27, 2014, 09:26:44 PM »
They found some fossils in NF that show the age of the first muscle fibers in nature. An important find indeed.

Now if only they would send some archaeologists to investigate the senate!

Its the out of the way places that yield these amazing scientific discoveries. I wonder what else is waiting out there? I hope the Feds or the provincial government has a plan to further explore and preserve this unique site.

I actually studied geology for a while, and the geology of Newfoundland is really unique. Its the same rock as Europe but when the Atlantic split in two zillions of years ago, somehow NF ended up on our side. Hurray for that!
