The discovery of a new species, the Homo naledi was announced this morning and it has opened the door to a new debate about what makes humans unique and whether scientists have been wrong about the “birth of consciousness”.
Over 1,500 fossil pieces have been brought up from the so-called ‘Chamber of Stars’ in what is being described as the richest fossil find in the history of the African continent. Scientists now believe the chamber, located deep inside a network of caves at the Cradle of Humankind, was used by the primitive creatures to bury its dead.
And of course, Twitter users went absolutely bos in response to this announcement. The #WhatTheyFoundInMaropeng hasthag was trending nationally throughout today. Here are 20 of the funniest tweets that I’ve spotted:
