Last summer, a team led by the Museum's Provost of Science Michael Novacek and Paleontology Division Chair Mark Norell headed to the Gobi Desert in Mongolia for the annual American Museum of Natural History/Mongolian Academy of Sciences expedition. The group included Aki Watanabe, one of Norell's students at the Museum's Richard Gilder Graduate School, who was recently chosen as a beta-tester for Google Glass and who recorded video on Glass throughout the trip.
In this video, Watanabe shows the process behind another exciting find in the desert. Watch as he goes from spotting bone fragments, to extracting…something big.
Watch Watanabe's previous Google Glass video, in which he finds a fossil dinosaur nest, and shows how he extracts and packages it to return to the lab for further research.
