NSF Article: “Researchers Discover Relative of Best-Known Human Ancestor”

Very interesting NSF article about the recently-found relative of our earliest known ancestor, dubbed “Lucy.” I love this shiznit. Eat it up.

Within the coarsening base of an ancient mudstone exposure in the Afar Region of Ethiopia, researchers say they found evidence that provides new information about the best-known early human ancestor, Australopithecus afarensis.

Lucy is no longer alone.
