Technology News: Science : Particle Accelerator Used To Decipher Text

so, apparently, in the middle ages, some christian monk re-used a tablet which happened to have some of archimedes work written on it.

some of the guys at stanford are using a particle accelerator to read the previously incaccessible text. i guess how it works is the accelerator is used to focus a beam of x-rays at the tablet, which in turn excites the iron used in the ink.

from what i've read, this procedure actually makes the writing appear to glow, rendering it readable, even through the layer written over it, like secret elvish x-ray runes, or something.

cool, huh?
