Scientists already have news about Saturn's
Orbiting in the opposite direction from Saturn, the
137-mile-diameter moon appears to be a captured body from the comet
belt beyond Neptune, says Cassini scientist Torrance Johnson. Photos
show that Phoebe is heavily cratered and laden with ice, leading
researchers to suggest it may also be the parent of smaller icy
moons orbiting around Saturn.
Scientists have discovered 31 moons around Saturn, with more
discoveries expected. Eighteen, including Phoebe, are outside the
rings; 13 icy ones are inside. The ones Cassini will pass by
* Iapetus (eye-APP-eh-tuss). The ''two-faced'' moon with dark and
bright halves. A frozen eruption of liquid methane may cover the
dark half with a layer of reddish material.
* Enceladus (en-SELL-uh-duss). Likely covered with ice, it
reflects nearly 100% of the light that hits it.
* Dione (die-OH-nee). It may have an icy volcanism that
occasionally resurfaces the moon.
probe will explore planet's rings, fly by some of its moons, even
land on one
Unveiling the secrets The mystery of
Saturn's rings will get the Sherlock Holmes treatment with a
high-tech twist when the international Cassini-Huygens mission
arrives at the sixth planet from the sun next week.
Astronomers have been intrigued by Saturn's rings for centuries.
(There are seven main rings; the most recent was discovered in 1980
by Voyager 1.) What they know is that the rings are made of ice
crystals, ranging from microscopic to stadium-size. What they don't
know is where those materials came from and how long they've been
The detective work begins at 9:12 p.m. ET Wednesday when the
$3.27 billion probe is set to fire its rocket and settle into orbit
around Saturn six years and eight months after it left Earth. From
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., controllers
plan to knife the spacecraft through a space between the planet's
''The health of the spacecraft is excellent, and all indications
are perfect for the maneuver,'' says JPL's Earl Maize, mission
deputy program manager. Earlier this month, the rocket engine gave a
100-pound kick that sent Cassini to its first Saturnian encounter, a
1,285-mile flyby of the moon Phoebe.
Cassini is the last of NASA's big-budget missions, started before
the era of smaller, cheaper ventures, such as the highly publicized
Mars rovers. The European Space Agency and the Italian space agency
partnered with NASA on this trip.
Cassini has cruised past three planets on its way to Saturn,
flying by Earth and Jupiter once and passing Venus twice. In four
years, it will orbit Saturn 76 times, execute 52 flybys of seven
moons, including the Phoebe encounter, and attempt one landing.
''Saturn is the most recognizable planet, but it's surprising how
little we really know about it,'' says science writer Dawn Stover of
Popular Science magazine. In addition to the rings, the atmosphere,
magnetic field and many moons of Saturn puzzle astronomers:
* Though other planets, such as Jupiter and Uranus, possess
slight rings, Saturn's defy easy explanation. Researchers cannot
tell whether the rings are detritus from colliding moons or leftover
material from the planet's formation. By sending radio waves through
the rings, Cassini will map the ring's structure down to about a
football-field-length resolution. There is concern that ice and dirt
from the rings could damage the craft.
* Saturn's moon Titan is hidden by a dense methane atmosphere.
Titan may preserve frozen hydrocarbons present on Earth before life
arose, as well as seas and continents built of those materials. The
ESA's Huygens probe is scheduled to drop by parachute to Titan's
surface in January.
* Saturn's magnetic field is aligned to the axis of its rotation.
This puzzles astronomers because it defies current understanding of
how planets generate such fields. On Earth and other planets, the
axis of rotation is not aligned with the axis of the magnetic field.
The Magnetospheric Imaging Instrument aboard Cassini should map this
mysterious field precisely with the goal of providing insight into
* Saturn is the windiest place in the solar system. Cassini is
expected to detect conditions many miles below the upper edge of the
planet's atmosphere and answer questions about the atmospheric bands
that stripe the planet.
''The potential for visual delight is enormous,'' says astronomer
Carolyn Porco, Cassini imaging team leader at the Space Science
Institute in Boulder, Colo. ''Hats off to the Mars rover team, but
we're going to blow them out of the water in terms of interesting
Says Stover: ''The mission has been a little forgotten about with
all the attention paid to the Mars rovers. But this is a big deal,
and there are a lot of exciting things waiting on Cassini, and not
just for scientists.''
