Copernicus reconstructed.

A project has been underway in Poland, where archeologists unearthed Nicolaus Copernicus' body and digitally reconstructed his face from the exhumed skull !

So far, the world only had a self-portrait and related enhancements to identify Copernicus...but now we can really put a face to the man...the portrait and the digital reconstruction are produced here...

Don't you think that Copernicus dude looks suspiciously like the other tall PhD dude @NC State Computer Science dept.? (tall being the keyword ;D )

Well, he does look familiar...but who are you referring to ?
