SciShow Explains Why Mary Anning Was Possibly ‘The Greatest Fossilist in the World’

SciShow (see previously) host Hank Green explains why Mary Anning was possibly “The Greatest Fossilist in the World” in a recent episode. Anning lived from 1799 to 1847 and was one of the earliest to treat fossils as objects of scientific study rather than just collector’s items.

The Stained Glass Driverless Sleeper Car of the Future by Dominic Wilcox

British artist Dominic Wilcox (see previously) has created a design concept for a driverless car with a stained glass exterior that he calls, rather fittingly, the Stained Glass Driverless Sleeper Car of the Future. The car is equipped with a cozy bed and handmade stained glass exterior panels. It is his vision of a car from the year 2059. Wilcox created the car for the Dezeen and MINI Frontiers exhibition which took place at the London Design Festival earlier in September.
