Dr Stephen Brusatte, Chancellor's Fellow in Vertebrate Palaentology, delivers the second 2014 Science on a Winter's Evening lecture entitled, Tyrannosaur Discoveries. In this lecture, Dr Brusatte introduces "Pinocchio rex" and other newly discovered tyrannosaurs, and describes how palaeontologists discover fossils, using cutting- edge techniques to study dinosaur evolution. Recorded on 4 December 2014 at the University of Edinburgh's Michael Swann Building.
The universe is incredibly old, astoundingly vast and populated by trillions of planets -- so where are all the aliens? Astronomer Stephen Webb has an explanation: we're alone in the universe. In a mind-expanding talk, he spells out the remarkable barriers a planet would need to clear in order to host an extraterrestrial civilization -- and makes a case for the beauty of our potential cosmic loneliness. "The silence of the universe is shouting, 'We're the creatures who got lucky,'" Webb says.

"In and Out of Africa—the Horned Giants That Ate Our Ancestors" Lecture by Chris Brochu, UI associate professor of geoscience. Recorded November 2012 at the University of Iowa Museum's Biosphere Discovery Hub. The Department of Geoscience is a unit of the UI College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Brochu specializes in vertebrate paleontology and phylogenetics, which are evolutionary relationships between organisms. His research combines the study of modern animals and the fossil record to demonstrate how evolutionary relationships can be determined through time. He is an expert in crocodiles and travels the world to research specimens in museum collections.

Jack Horner, renowned paleontologist and consultant on the Jurassic Park series drops by Google to discuss "Jurassic World", glow in the dark unicorns, and the "chickenosaurus".
Jack Horner is a professor at Montana State University, the Curator of Paleontology at the Museum of the Rockies, and has made such important contributions to paleontology as providing some of the first clear evidence dinosaurs cared for their young, leading the discovery of the one of the largest Tyrannosaurus rex skeletons, known as "B. Rex", and is currently leading the way to engineer a "chickenosaurus."
