Dino Blood and Protein recovered

Seems like Jurassic Park isn't such a far fetched idea. Seems that the scientist who recovered soft tissue from the T Rex in 2005 has not only duplicated it with an "older" dinosaur, but has had it independently verified by several other teams. The dinosaur, a hadrosaur, was excavated from "80 million year old rock" using sterilized tools and encased in glass for their trip back to the labs. You can see a short article in the New Scientist or in the May 1st edition of Science.
