Hi Trygve,


I have heard the same theory, but I don't think the description for how the image was made would hold up. For one thing, the image has been shown to be truly three dimensional. This was discovered in 1974 using a computer image analyzer. It was verified again in 1978 using a VP8 image analyzer, the devise NASA was using at the time to study digtial photos from space. It has also been shown to have skeletal features. This was discovered by illuminating the image with polarized light. You can find all kinds of research papers at: www.shroud.com Paul