The planet's last visitor, Voyager 2 in 1981, raised as many
questions as answers, says Stover, whose magazine's current issue
takes an in-depth look at Cassini. Aside from telescope
observations, there hasn't been much new data since then.
With Cassini's early findings already coming in, scientists
eagerly await the spacecraft's orbit around Saturn, a goal three
decades in the making. ''We're feeling how I imagine Olympic
athletes feel after training for years as their event is about to
start,'' Porco says.
Twin rovers to
extend Mars visit Search for evidence of water will last until
NASA's twin Mars rovers, the hardest-working
stars in space exploration, face five months of extended duty on the
Red Planet, space agency officials say.
NASA Mars Exploration Program director Orlando Figueroa announced
the extension last week as the official 90-day mission of the Spirit
rover ended. Opportunity landed three weeks after Spirit; its 90
days aren't up until April 26.
The agency approved a $15 million extension to the $820 million
twin-rover endeavor. ''The extension more than doubles exploration
for less than a 2% additional investment, if the rovers remain in
working condition,'' NASA said in a news release Thursday.
The Spirit and Opportunity rovers will now look for geologic
evidence of water in Mars' past until September. Water is considered
a necessary ingredient for microbial life to have existed on Mars.
''Even though the extended mission is approved to September, and
the rovers could last even longer, they also might stop in their
tracks next week or next month. They are operating under extremely
harsh conditions,'' says Firouz Naderi, manager of Mars exploration
at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., where the
rovers were built and are controlled.
''However, while Spirit is past its 'warranty,' we look forward
to continued discoveries by both rovers in the months ahead.''
Last month, the Opportunity rover reported the discovery of
evidence that a salty sea once covered its landing region, Meridiani
Planum. Sedimentary rock deposits were found on the Oklahoma-size
plain. And Meridiani is covered with deposits of gray hematite, a
mineral usually formed in hot springs.
Gusev Crater, Spirit's landing site on the other side of the
planet, has so far yielded signs of only trace amounts of water.
''We're going to continue exploring and try to understand the water
story at Gusev,'' says JPL's Mark Adler, deputy mission manager for
Both rovers landed under near-optimal conditions in January.
Despite a power-draining computer glitch on Spirit and a balky
heater on Opportunity, project chief Richard Cook had expressed
optimism about extending the rover missions as early as
signs of seasons on Mars
Mysterious spiral canyons on the polar ice caps of
Mars are the product of changing seasons on the Red Planet, a
scientist says. In April's Geology journal, University of Arizona
geoscientist Jon Pelletier shows that summer sunlight melted small
cracks to build troughs in the ice, each about half the size of the
Grand Canyon at 5 miles wide and a half-mile deep. Over thousands of
years, his models show, the canyons deepened and aligned into the
curious spirals seen only on Mars. Forming such spirals requires a
large ice cap, a thin atmosphere and temperatures that hover around
freezing during the summer. He said those are conditions not seen
elsewhere in the solar system. Near its equator, Mars also has a
volcanic rift canyon, Valles Marineris, a fracture more than 3 miles
deep and 2,400 miles long.
Sky watchers could not

An after-dinner dessert now
awaits sky watchers as five planets make appearances in the early

moons of Jupiter.
For the rest of the month, Jupiter, Saturn,
Mars, Venus and Mercury are visible at night without a telescope,
Mercury will drop out of sight in early April,
but the remaining four will extend their engagement through May.
"The hardest part for most people will be
identifying Mars and Mercury," says Ken Graun, author of Touring the
Universe: A Practical Guide to Exploring the Cosmos Thru 2017. "Mars
is fading, and Mercury is always a difficult little bugger to
Graun advises sky watchers with a sky chart to
look for Mercury just after sunset, as a little darkness colors the
sky, "or else it will go down even before you notice it."
The five planets, all the ones that were known
to ancient astronomers, make such group appearances only once every
The ancient Greeks called these celestial
objects "wanderers" because, when seen from Earth, they appear to
follow meandering paths compared with the stately regular motion of
stars. These seemingly looping trajectories are the result of the
way the planets race around the sun. Earth is always either lapping
them — as is the case with Mars, Jupiter and Saturn — or being
lapped by the others in their orbits around the sun.
Venus, which is only about 70 million miles
away right now, will be the brightest object in the sky after the
sun and moon.
This week's planetary grouping is just a
warm-up for the year's big astronomical event — the June "transit"
of Venus, when the planet passes between the sun and Earth, says
astronomer George Kaplan of the U.S. Naval Observatory in
Astronomers will be watching that passage
carefully, hoping to record the light spectra of Venus' atmosphere.
