Slaying the Iron Maiden: Mary Schweitzer's Vulnerability

Paleontologist Mary Schweitzer, the Iron Maiden
Co-authorKevin Anderson's book, Echoes of the Jurassic: Discoveries of dinosaur soft-tissue of a triceratops soft tissue paper, Kevin Anderson, challenges Dr. Mary Schweitzer's claim that biological iron has the ability to preserve dinosaur biological material for tens of millions of years. On Real Science Radio, Bob Enyart and Dr. Anderson, a molecular biologist, describe Schweitzer's two-year experiment, which she then extrapolated to 68 million years, and discuss the many physics and depositional factors that falsify the extraordinary claim of the famed paleontologist, whom RSR amiably refers to as the Maiden.
