It may be one of the most famous dinosaurs of all time. The trouble is that shortly after being discovered, the Jurassic creature fell into an identity crisis. The name for the long-necked, heavy-bodied herbivore Brontosaurus excelsus—the great "thunder lizard"—was tossed into the scientific wastebasket when it was discovered that the dinosaur wasn't different enough from other specimens to deserve its own distinct genus.
But now, in a paleontological twist, Brontosaurus just might be back. A new analysis of dinosaur skeletons across multiple related species suggests that the original thunder lizard is actually unique enough to resurrect the beloved moniker, according to researchers in the U.K. and Portugal.
Ninkasi Brewing’s latest beer: Ground Control. Last year, the brewery sent six vials of brewer’s yeast into space (77.3 miles up)—this was their second attempt to do so—and brought them back to brew up this Imperial Stout. Brewed with Oregon hazelnuts, star anise, cocoa nibs, and some astro-yeast, Ground Control is a full and flavorful stout. It will be available in select markets on April 13.
