Mummy: The Inside Story

In an incredible investigation that uncovers the inside story of how the British Museum in London resurrected an Egyptian mummy in cyberspace, we begin in the museum basement and end where no one has gone before. Egyptologist John Taylor and a team of virtual reality experts from computer giant SGI transformed the mummified body of Nesperennub--an ancient Egyptian priest--into the world's first virtual mummy. From a set of 1500 CAT scans, they created a 3-D model of the mummy that could be "unwrapped" in the computer. The stunning stereoscopic images reveal Nesperennub's body in amazing clarity--and exactly like the embalmers left it in 800 BC! By going under the wraps of Nesperennub, we journey into the life and times of this ancient Egyptian.

Even aliens have been credited. But no definitive answer to this enigma exists. Now, an extraordinary new theory is being tested. Expert sailors, Egyptians used wind power on the Nile. Could they also harness the power of the wind on land and use land sails, or kites, to help lift heavy stones?
