Abstract: The article focuses on paleontology and discusses how luck has played a big role in many of the world's great fossil discoveries. It also discusses a new technique that improves the odds of finding ancient bones. It reports on the use of modern computer models that look for hidden patterns in satellite images and generate maps of fossils sites, helping fossil hunters narrow their search.
