Could you outrun a Tyrannosaurus rex?

Just how quick was the great tyrant lizard, exactly? Experts in biomechanics think she was pretty damn quick – but still probably not as fast as you think. » 4/05/13 11:51am 4/05/13 11:51am

Could you outrun a Tyrannosaurus rex?

Even if we can't observe how fast dinosaurs ran in real life (at least for now), there's nothing that says we can't do our damnedest to figure it out experimentally. After all, if dinosaurs do make their big comeback, questions like "how fast do they run?" and "wait a minute...how fast can I run?" are precisely what… » 11/23/12 11:00am 11/23/12 11:00am

Tyrannosaurus rex was much, much bigger than we thought

An international team of researchers has used three-dimensional laser scans to determine that Tyrannosaurus rex were likely 30% more massive that we once thought — and a whole lot hungrier. Be honest, now...how many of you woke up this morning thinking you'd hear the words "three-dimensional laser" and "Tyrannosaurus… » 10/13/11 3:15pm 10/13/11 3:15pm
