    No, it does not. It was here when the Earth was formed. Gold is an element. We have no meteorites with samples of gold. It would be nice though...

    I helped comb a field, but was not the one who found, a fall after a nice bright meteor.

    High school astronomy club. I was thrilled.

    I've always wanted to see a bright Milky Way supernova, but that's absurdly unlikely within my lifetime, even though it's overdue.

    I was excited to see SN 1987A and happened to be in Australia, so I had a wonderful view.

    Lucky you, at some point I would like to go on a dig with Paleontologists.
    I would also like to go to the Field Museum in Chicago and see the legendary Sue, which is one of the largest and the most complete Tyrannosaurus specimen over found.
    If only I could go back in time and see these animals in the flesh, but unfortunately the time machine most likely won't be invented in my lifetime. So I'll settle for seeing their bones instead.

    Alright ima have to step in here.

    Yes it does.

    Gold is formed from Supernovea exploding. It then travelled to earth when it was young via asteroids and voila. You have the donner party traveling west in the gold rush and then they ate people.

    You are misinformed my friend.

    Gold is an inert element therefore it is not actually formed, but instead exists in its natural state contained within the earth's crust.

    Gold, the shiny yellow metal prized for its beauty and malleability and used in many different industries, is actually created inside massive stars when they explode into a supernova. Of course, after a star supernovas and forms gold, the precious metal has to travel to Earth in some way.

    By studying ancient rock samples with high-precision instruments, scientists have found evidence that accessible gold, or the gold that is technologically and economically feasible to reach on the surface of the planet, arrived via asteroids when the earth was still fairly young.

    Yeah, I already said gold was an element. Post #23 above.
    Let us concentrate on present day meteorites. 99.9% come from the asteroid belt and have no gold.
    Yeah, we can well conclude that most 'natural' elements on Earth came from 'supergiants' or 'supernovae'. Elements up through iron were created in supergiants and the elements from iron to uranium were created in supernovae.

    Also, a second theory:
    "On Earth, gold finally reached us some 200 million years after the formation of the planet when meteorites packed with gold and other metals bombarded its surface. Another theory concerning the formation of gold that’s been gaining a lot of traction today is that the element can form following the collision of two neutron stars."

    NWA 7325 -- This meteorite is unlike all other meteorites on Earth. It was not part of the asteroid belt. In fact, it predates the Earth and the Sun. It did not come from our solar system. Age estimate: Roughly 4.7 billion years old. I have a piece of it in my collection and it did not cost me $1,000. The cube is 1 cm.

    The key word is INERT element.
    That means it is not formed on the earth it just exists.

    IIRC there was a huge fight with the government over ownership of Sue.

    Werent the raptors in JP supposed to be dinonychus as they were 4.5 to 5.5 foot tall, but they opted to use the name velociraptor because it sounded easier/cooler?

    Regardless, even a pack of velociraptors would be terrifying. Its like being attacked by them giant chickens in sekiro.

    Yes, you're right. Sue was found on private property, and the guy who owned the property was apart of the Sioux Native American tribe. The tribe claimed that the bones belonged to them and there was this big court case over it.
    Actually, there is a great documentary about it called Dinosaur 13. You should check it out sometime. Now would be the perfect time with all this Coronavirus pandemonium going on at the moment.

    I've seen it, but couldn't remember if it was called A Dinosaur Named Sue.
    Kind of upsetting tbh. Those bones belong to science, you fucks

    Yeah you're right, the Velociraptors from Jurassic Park were actually based on Deinonychus. although the JP raptors were slightly bigger than Deinonychus. Actually the closest thing to the JP raptors were probably either Achillobator or Dakotaraptor.
    Here is Achillobator.

    And here is Dakotaraptor.

    I like to think of Velociraptor as a land eagle. Small, yet deadly and efficient. And you're right, a pack of them could probably tear a guy to pieces.

    Yeah, I'm just glad that Sue is now at the Field Museum where she belongs.
