Urgent security update

staff:

Bad news. A major vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr.

We have no evidence of any breach and, like most networks, our team took immediate action to fix the issue.

But this…

march to Versailles and kidnap the royal family

have your brother wage war on your husband’s kingdom

stab the influential head of a media organisation while he’s taking a bath

create a new calendar

create a new religion

send your best friend to the guillotine

withdraw from public life for a month

accuse all of your colleagues of plotting against you

take advantage of the chaos around you and rise to become emperor of France

Meet Dimorphodon, the toothy pterosaur.
Discovered in the 1820s on the coast of southern England, by a young woman, Mary Anning, famed for her fossil-finding abilities, Dimorphodon earned its names for its distinctive dentition. Dimorphodon, the genus name, means “two-formed tooth” and refers to the animal’s two types of teeth: Long, curved fangs that jut from the front of the jaws, and a row of short pointed teeth that lies behind.
Learn more about this pterosaur.

AMNH’s Pterosaur exhibit looks super cool, online or in person.

Think Air travels. March 1, 2014.

Working with our Unmanned Aerial Vehicle at Iztaccíhuatl - Popocatépetl National Park in the State of Mexico. 
We generated basic cartography for our trip (not my best work, I apologize) and were able to get a few nice shots before it crashed from about 140 meters from the ground. Thanks to the fact that we were surrounded by volcanic ashes, no serious damage was done, but we were unable to continue our mission. 
The third image is a picture taken from our UAV previous to the crash. We are still trying to figure out what happened. Fun fact: the only two times a UAV of ours has crashed have been near this volcano. 
A few pictures of the traveling crew. 
We must return to this amazing place soon and finish the work we started.
