What does a scientist do all day? The Smithsonian's Matthew Carrano explains his job as a paleontologist, what he hopes to discover, and why he made a career out of dinosaurs.
I was at the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center, and after making contact with one of the Paleontologists who work there, got a full tour, even in the back where they clean and replicate fossils.
reminds me of this lovely song, “i am a paleontologist” by they might be giants: youtube.com/watch?v=B7zo2zY1Zqg
Q: What does a scientist do all day?
A: I can’t answer that yet. I’m still waiting for funding.
