NC State Researcher on 60 Minutes This Sunday

November 12, 2009

Tune in to 60 Minutes this Sunday. Lesley Stahl reports on Jack Horner, the Montana State University paleontologist, and the work he has done with NC State paleontologist Mary Schweitzer. She’s the researcher who has attracted attention for her discovery of soft tissue in dinosaur fossils.

Wired magazine wrote about Schweitzer earlier this year, and we wrote about her in a 2005 cover story.

    I watched 60 minutes last night, Nov. 15, 2009. I was spell bound when I saw what research is being done on dinosaurs. This new find by Dr. Schweitzer is remarkable and it all took place by putting acid on a piece of bone. Wow!!! I am so proud that NCSU has such a person on their staff. Keep up the great research!!!
