Pteranodon is a genus of pterosaurs which included some of the largest known flying reptiles with wingspans over 6 meters. They lived about 80 million years ago in North America in present day Kansas, Alabama, Nebraska, Wyoming, and South Dakota.
The name from Greek means 3 horned face. This dinosaur was about 30 feet long, 10 feet tall and weighed 4 to 6 tons. Stout limbs supported its girth but it was unlikely the dinosaur could move very quickly. Like a modern-day rhinoceros, it probably spent much of its time grazing on plant matter.
The stegosaurus was an armored dinosaur that lived about 150 million years ago. It had a heavily rounded back, short forelimbs, head held low to the ground and a stiffened tail held high in the air. The double plates along its back were most likely used for defense and may also have regulated its temperature. Stegosaurus weighed about 6,800 pounds and was 9 feet tall.
The species Tyrannosaurus rex (rex meaning "king" in Latin), commonly abbreviated to T. rex, is one of the most well-represented of the large theropods. Tyrannosaurus was a bipedal carnivore with a massive skull balanced by a long, heavy tail. Relative to its large and powerful hind limbs, Tyrannosaurus fore limbs were short but unusually powerful for their size and had two clawed digits. It was among the last non-avian dinosaurs to exist before the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event.
InSight, short for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport, is a robotic lander designed to study the deep interior of the planet Mars. InSight launched on May 5, 2018 and successfully landed on Mars on Nov. 26, 2018.
Its finding are expected to shed light on the processes responsible for the formation of Mars, Earth, and even rocky exoplanets more than 4 billion years ago.
The Hogwarts Express runs between London, Kings Cross Station Platform 9 ¾ and Hogsmeade Station in the Harry Potter movie franchise. The Express dutifully carries students to and from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry at the start and end of every term. Originally steam fitted by the Muggles (non-magic people) who built it, the Hogwarts Express now runs exclusively on magic.
