About this Video

What if you could read a book without even touching it? or what if we could reconstruct how a painting was created layer by layer? This video explains how terahertz waves can be used to unravel secrets that may be hidden in cultural heritage objects.

Albert Redo-Sanchez is Research Specialist at the MIT Media Lab. He works in developing new technology for the inspection of cultural heritage objects using terahertz waves and other multi-spectral imaging methods. He is also an aviation enthusiast and he would like to become an astronaut.
