Long read but incredibly interesting writing about perhaps the greatest fossil find ever that records the end of the dinosaurs and rise of mammals.

Saw your title and figured it was this piece. Started reading it last night but haven't finished. Incredible. The computer simulation of what happened...man.

All of it is interesting, the detective work, the protagnist biography, the politics of academia, the cataclysm and the science behind understanding. It's great science but also great human interest read. But yeah its long.....lol
