Some Worry Public Display Could Harm Lucy's Bones

Ethiopians in Ethiopia haven't had a chance to see the "real" fossils of Lucy in their homeland, but officials in Texas are preparing to display the "real" Lucy skeletons in Houston and other cities starting in '06. Houston is hoping to make a nice buck (over $4 million) from the exhibit too...

Bummer for Ethiopia!
Great for Houston...

Read more about the excitement:

The first public display of Lucy, a 3.2 million-year-old fossil discovered in Ethiopia, is scheduled for Houston in 2006, to the chagrin of some anthropologists who fear the project will harm the partial skeleton.

Where's the "real" Lucy? Read on...

UPDATE: Houston Officials Head to Ethiopia to Close the Deal
The plan, according to Houston officials is to see the Ethiopian National Palace and National Museum. Lucy's fossilized bones are kept there, secured from public view." More on the trip.

Read about what scientists found a year ago in the Afar region:
The fossilized skulls of two adults and one child discovered in the Afar region of eastern Ethiopia have been dated at 160,000 years, making them the oldest known fossils of modern humans, or Homo sapiens.

The "world's oldest kitchen" is discovered in Gona. READ Dr. Quade's interview on his findings in Gona. Dr. Quade is a faculty member in the Geosciences Department at the University of Arizona.
