With crystal-clear scans of unborn babies now before them, a group of scientists can’t quite believe their eyes. It seems that they’ve made a shocking observation, one which could have profound scientific implications. It’s a little early to say for certain, of course, but this work might just rewrite our understanding of human evolution.

In order to conduct this research, the scientists made use of novel and sophisticated technologies. With them, they were able to produce some extremely detailed scans of developing babies inside the womb. These images, it appeared, were exhibiting an unusual feature of fetuses which had never previously been noted.
