No place in the world, contains the same number and diversity of fossils of the Jurassic period.
A team of paleontologists led by Dr. Juan Garcia Massini announced the opening of the largest Park of Jurassic period fossils in Patagonia in southern Argentina. The place of burial of the fossils, which were uncovered by recent erosion, it was discovered four years ago and until now was kept secret.
Dr Massini, a geologist from regional research centre reported that this plot is in the area of the massif the Deseado in the province of Santa Cruz in Patagonia.
“This is a unique discovery. Found bones and fossils of flora, micro – and macro-organisms. In addition, the organisms were buried very quickly by mud and fine earth, says Massini. – You can even see how the fungi, cyanobacteria, and worms were moved when they were still alive”.
Excavations are carried out on an area of about 60 thousand square kilometers, and the Massini amazed at how well preserved this area, which is 140 million years old. Continue reading
Many gold mining companies will alter the natural landscape of Mongolia. The extraction of gold disappear hundreds of rivers and lakes, and the Mongolia slowly turning into a desert.
In addition to the official production companies from Russia, Japan, China (from 23 countries), the main problem are the “black diggers”. They are called “ninjas” because of their appearance: they wear behind green metal pots, which are similar to heroes of the popular cartoon about the ninja turtles. Pictures of David gray, Reuters.

How much mystery lurking in the bowels of the earth, no one knows for sure. But every day somewhere in the world some scientist finds some interesting pieces left in earth history. Such findings often do not resolve all the issues that were to the past, but also creates many more. How did the world all have long known the works of many historians. But, as it turns out, there are archaeological excavations, the so-called most ancient artifacts that either make adjustments, or simply change the facts, so many years noble as the truth.
What artifacts are the most interesting? For decades, mines in South Africa workers are wonderful areas. They are quite small, about an inch in diameter. Some of them are present in the grooves, parallel to each other, embossed around the equator. Composition and material from which they are made, there are two types of such findings. The first is a balls out metal patterns solid color blue with white streaks. The second is a hollow balls, filled with a spongy material. Find such areas in the rock, which age more than 2.8 billion years before mankind is still far. Who created them remains a mystery. Continue reading