They want to someday compare that atmospheric profile to the light
emanating from planets orbiting nearby stars.
Mars makes its closest pass by the moon
tonight, nearly being eclipsed, says astronomer Tony Phillips of the
Science@NASA Web site (science.nasa.gov), which should provide some
help in identifying the Red Planet. Look for a dim orange object to
the right of the moon and to the left of Venus.
Amateur astronomers with small telescopes
should be able to see the rings of Saturn and the moons of Jupiter
as well, Phillips says.

long-lost 'salty sea' found on Mars Next step: Search for signs of
WASHINGTON -- A salty sea once existed on the surface of Mars, an
environment that could have supported early life on the Red Planet,
NASA scientists announced Tuesday.
''We think Opportunity is now parked on what was once the
shoreline of a salty sea on Mars,'' says Steve Squyres of Cornell
University, lead scientist of NASA's twin-rover Mars mission.
The Opportunity rover uncovered evidence of the ancient body of
water in a bedrock outcrop surrounding its landing site in a crater.
Uneven deposits of salts in the outcrop and ''cross-bedding'' of
rock layers unmistakably show that water currents -- gentle 1-mph
ones -- laid down the bedrock layers at an undetermined point in
Mars' past, Squyres says.
The rover team had reported three weeks ago that water once
saturated the bedrock, but scientists had not been certain until now
that open water once existed at the crater. ''This dramatic
confirmation of standing water in Mars' history builds on a
progression of discoveries about that most Earth-like of alien
planets,'' says Ed Weiler, NASA space science chief.
''This result gives us impetus to expand our ambitious program of
exploring Mars to learn whether microbes have ever lived there and,
ultimately, whether we can.''
Opportunity and its twin, Spirit, which is on the other side of
the planet, landed in January. The $820 million rovers were sent to
look for clues in rocks and soil to the Martian history of water.
Water is thought to be necessary for life to have ever existed on
Mars is a desert planet. It is notable for dust storms, freezing
temperatures and a thin carbon dioxide atmosphere.
But the mission's findings thus far suggest that billions of
years ago, water flowed on the then-young planet. This could have
given microbial life a chance to arise, some scientists suggest.
The team delayed its latest results by two weeks so that six
outside scientists could review the findings.
''I'm convinced. It's very compelling geologic evidence,'' says
Melissa Lane of the Planetary Science Institute in Tucson, an
outside scientist who was not part of the NASA review team.
The rovers' instruments detect traces of iron in their search for
minerals rusted by water. Neither rover can detect organic materials
or microbe fossils left behind by living organisms.
Opportunity left its crater Monday to explore the Meridiani
Planum plain, overcoming slippery sand to make its exit.
gamble pays off 'Following the water' paves way for biggest find of

went to Mars.
And now the space agency appears to have hit the jackpot by
finding evidence of water on the Red Planet. Scientists announced
Tuesday that one of its exploratory rovers is parked on the
shoreline of what once was a salty Martian sea.
It is a sorely needed victory, one that quiets critics who have
taken a dim view of NASA since the shuttle Columbia disintegrated in
the skies over Texas last year. NASA was blamed for the disaster,
which killed seven astronauts; its operations and even its culture
were called into question.
Now, the Mars twin rovers -- the mobile geology labs dubbed
Opportunity and Spirit -- have revived NASA's reputation and
vindicated its exploration strategy.
Paired with the detection by orbiting spacecraft of ice under
Mars' surface and at the poles, the discovery that water once flowed
on the planet makes it seem much more likely that President Bush's
goal of sending astronauts there will be realized.
''Human exploration and ultimate colonization of Mars will depend
on accessibility to one resource: water,'' writes space scientist
Timothy Titus of the U.S. Geologic Survey in Flagstaff, Ariz., in
Nature magazine. ''For life on Mars, water is the elixir.''
In beating the odds -- two-thirds of past Mars missions ended in
failure -- NASA's $820 million twin-rover mission ran a gantlet of
pitfalls and risks:
* NASA first debated whether to send the roving geology labs or
to stick with tried-and-true orbiters. Both kinds of missions were
considered to have equal scientific merit. The perils of descending
through the Martian atmosphere made the rovers a riskier
proposition, but they offered a closer look at this most foreign of
lands. The rovers eventually won out at NASA headquarters in 2000.
* NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory team built and launched the
rovers in three grueling years that left the staff exhausted.
* The European Space Agency pulled ahead with the launch in June
of Beagle 2, its Mars lander. Then, just as NASA was preparing for a
nearly identical landing, the European mission failed with the
disappearance of Beagle 2. Its fate remains unknown.
* The rovers' complicated landing system of heat shields,
parachutes, braking rockets and airbags had to take the technology
to the edge of its capabilities to be successful. It worked
Right place, right time
It helped that Opportunity landed perfectly in a crater on
the Oklahoma-sized Meridiani Planum region, which is lined with
''Meridiani has offered far more than expected -- right at the
lander's feet,'' says Melissa Lane of the Planetary Sciences
Institute in Tucson. ''It was a hole-in-one.''
In 2002, she was lead author of the Journal of Geophysical
Research report that identified Meridiani Planum as a possible lake
bed of the past. The composition of a bedrock outcrop confirms that
water once soaked the rock layers, says rover mission chief
scientist Steve Squyres of Cornell University.
The landing site for Spirit, the Connecticut-sized Gusev Crater
on the other side of Mars, was chosen because it was expected to
reveal more signs of having been a lake bed. It turned out that any
such deposits appear to have been buried by lava, although Spirit
did find some mineral evidence of water.
Mars research went into hibernation after the 1976 Viking mission
landings. Designed to detect life, the landers found no organic
molecules in samples of the soil.
Then more recent findings reignited NASA's interest, such as the
discovery four years ago by the orbiting Mars Global Surveyor of
gullies that looked as if they had been carved by water.
A century of fascination
Dreams of water on Mars have captivated scientists since
astronomer Percival Lowell published maps of canals there in 1908.
Mars has many features that might have been carved by water --
what appear to be river channels and flood plains, for example. But
lava flows or liquid carbon dioxide had been proposed in the past
few decades as possible causes of this geography.
Opportunity's findings settle that debate. ''These alternative
explanations no longer hold water,'' jokes astrobiologist Chris
McKay of NASA's Ames Research center in Moffett Field, Calif.
Geophysicist Nick Hoffman of Australia's University of Melbourne,
who championed such alternate explanations, acknowledges that the
debate has moved on. He says that because the Meridiani deposits
occur throughout the plain and similar white rock deposits occur in
many other areas, ''it significantly downgrades my theories of a
global carbon-dioxide-rich Mars.''
But it should be noted that lakes or oceans on Mars would not
have been like their Earth counterparts, scientists say.
Standing water on Mars probably was found in short-lived briny
pools, Titus says. If they existed, they would have been more like
the Dead Sea than the balmy Mediterranean, he says.
Because Meridiani is a flat plain rather than a basin, Hoffman
suggests that in the low-lying desert flats, salts percolated up
from groundwater and evaporated to create the plain's mineral
''I envisage groundwater seeping to the surface across the whole
Meridiani region and forming a smooth, layered deposit that drapes
everything,'' he says. ''Of course, all this took place long ago,
and that groundwater is no longer active.''
But it might be active elsewhere. Two years ago, the Mars Odyssey
orbiter detected water in ice locked under the surface of the
planet. And just last week, the European Space Agency's Mars Express
orbiter confirmed that ice girds the planet's South Pole.
Planetary scientist Bill Hartmann, author of A Traveler's Guide
to Mars, suggests that water is released regularly from polar ice as
the planet's tilt changes on a 100-million-year cycle, heating
frozen regions. Now at a 25-degree tilt, the planet's inclination to
the sun has ranged over the eons from zero to 45 degrees.
''We are going to Mars to look for life,'' said NASA science
chief Ed Weiler on the eve of Opportunity's landing on Jan. 24.
''Wherever you find water, you find life.''
NASA's ''follow the water'' mantra, oft repeated since 1998, is
the guiding principle not only of the rover mission, but also of
Mars missions planned as far in the future as 2009. Planned missions
to Jupiter's moons and to the asteroid Ceres also ''follow the
The strategy enriches space science by drawing biologists, marine
scientists and other disciplines into planetary exploration, Weiler
The search goes on
The Mars Express orbiter may be able to ferret out
groundwater hidden even deeper, perhaps a few miles down, using a
radar instrument. And a series of landers will probe promising
* The 2007 Phoenix Mars Scout, a lander aimed at the ice-rich
regions of northern Mars, is designed to ''scoop up soil to analyze
at the landing site and radio home evidence about the history of
Martian water and the possibility of past or current life,'' NASA
press materials say.
