Teenager discovers fossil of baby dinosaur
NBC News: In 2009, a teenager discovered the youngest fossil skeleton of a baby dinosaur that lived more than 70 million years ago. The 17-year-old spotted a bone from the skeleton on territory at the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in southern Utah.
Paleontologists walked right past the bones before the student, Kevin Terris, found them. “He was just in the right place at the right time, looking in the right direction,” says Andrew Farke, curator of the Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology at The Webb Schools.

The love of reading just starts with a spark.
