Today's Google Doodle features hominid evolution!

Here at BEACON, we’re of course excited to see today’s Google Doodle (archived here) celebrating Lucy, the Australopithecus afarensis fossil discovered in 1973. However, BEACON’s Education Director Louise Mead points out, “I usually love the Google doodles, but the one for today, acknowledging the fossil Lucy, Australopithecus afarensis, does much to contribute to misconceptions about a linear evolution. They need to add the branches representing common ancestry!”

Hey Google - we fixed it for you!
