Ditemukan ‘Hobbit’ dari Indonesia!

Baru ditemukandiumumkan (aku hampir ketinggalan beritanya) “fosil” hominid yang diberi nama *Homo floresiensis* di Flores oleh peneliti Australia dan Indonesia. Beberapa media menyebutnya ‘hobbit’ karena memang tinggi tubuhnya yang semampai (semeter tak sampai :smile:). Implikasi dari penemuan ini cukup serius tapi aku terlalu lelah dan ngantuk :zzz: untuk memberi komentar.

Beberapa taut berita:
* [Reuters.com](http://www.reuters.com/newsArticle.jhtml?type=scienceNews&storyID=6637279&src=rss/scienceNews&section=news): *Scientists have discovered a new and tiny species of human that lived in Indonesia at the same time our own ancestors were colonising the world.*
* [nature.com](http://www.nature.com/news/2004/041025/full/4311029a.html): *It’s the most extreme example ever found of human adaptation*.
* [kumpulan berita di Nature.com](http://www.nature.com/news/specials/flores/index.html): *It sounds too incredible to be true, but this is not a hoax.*
* [Carl Zimmer](http://www.corante.com/loom/archives/026745.html): *Scientists are going to be talking about it for centuries.*
* [Nationalgeographic.com](http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2004/10/1027_041027_homo_floresiensis.html “TinyHuman Ancestor Found in Asia”) *”Given that Homo floresiensis is the smallest human species ever discovered, they out-punch every known human intellectually, pound for pound.”*
