When you were in fourth grade, did you love dinosaurs? Jack Horner, Curator of Paleontology at the Museum of the Rockies and Regent’s Professor of Paleontology at Montana State University in Bozeman illustrates in this talk for TED how scientists got it all wrong to begin with, and how they got it straightened out.
Jack has published more than 170 professional papers, 9 popular books, and more than 100 popular articles. His book Digging Dinosaurs was described by New Scientist Magazine as one of the 250 most important science books of the 20th Century. Jack also directs the largest dinosaur field research program in the world. He was the technical advisor for Steven Spielberg on all of the Jurassic Park movies, and has worked with National Geographic, and The Discovery Channel on numerous dinosaur specials.
Try to feel like a fourth grader again and enjoy this video. Great fun.
