Arts, sciences and humanities build healthier, more livable, vital communities. They are essential to a strong education system. They contribute enormously to our economy.
Our guest tonight on Inquiry is JOHN A. LONG, Strategic Professor in Paleontology at Flinders University in Adelaide. Professor Long has made one of the most amazing and unexpected discoveries in paleontology: evidence of internal fertilization in prehistoric fish that lived 380 million years ago. This means these ancient creatures were not externally fertilizing eggs like many fish today do, but instead were having sex. If you have ever wondered about sex long, long ago, and even how dinosaurs “did it”, tune in and listen to Professor long discuss his new book THE DAWN OF THE DEED: THE PREHISTORIC ORIGINS OF SEX.
