Airships - In Focus - The Atlantic
The U.S. Navy’s dirigible Los Angeles, upended after a turbulent wind from the Atlantic flipped the 700-foot airship on its nose at Lakehurst, New Jersey, in 1926. The ship slowly righted itself and there were no serious injuries to the crew of 25. (AP Photo)

As heretical as it may sound, I’m all tyrant’d out, after 5 days of Just Tyrant Things. And so, here’s a megalosaur instead.
Eustreptospondylus oxoniensis was average-sized by theropod standards, measuring at what seems to be a constant standard for various non-avian theropods I bring up, of 6 meters (or 20 feet if you’re still using the vastly superior[citation needed] Imperial system). As the specific name implies, it’s known from the Oxford Clay of England, a marine formation of Middle Jurassic age. Imagined commonly as a beach-combing scavenger/hunter which populated tropical island chains, it was first brought to the public consciousness by “Walking With Dinosaurs”, the famous BBC series.
As a relative of the classic dinosaur Megalosaurus, its classification has always been a little bit muddy—you can blame the chronic wastebasket taxon its cousin was for that. It may-or-may-not comprise its own subfamily within Megalosauridae, though other analyses have placed it closer to the African megalosaur Afrovenator.

<sigh>


Say what you will about this series’ accuracy—I maintain that this scene was awesome. :D

It was so ridiculous it was awesome, don’t you think?

Absolutely

“Forty-five years ago, while the world watched as one, the United States of America set foot on the moon. It was a seminal moment not just in our country’s history, but the history of all humankind.” —President Obama on meeting with the Apollo 11 crew and their families to mark the 45th anniversary of the first lunar landing.

In these clips they can been seen planting the U.S. Flag on the lunar surface and experimenting with various types of movement in the Moon’s lower gravity, including loping strides and kangaroo hops.
