A restorerwipes centuriesof dirtfromaface in the Vatican'sSistine
Chapel, as the gloomy masterwork isrenewed to a glory of color and light.
V HO WOULD DARE changethe arms of God on the
first day of Creation?Michelangelo. First he
scribed outlines for God'sarms into wet plaster with quick strokes ofa sharp tool. Then he abandoned thoseoutlines in a flash of brushstrokes. Hepainted God's left arm so it swept directlyoverhead, made that arm plunge a divinehand into the turbulent light and wrenchit from the darkness (page 697).
The Sistine Chapel quivers still with theaftershocks of Michelangelo's daringnow even more as nine years of carefulcleaning and restoration by Vaticanexperts come to an end. They have beenseparating darkness -the accumulatedgrime of nearly five centuries - fromMichelangelo's light. It is a light to amazethe eye and blind the soul.
Yet what a reluctant light it was, for theartist was cajoled and harassed, forcedreally, into completing one of the crowning masterpieces of Western civilization.

Double row of spineson neck and back
WHEN 130-125 million years agoWHERE Argentina
Like the tail fins on a 1959 Cadillac,a bizarre double row of spinesextending from the vertebrae ofAmargasaurus(right) may haveserved little purpose other thanto turn heads. Since the discoveryof the sauropod was announcedin 1991, paleontologists havepondered the function of thedelicate bony rods, which wouldhave offered limited defense atbest against predators. Perhapsthey were covered with skin,forming sails similar to those onsome living lizards. If so, Amargasaurusmight have flushed
blood into the sails to help coolits body. But their likely function,says Smithsonian paleontologistHans-Dieter Sues, was to attractmates or intimidate rivals. "Inevolution nothing is really bizarre.Every structure makes perfectlygood sense to the organism. Inthe case of extinct animals thechallenge is to identify what thepurpose might have been."
