Scientists have discovered a completely new species related to humans. I'm positively fascinated by this discovery. Analysis of the bone fragments they've found shows a relation to Australopithecus, more widely known as Lucy, as well as close relations to various Homo species, including Homo Sapiens. They've called this species Homo luzonensis, but as they haven't been able to extract DNA from the fossils they've found, they don't know where in the chain of evolution these relatives of ours fall.
I just really wish I could be in that lab right now. To study another close relative of ours that we previously didn't know existed? That's like a dream come true right there for me.
