On Discovery Channel The Non-Destructive Testing Group

The Non-Destructive Testing Group lately X-rayed a fossilized dinosaur mummy with the Kodak Industrex ACR 2000i X-Ray device machine. The complete story of this unprecedented discover will be chronicled in “Secrets of the Dinosaur Mummy,” premiering September 14, 9:00 pm (ET/PT), resting on the Discovery Channel.

Leonardo, who will be going on to put on show September 19 at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, is a three-year-old male Brachylophosaurus Canadensis, discovered in the summer of 2000 in Malta, MT.

What makes Leonard accordingly particular is that he is the largest and best-preserved dinosaur fossil ever discovered—his body in fact mummified, meaning that 90% of his soft tissue is preserved, together with skin, muscle, nails and beak.
