Even with modern scientific technology, the Shroud of Turin continues to baffle researchers.
The 14-foot linen has a full-length photonegative image of a wounded man on the front and back of the cloth. A scientific team spent five days analyzing the chemical and physical properties of the shroud.

“We could tell you what it’s not -- not a painting, not a photograph, not a scorch, not a rubbing -- but we know of no mechanism to this day that can make an image with the same chemical and physical properties as the image on the shroud,” one researcher said.
