The Challenge is intended to celebrate and encourage the visualization of research. First place in the photography category was a phtograph of the scan of a child mummy from the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum: "An Egyptian Child Mummy (Credits: W. Paul Brown, Robert Cheng, Rebecca Fahrig, Stanford University; Christof Reinhart, Volume Graphics). For, 75 years, this child mummy resided in the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose, California, its body unseen by human eyes, its story a mystery. In 2005, a team of researchers and computer engineer Paul Brown of Stanford University began to unravel the threads of this mystery using the latest in imaging technology. Using a high-resolution scanner to generate 60,000 2D scans of the unwrapped mummy and applying addition 3D computer graphics created a 3d model of the mummy and its interior. Analysis of the data revealed that the 2,000-yer-old mummy is the remains of a 4-to-5 year old girl who, researchers concluded, likely died unexpectedly from an infectious disease."
