#NalediFossils expedition in pictures

3D casts have been made of all the #Naledifossils

Steve Tucker, one of the first people to enter the extraordinary chamber, 30m underground

The entrance to the cave chamber was so narrow, the Rising Star team sought out scientists who were small enough to get into the remote space

The #NalediFossils were studied inside the state-of-the-art vault at the University of the Witwatersrand

The stunning discovery by the team, led by Professor Lee Berger, will be featured in October's issue of National Geographic

Casts of the #NalediFossils will be invaluable to scientists studying the unique find

A collection of pictures that takes you behind the scenes of one of science's greatest discoveries
