Jurassic Park Lied to You: T-Rex Had Great Eyesight Really

https://gizmodo.com/jurassic-park-lied-to-you-t-rex-had-great-eyesight-rea-1577352103

"...while admitting that these were best-case scenario determinations, the T-Rex may well have had visual clarity up to 13 times better than a modern human. For reference, an eagle has about 3.6 times the visual clarity of a person. Additionally, it was determined that a T-Rex's vision allowed an object to remain relatively clear up to six kilometers away. For humans, it's only about 1.6 kilometers for the same clarity.
...
Besides great vision, the T-Rex also had a great sense of smell (and had good hearing). In fact, their large olfactory bulbs and nerves relative to their brain size indicates they may have had a sense of smell about equivalent to modern vultures, which are able to smell dead things from as far away as a couple kilometers. So whether scavenging or hunting, the T-Rex was good at finding things to eat. That said, there is some debate as to just how fast they were, with most scientists today thinking they had only a max speed of about 17-25 mph."

A forgotten Cold War experiment has revealed its icy secret. It’s bad news for the planet.

Physicists have created a new and extremely rare kind of uranium

........

Seems the first of the following three articles draws a completely different conclusion than the rest, maybe it's just click-bait.

That's interesting, since even a single T-rex should require lots of meat to survive. With a whole pack hunting together the amount of prey in the area must have been staggering to sustain a T-rex population.
