Never mind the dinos

A bizarre paper that prompted a massive backlash from the chemical community when it made the ludicrous claim that understanding handed molecules on earth might help explain how dinosaurs could be the dominant species on other planets. However, the paper hasn’t been withdrawn by the American Chemical Society because the paper’s conclusion was so daft, but because there have been allegations of self-plagiarism by the author.

The ACS is, according to the Nature news blog, investigating various issues surrounding the paper and the organisations former president Ronald Breslow.
