Here is a presentation which is likely to be of interest to ESCONI members. David Voorhees, an Associate Professor in geology at Waubonsee Community College (and our January 2017 General Meeting speaker) organizes a series of talks called "Asset Earth".
The talk is scheduled for September 22nd, 2016. Coincidentally, the September talk is on the Tully monster. Here are the particulars:
X-ray imaging at Argonne National Laboratory: The Case of the Tully Monster Fossil
The presentation will be an overview of Argonne National Laboratory, and a short introduction to imaging at the Advanced Photon Source. The mystery of the Tully Monster fossil, the State Fossil of Illinois, will be presented. We will then describe how the imaging techniques at Argonne helped to place the Tully Monster fossil into the Tree of Life.
