Italian researchers produce one of the most detailed views of an ancient Egyptian

Italian scientists have used three-dimensional X-ray imaging to reveal the skull of a nearly 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy and reconstruct his head, all without disturbing a single wrapping.

The procedure — which blends state-of-the-art CT scanning, rapid prototyping and forensic facial reconstruction — offers a noninvasive way to solve riddles of the ancient past, the scientists said.

Did You mean Steve Balmer, sp? [:)] He surely is one great Freak at M$...[:D][:D][:D] I watched some of his introduction videos...and he sure rocks! [;)] Maybe its even remake of his head photo...who knows...those days everything seems possible...[:D][:D][:D]

Anyway...really impressive technology...thats how they would look onto some of us some 10.000 years from now on....and get our 3D pictures...(maybe they would be able to clone us successfully also...mmmmmm...I would love to live and see how this world will look like at that time) [:)][;)]
