Broome’s Jurassic Park by John Pickrell

For millennia, the tracks left by dinosaurs were a part of the indigenous dreaming. But a new generation of scientifically-minded custodians, have opened up the trackways to palaeontologists. It has unveiled a rich new chapter in Australia’s dinosaur history.

The Search for Cosmic Strings: Cracks in the Cosmos by Cathal O’Connell

If you freeze a glass of water, it will never forms one continuous perfect crystal-- there are always defects, tiny cracks invisible to the eye that separate adjacent regions of ice. Physicists think the same thing happened during the creation of the universe, forming cracks, called 'cosmic strings' running through the cosmos.

Gravitational wave observatories, like LIGO, have recently transformed the once hypothetical notion of gravitational waves into a reality. They promise to do the same for cosmic strings, by listening out for the universe-quaking crack when two of them collide.
