    Two-mln-year-old hominid sheds light on evolution

Studied at Grenoble's European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), the partially fossilized specimens -- an adult female and a juvenile male -- appear to be somewhere between australopithecus and homo sapiens on the evolution chain.Duration: 01:01
