Over a hundred years ago, searching for fingerprints became routine in crime scene investigation. In the intervening years the tools of forensic investigation have greatly evolved. Host Ben Kieffer speaks to Iowa State University Mechanical Engineer Daniel Attinger about his research for the U.S.
We listen back to Ben’s conversation with Lee Berger, American Paleoanthropologist who in 2010 discovered the bones of a new hominid species that lived almost two million years ago. Later, researchers from UI and ISU discuss the historic find.
