A scientist from Duke University is among a group who recently discovered something that may fill in the historical record of the homo sapien, or human.
In the video above, Bob Buckley introduces us to 'Australipithicus Sediba,' a creature dating back to between two vital periods in human development.
As for what the name means, Australipithicus means "soutern ape." Sediba means "well spring" in a native South African language.
Scientists chose that name because they see the discovery as the wellspring, or beginning, of what became human beings.
