Greetings, fellow Homo sapiens. Our species is the only remaining member of the genus of upright, walking apes known as Homo. Where did we come from? Our history just got a whole lot more complicated (in a good way) thanks to some incredible new fossils unearthed in South Africa over the past few years. I got to visit them, and the scientists who discovered them, to learn their story and ours. Meet your cousin: Homo naledi #homonaledi #humanorigins #evolution

An enormous thank you to:
-Lee Berger, Marina Elliott, and Becca Peixotto for letting me meet Neo and for explaining their science!
-The Republic of South Africa for allowing these fossils to be on display in the USA. This was really special.
-The Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, Texas. Origins: Fossils From the Cradle of Humankind will be on display through early 2020: https://www.perotmuseum.org/exhibits-and-films/traveling-exhibition/origins.html
