I tend to keep up on what's going on in the science community, although I guess it makes sense considering I'm studying to be a scientist. On May 1, 2009 soft tissue was found in an 80m year old hadrosaur femur. This falls in line with only a hand-full of other soft tissue finds by Mary H. Schweitzer at NC State University (my school). The tissue found contains osteocytes, the cells used to build bones. You can read the article at sciencenews.org located at the bottom of this blog.
