‘Phil Tippett: Mad Dreams and Monsters’ Review: A Loving Look at a Practical Effects Master [Fantastic Fest 2019]

Writer/director duo Gill...

The iconic velociraptor scene in 'Jurassic Park' would have been different — and unscientific — if Spielberg had gotten his way, the film's science advisor says

In an iconic scene in the Hollywood blockbuster "Jurassic Park," velociraptors hunt down two children in a kitchen. One raptor fogs up the glass on the kitchen door as it eyes its prey — a sign that these dinosaurs were warm-blooded, not cold-blooded. According to the film's science adviser, the raptors in that scene almost had forked tongues. He cautioned director Steven Spielberg against it. A forked tongue would have been scientifically inaccurate, since these dinosaurs were more like birds...

Humans Crawled Through a Cave 14,000 Years Ago. We Can Still See Their Perfectly Preserved Footprints.

About 14,000 years ago, a party of five barefoot people -- two adults, one preteen and two children -- walked and even crawled through a dark passageway in a cave, according to a new study that analyzed the hand- and footprints these individuals left behind.To light their way, these late Stone Age people likely burned bundles of pine (Pinus) sticks, which archaeologists also found in the cave, known as Grotta della Bàsura, in northern Italy.The cave's ceiling was so low, that at one part, t...
