An Archaeopteryx fossil discovered 150 million years has been subject to one of the world's most powerful x-ray scans in an attempt to uncover the secrets of this bird ancestor from the past.
About 150 million years ago, an evolutionarily hybrid creature, a dinosaur on its way to becoming a bird, died in what is now Germany, and become fossilized in limestone. About 150 years ago, the fossil of this "dinobird" was discovered and celebrated as proof of Charles Darwin's new theory of evolution."
