    One of the big talks from this years' SVP (Society of Vertebrate Palaeontology), the flight mechanics of Microraptor gui have been re-evaluated.

    There's a good program around somewhere called 'The four-winger dinosaur', which looked at this, although finding somewhere to watch it online might be a little hard after the death of MegaUpload
