Felicitous Fossils Facilitate Phylogenetic Fabling

Here are some recent fossil finds that, whether they fit or not, are claimed to shed light on evolution.

Fresh Impacts Viewed on Mars, Moon

New impacts observed on the moon and Mars allow space scientists to learn about crater formation in near real time. What conclusions can be drawn?
