Judgement Day in North Dakota – Really?

9 April 2019. Just been reading about this fossil death assemblage from the last day of the Cretaceous (the day the non-avian dinosaurs died out!) supposedly found in North Dakota.

Hmmm. A geological locality that has restricted access, a New Yorker editorial by the noted science fiction author Douglas Preston, a name – Tanis – where Indiana Jones found the Ark of the Covenant, and a publication date of April 1st.


PS Just looked at Nature this morning. Glad to see they share my reservations.
