More sediba remains!

Evidently, there are more bones of Australopithecus sediba sitting in a big rock at Lee Berger's lab in the University of Witwatersrand.  In an interesting twist, National Geographic is helping them set up a lab where the preparation of the new fossils will be streamed live on the internet.  It's kind of a neat gesture of open access.  Read all about it in the press release:
