Tracker of Dinosaurs and Intricate Soul - interview "Milliards of years in stone" in the "Týden" journal

Radek Mikuláš is a specialist in the study of fossil traces. They may be preserved in various rocks dated back from both close and remote times of the Earth history. Interviewed by the Týden Journal, Radek Mikuláš talked not only on enigmas hidden in stone, but also on his craze for discoveries and on his endless battle with depression.

Radek Mikuláš gave the web portal HR Kavárna an interview "The failure and the science"

The advance in science consists, among others, of falsifying the previous theories; thereby, the advance is tightly connected with failure, says Radek Mikuláš, a researcher of the Institute of Geology, CAS. Each scientist should be ready to accept that his/her opinion is incorrect but, in reality, only few people are capable to do this.

Where to find fossil traces of past animals? How did they originate, and what can be learnt by reading them? These and many other questions were put to Radek Mikuláš from the Institute of Geology, Czech Academy of Sciences. For our understanding the fossil traces, he visited unique geologic exposures throughout the Czech Republic and he compared them to places where analogous traces originate at present.
