Microbes and Dinosaurs

Science writer Carl Zimmer recently gave a lecture at the American Society of Microbiology meeting in which he discussed his perspective on telling the stories of science. He opens his discussion by talking about, of all things, Anchiornis and the recent discoveries about feather color in dinosaurs. Why? Because they're such a great gateway drug into other scientific topics.
