SEES pterodactyl videos featured on BBC
Researchers from SEES are being featured on the BBC website as part of an ongoing project in conjunction with Royal Society's Summer Exhibition.
The 2010 Summer Science Exhibition, held on 26 June - 4 July 2010, is the Royal Society's 350th anniversary and will be at the Southbank Centre in London. Surrounded by a packed nine-day festival of events, the exhibition will form the centrepiece of the biggest year of science yet.
Over the course of 12 months, the BBC followed a team of researchers from SEES as they built five giant pterosaur models. The life-size models of the flying giants - the largest of which will have a wing span of 10m - went on display as part of the exhibition. Two of the models were stationed on the ground, allowing visitors to view the pterosaurs up close, while three others were suspended, as in flight, between nearby buildings.
Fred Dinenage talks to Dr Dave Martill about the making of the models.
