If the fossil record allows it then I have no doubt that Ichthyosaurs larger than a Blue whale will eventually be found in the future. :thumbsup:

Impossible to say - perhaps invisibility or being able to phase to discover what the latest black op technology is like, being able to see the inside the Vatican archives and the secrets of every nation, not to mention all of the latest science and what goes on at Bilderberg etc.

The Millennium Simulation is almost 13 years old but is still one of the most awe-inspiring videos I have ever seen - and it really looks like the interconnected neurons and synapses of some colossal brain utterly vast beyond imagination (if I was feeling mischievous either a super-alien's or even a God's). :thumbsup:

On the Super Giant Icthyosaur - in the paper they state evidence that the remains of another specimen 30% larger than the 26 metre individual.

That means 34 metres and bigger than the longest recorded Blue whale!

Albeit speculative until more complete fossils are found -

The same method has its limitations, but a comparison can be made to the Aust specimen (BRSMG Cb3869) that might be a portion of surangular. The maximum cross-sectional dimension of the Aust fragment is 13.8 cm ([15]; DRL, PDLS pers. obs.), which is similar in cross-sectional shape to a portion of the Lilstock surangular anterior to the coronoid, where the bone is roughly cylindrical. That region of the Lilstock specimen has a dorsoventral height of 10.6–9.2 cm, suggesting that the Aust ichthyosaur was a much larger animal, perhaps more than 30% larger. If the Aust specimen is a portion of the dentary or premaxilla, then the ichthyosaur was probably even larger. Of course, considering that the Lilstock and Aust bones represent only portions of the lower jaw, these estimates are very speculative.

Nice reconstruction with dolphin-sized Ichthyosaurs to give a sense of scale.

The green button looks good too. You could turn into a microscopic bug of similar size to an atom or electron or even a quark...... and explore first hand the world of inner space which is every bit as mysterious and riveting as outer space. Nightnight Keys. x
