Scientists, doctors and computer experts in Silicon Valley teamed up to generate the most detailed, high definition 3D models ever created from scanning an ancient mummy. Examining a two-thousand-year-old child mummy from San Jose’s Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum and Planetarium, scientists were able to generate 35 times more information than the recent King Tut mummy scans. These super high resolution images allowed researchers to “virtually unwrap” and remodel the child mummy without disturbing its delicately preserved form.
