Vacuuming the dinosaur

Another technician in the Fossil Lab, this one separating dinosaur bones from plaster, if I recall correctly.


The “dinosaur exhibit” -- as everybody calls it, although it’s much more than that -- in the newly reopened fossil hall at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History is fascinating.

Best to view in "Original" because other versions resized by Pbase are decidedly unsharp.

That lab must be a great opportunity to see what happens behind the scene.
