- NASA, UNH Scientists Uncover Lost Maya Ruins From Space
Huntsville AL (SPX) Feb 15, 2006 - Remains of the ancient Maya culture,
mysteriously destroyed at the height of its reign in the ninth century, have
been hidden in the rainforests of Central America for more than 1,000 years.
Now, NASA and University of New Hampshire scientists are using space- and
aircraft-based "remote-sensing" technology to uncover those ruins, using the
chemical signature of the civilization's ancient building materials.
