Website covers opening of tomb of Tycho Brahe

Aarhus University has created an extensive website covering the 2010 opening of the tomb of 16th century Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe. The site includes photos and video about the project.

Brahe's tomb was opened November 15, 2010 by a team of Danish and Czech researchers who used the latest scientific techniques to analyze the remains, clothing and other objects of interest in the tomb.

The legendary scientist was reburied at Tyn Church in Prague November 19, 2010.

Closeup photos of objects found in the tomb, including a knit stocking, are available on the website.
