Brit researchers are now able to recreate images of animals that lived hundreds of thousands of years ago, animals they couldn't have studied otherwise. Buried in rock certain ways, they're normally unrecoverable as fossils. But they're getting images in MRI fashion -- shaving rocks, taking the shavings where the animal is fossilized, and creating the 3D images by putting the shavings back together.

Nuts. I thought this thread was about Strom Thurmond.

I heard of something like this. Some Brits did the same thing with a skull from the time of Christ to see what the average person (and thusly, possibly Christ himself) looked like.
There's probably a "But what if..." about this, but I just got off work, so I leave it for someone else.
