Microraptor: Live Chat with Mark Norell & Mick Ellison

On March 9, the American Museum of Natural History and io9 hosted a live webcast discussion about new dinosaur feather research. The study, by a team of researchers that includes Museum paleontologists, reveals the black iridescent color and detailed feather pattern of Microraptor, a pigeon-sized, four-winged dinosaur that lived about 130 million years ago. Robert Gonzalez, a science reporter at io9, moderated the discussion with two of the new paper's co-authors: Mark Norell, chair of the Museum's Division of Paleontology and Museum senior principal artist Mick Ellison. Norell and Ellison also answered questions submitted through email and Twitter.
