The photo below is from a video taken a couple of days ago from the cable car in Greenwich in London, and linked here. It does not appear to be a CGI effect, but we cannot be certain about that in this case. It seems unlikely, but it could have been done. If it is real, then it is a sea creature between 40 and 60 feet long with a double dorsal fin. The only such creature ever reported was Giglioli’s Whale, which was observed in 1867 about 1200 miles off the coast of Chile. However, there have never been any repeat observations, and Giglioli’s Whale is not recognized by science.

One of the frustrating aspects that paleontologists face when studying dinosaur fossils is the odd lack of sexual dimorphism in the ancient creatures — being able to tell the difference between male and female individuals based on their physical features. However, one method of telling whether an individual specimen is a female or not has been uncovered, with the confirmation of a Tyrannosaurus rex fossil that came from a pregnant female.

"This analysis allows us to determine the gender of this fossil, and gives us a window into the evolution of egg laying in modern birds," says the study’s lead researcher, North Carolina State University evolutionary biologist Mary Schweitzer.

Last fall, a team of Egyptologists discovered signs that there may be a series of hidden chambers connected to King Tutankhamun’s tomb — hints that were revealed in minute irregularities revealed in high-resolution 3D reproductions of the famous vault. Since then, deeper scans of the wall and the volume behind it have been made, revealing the previously undiscovered chambers there.

Egyptian Antiquities Minister Mamdouh el-Damaty made the announcement at a press conference on Mar 17, including a presentation of the radar scans. However, he declined to speculate on what they might find there, although he admitted that the rooms could hold metal or organic objects.
