Adventures in Paleontology

STATE OF AFFAIRS 01/06/10:  You probably know author Homer Hickam for the book Rocket Boys, the basis for the film October Sky. That story was about boyhood aspirations to become a rocket scientist, but Hickam is also drawn to things here on earth - specifically, below the earth. He’s a dinosaur hunter. He'll join us Thursday, along with renowned paleontologist Dr. Jack Horner, whose discovery of the Maiasaura provided the first clear evidence that some dinosaurs cared for their young. He'll be speaking at the University of Kentucky this February. Join us with your paleontology questions!
