First Look: The Smithsonian builds a dinosaur

How do you bring a nearly complete T. rex back to life? You send the fossils to Canada where craftsmen create a creature of steel. Come 2019, the Nation’s T. rex will live at the Smithsonian.

    While I appreciate all the work that has gone into excavating and preparing this wonderful fossil skeleton, nevertheless I fear the installation will be dismaying to those kids who are on Team Triceratops, and who feel that there was at least one dinosaur, generally inoffensive, who could defend itself against Tyrannosaurus rex.
