Revealing mysteries of Antikythera Mechanism

In an exciting link-up between high-tech industry and international universities, the secrets of a 2000 year old astronomical calculatin device – the Antikythera Mechanism – were unraveled. Researchers counted on the unique 400kV microfocus computed tomography (CT) system. The outcome not only led to an astonishing new theory of how the mechanism worked, but also to the reading of inscriptions that remained unseen for more than 2,000 years.
