Scientists Use New X-Ray Technique To Peek Inside 1,900-Year-Old Egyptian Mummy

Researchers from Northwestern University and the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Argonne National Laboratory used a new x-ray technique at the DOE's Advanced Photon Source to study the remains of a 1,900-year-old Egyptian girl — all without unraveling or damaging the mummy.

Reset brings on two scientists involved in the project for more on their findings.

GUESTS: Stuart Stock, cell and molecular biology research professor at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, and Jonathan Almer, physicist and group leader at the Argonne National Laboratory.
