Many Congratulations

Many congratulations to the Authors of this immensely important Paper.

I commend them for choosing to publish this Paper in a cutting edge Journal like PLoS ONE.

As PLoS's Dr Chris Surridge pointed out two days ago here, this is a significantly important Paper on a number of levels.

Personally, I can't think of a more brilliant example of the major significance of the societal benefits of Open Access publishing.

As Dr Surridge said in his blog:- "Millions of people will read about the dinosaur in their newspapers throughout the World". I would also add that probably even more will learn about all of this via the biggest reference library in the world - the Internet !!

Major hat-tip to all.

Thanks for the compliments. The work on this dinosaur was a real team effort, from the sands of the Sahara to a lab in Chicago, to the CT and prototyping facilities in many cities. You are correct that people in Niger, one of the poorest places in the world, can read about the dinosaur that bears the name of their country. Go open acccess!
