Welcome to OMSI's exhibit of Lost Egypt: Ancient Secrets/Modern Science. Enter here, but, please no photography or food and drink. LOST EGYPT Ancient Secrets, Modern Science January 29—May 1, 2011 http://www.omsi.edu/lostegypt Ancient Egypt—the massive scale of the pyramids, mysterious Egyptian afterlife, and process of mummification—holds a special fascination for the modern world. OMSI’s newest featured exhibit, Lost Egypt: Ancient Secrets, Modern Science illuminates this remarkable civilization as never before, by focusing on an area that is often overlooked in comparison with the grandeur of the pyramids: the lives of the ordinary people who built them. Discovered on the Giza Plateau, the Lost City of the Pyramid Builders helps answer questions about the people who undertook this massive engineering project. Learn how they lived, what they ate, and how they were organized. Explore how the windy Sahara Desert environment causes archaeological sites to be lost and found, and experiment with the engineering and technologies that the pyramid builders may have used to move the massive stones they used. Meet “Annie” (short for “anonymous”) an unidentified girl who died of blunt trauma to the head whose body was pulled from the Nile River and mummified. It is still a mystery why an unknown girl would get a mummified burial. Funerary artifacts illustrate the Egyptian concept of the afterlife: canopic jars that were used to hold and protect internal organs, amulets to protect the dead, and the ushabtis (figurines) that Egyptians believed would help with daily chores in the next world. For the first time ever, you’ll see a life-size rapid prototype of a mummy in a stage of "unwrapping.” You’ll also see animal mummies, tomb art, and facial forensic reconstructions that show what mummies (including Annie) may have looked like in life. Decode an authentic hieroglyphic message from ancient Egypt using a full-size reproduction of the Rosetta Stone and take your photo on a life-size camel replica. Throughout Lost Egypt, you’ll use science as a bridge to relate our cultural beliefs to those of the ancient Egyptians, connect past cultures to our own lives, and compare your findings to those of real-life archeologists. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Lost Egypt is presented by: Comcast Lost Egypt is supported by: Chevron Lufthansa -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Lost Egypt: Ancient Secrets, Modern Science was developed by COSI in cooperation with the Science Museum Exhibit Collaborative and was built by the Science Museum of Minnesota.

Dies ist ein Überblick von USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
