The party for Ardipithecus held on January 7 celebrated the research behind the science publication and Discovery Channel release of the ‘Ardi’ skeleton, a 4.4 million year old evolutionary link to our deep past. Older and more complete than others, ‘Ardi’ was named the scientific breakthrough of the year in 2009. A large number of people on the international team of researchers involved in ‘Ardi’ were in attendance to the event hosted at the Getty residence. Notable guests include Berkeley researcher Tim White, Henry Gilbert, Discovery Channel’s Mike Rowe, Ann Getty, and Gordon Getty
