Schickes Video der Uni Manchester mit CT-Scans einer 48 Millionen Jahre alte Spinne aus dem Berliner Naturkundemuseum. Vom New Scientist:

A mysterious ancient specimen at the Berlin Natural History Museum has finally been identified thanks to the latest computer imaging technology (see video above). The spider, which was trapped in amber 49 million years ago, can barely be seen under a microscope since the hardened resin has darkened and cracked over time. But David Penney and his team from the University of Manchester were able to peer inside it using X-ray computed tomography (CT), revealing the animal in a high level of detail.
