Theatre Puget Sound - HOME How do we know what color dinosaurs were? - Len Bloch The dinosaurs were a large group of animals that first appeared in the fossil record about 227 million years ago. Then, about 65 million years ago, most of the dinosaurs went extinct, but one group– the birds– continues to thrive. The era during which the non-avian dinosaurs lived is called the Mesozoic. The Mesozoic is divided into three periods called the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous; the bird-like dinosaurs didn't appear until the Jurassic, and they continued into the Cretaceous. Scientists argue about whether feathers evolved at the same time as the dinosaurs, or whether the first feathers appeared on the first bird-like dinosaurs during the Jurassic. Feathered dinosaurs have played an important role in the history of science. In more recent years, a number of dinosaur feathers have been discovered, mainly in China.

Science News Deep Blue (chess computer) Deep Blue After Deep Thought's 1989 match against Kasparov, IBM held a contest to rename the chess machine and it became "Deep Blue", a play on IBM's nickname, "Big Blue". After a scaled down version of Deep Blue, Deep Blue Jr., played Grandmaster Joel Benjamin, Hsu and Campbell decided that Benjamin was the expert they were looking for to develop Deep Blue's opening book, and Benjamin was signed by IBM Research to assist with the preparations for Deep Blue's matches against Garry Kasparov. On February 10, 1996, Deep Blue became the first machine to win a chess game against a reigning world champion (Garry Kasparov) under regular time controls. However, Kasparov won three and drew two of the following five games, beating Deep Blue by a score of 4–2 (wins count 1 point, draws count ½ point). The match concluded on February 17, 1996. In 2003 a documentary film was made that explored these claims. Notes Jump up ^ Saletan, William (2007-05-11). Bibliography
