Quotes

"I'm interested in Chinese culture but I've never been to China before. So this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me" he said
"[T]here is a great deal of basic science yet to be explored and any revised research portfolio needs to be balanced and not merely focused on one end of the translational spectrum" he said. "Thus, funders simply must coordinate their efforts."
"Although our research suggests that dinosaur communities were particularly vulnerable at the time the asteroid hit, there is nothing to suggest that dinosaurs were doomed to extinction,” Richard Butler of the University of Birmingham, said in the statement. “Without that asteroid, the dinosaurs would probably still be here, and we very probably would not.”"
"The dinosaurs were victims of colossal bad luck," said Dr Steve Brusatte of the University of Edinburgh's School of GeoSciences. "Not only did a giant asteroid strike, but it happened at the worst possible time, when their ecosystems were vulnerable. Our new findings help clarify one of the enduring mysteries of science."
