One of my favorite covers from one of my favorite publications. It is a publication that surely represents the best of us. The inquiring human mind and the joy of discovery and learning. I am sure there are any number of reasons the discovery of the remains of a little creature that lived on this planet three point three million years ago is of outstanding scientific significance and goes some way to explaining the evolutionary arch between then and now. It is the smile that gets me. The thought that we might be the only living things in the universe that can actually smile and the equally stunning thought that we have been able to do it for millions and millions of years...
               Carry on smiling.
