Well -- 4000 year old Egyptian mummy is being brought back to life using modern technology.
The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is using CT scans to create 3-D images.
Of the mummy which they're calling Cheney doctor Peter shirt is.
-- at the museum welcomed sir great to have you here today.
Let's talk for a -- about this cutting edge technology.
What have you learned from being able -- take a scam.
This money which is thousands of years old.

We discovered that -- -- from -- enough.
But and gotten the -- be what -- never known.
-- -- -- cut cut was made in 1986.
They're gonna flew from what Phil core -- at that time for recruitment and feed the math and now we know -- Obama being left but you were very excited for the.
What is it about this technology.
Scientists in to a whole other realm of the 21 century.
But previous investigations of -- you would approach that actually destroy the -- to find information you little profit underground -- See what with -- fund.
Fifth technology allows them to preserve the mommy and -- got a very good image of what's going on it and -- mommy.

And put them together.
A couple of -- effect which reconstruct the pay for the moment.

When he was excavated in 1923.
