Today marks a Mexican holiday known as Day of the Dead or Día de los Muertos in Spanish. It is a time for families to celbrate and remember relatives who have passed away. The mummy at the Science Museum of Minnesota, someone’s very old relative, underwent a CT scan at the St. Paul Children’s Hospital Friday. Researchers hope to learn more about the life of the mummified person from the information the scan will reveal.
