Found Ancient Remains Of Mixins Helped More Accurately Determine Its Evolutionary Development

The fossil, the age of which is 100 million years old, will help answer questions about when these ancient, not having jaws of fish moved away from the line, which gave rise to modern jaw vertebrates, including bony fish and people.

In the past few years, Paleontologists have increasingly use complex visualization methods, but this study has become one of the few, where synchrotron scanning used to identify chemical elements in fossil. Miyashita believes that this method can also be useful in identifying the authenticity of the sample. Any attempt to fake the ancient fossils leaves chemical traces at the facility, which, with synchrotron scan, are glowing like Christmas decorations.
