Jurassic C.S.I.: In Living Color
What colors were dinosaurs? We know little about their actual color, and now maverick dino detective Dr. Phil Manning tries to find out more. He utilizes one of the world's most precise imaging machines which uses highly focused beams one million times stronger than a chest X-ray to search for traces of color pigments chemistry in fossils. But first, Phil uses the synchrotron on a magpie-sized bird with teeth, the archaeopteryx, and reveals tremendous detail.
