I have finally watched the "The Link" which was about the famous 47 million years old fossil scientists have recently presented as the missing link in the human evolution.
Ida was discovered in Messel pit, Germany in the 1980s. A private collector presented Ida to Prof Hurum at the annual fossil fair in Germany in 2006. Prof Hurum and a team of scientists had been studying Ida for 2 years.
"Ida" has nails, a hand, an opposable thumb and most importantly the "talus" bone which humans still have and which directly links Ida to humans as they claim.
The fossil has been named "Darwinius masillae" in honor of Darwin's 200th birthday.
The documentary explains the process of how they have discovered Ida and how they have reached the conclusion of "Ida" being the missing link in the human evolution.
Ida is currently displayed at the American Museum of Natural History (New York).
