Ten years ago, scientists discovered a well-preserved set of dinosaur remains in China. This dinosaur, which walked on Earth about 125 million years ago, had feathers and was about the same size as a turkey-but don't be fooled. This dino's bite was a lot worse than a turkey's gobble.
The discovery a “central character in the story of human evolution” is named the scientific breakthrough of 2009.
