Time Scanners: An Inside Look at Egypt's Pyramids
Start Date: 7/1/2014Start Time: 6:30 PM
End Date: 7/1/2014End Time: 8:30 PM

Event Description:
The premiere episode of Time Scanners, a documentary series on PBS featuring the Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies, will be shown during an event that includes a discussion with CAST researchers who appeared in the series. The watch party begins at 6:30 p.m. in Ken and Linda Sue Shollmier Hall, Room 250 in Vol Walker Hall. The screening will include remarks from Todd Shields, dean of the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences. A question-and-answer session will follow the one-hour episode.

Time Scanners took the CAST researchers to historic locations around the world, including the pyramids in Egypt, St. Paul’s Cathedral in London and the ancient desert city of Petra. CAST researchers used their advanced remote sensing technology to collect and analyze billions of measurements to form what is known as a point cloud, which not only provided a 3-D perspective of these structures but also solved some of the enduring engineering mysteries surrounding them.

According to PBS, the series “reveals physical and forensic history, allowing viewers to reach out and touch the past.”