* The 2009 Mars Science Laboratory is a nuclear-powered rover
''in search of habitable environments and the basic building blocks
of life.'' Program officials have advocated a ''follow the carbon''
plan -- carbon being another ingredient for life favored by
astrobiologists -- for this mission.
* The Bush administration's plans call for more robotic landings
on Mars, including soil-sample missions, ''to search for evidence of
life, to understand the history of the solar system and to prepare
for future human exploration.''
McKay asks: ''So we have followed the water; now what? I think
the answer is: Get serious about searching for evidence of life in
the form of fossils.''
Fossils may be found near the surface, but finding preserved
organic remains will require drilling to layers deep below the
planet's radiation-battered surface.
Most likely, fossils detected would be of the microscopic
variety. In 1996, scientists said they saw tiny microbe fossils in a
Martian meteorite. The claim was loudly disputed by outside
scientists and remains controversial.
The two rovers don't have any instruments for detecting organic
molecules left by living creatures, much less any such microscopic
fossils. But future rovers, particularly the 2009 mission, will
carry instruments designed to look for these traces.
planetoid joins neighborhood Cold and distant Sedna is 8 billion
miles from sun
Astronomers Monday revealed the discovery of a frozen world, the
most distant celestial body ever found in the solar system.
Named Sedna after an Inuit sea goddess who is said to live at the
bottom of the Arctic Ocean, it is the latest in a series of
super-size icy bodies detected in recent years.
In its elongated orbit, Sedna is now 8 billion miles from the
sun, compared with Earth's 93 million miles. It is smaller than our
solar system's smallest planet; with a diameter of about 1,000
miles, Sedna is about two-thirds the size of Pluto.
''Once you know these objects are out there, you change how you
see the solar system,'' says astronomer Mike Brown of the California
Institute of Technology in Pasadena, who headed the discovery team.
Found on Nov. 14 with a 48-inch telescope, Sedna is the first
sighting of a member of the distant Oort cloud of comets, which
circles the solar system perhaps 200 billion to 2 trillion miles
from the sun, Brown says.
Sedna isn't a planet, Brown says, because it's too small. (The
moon is about twice as big.) But it still is remarkable:
* A year on Sedna lasts 10,500 years as it travels in an
elongated orbit that takes it as far as 84 billion miles from the
sun and drops its temperature to minus 440 degrees Fahrenheit.
* As Sedna nears its closest approach to the sun, it is summer
there; temperatures are at minus 420 degrees.
* Sedna is very red, ''quite shiny, quite a surprise,'' Brown
says. He says Sedna might have a small moon circling in a 40-day
''It's an exciting discovery in what is a really tantalizing part
of the solar system,'' says planetary astronomer Will Grundy of
Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Ariz., where scientists discovered
Pluto in 1930. Grundy, who wasn't a member of the Sedna discovery
team, doubts that Sedna is part of the mysterious Oort cloud -- the
solar system's freezer for comets flung into deep space -- because
its orbit doesn't carry it far enough away from the sun.
What scientists can call a planet is a bit uncertain. The
International Astronomical Union has agreed only to an upper limit
on the size of a planet, says astronomer Mordecai-Mark Mac Low of
the American Museum of Natural History in New York. That leaves a
lower size limit open to interpretation.
''We have a continuum of orbiting objects now, from Jupiter to
the smallest asteroid you can name, and we'll likely have to develop
new terminology for them,'' Mac Low says.
When the solar system formed 4.5 billion years ago, the gravity
of a then-nearby star may have pulled Sedna away, Brown says. Other
astronomers call that idea speculative.
Astronomers find 10th planet
It is a
frozen world more than 8 billion miles from Earth and believed to be
the farthest known object within our solar system.
The Spitzer Space Telescope,
which discovered the new planet, has sent back many images,
including this star formation.
NASA planned a Monday press conference to offer
more details about Sedna, a planetoid between 800 miles and 1,100
miles in diameter, or about three-quarters the size of Pluto.
Named for the Inuit goddess who created the sea
creatures of the Arctic, Sedna lies more than three times farther
from the sun than Pluto. It was discovered in November.
"The sun appears so small from that distance
that you could completely block it out with the head of a pin," said
Mike Brown, an astronomer at the California Institute of Technology
who led the NASA-funded team that found Sedna.
That makes Sedna the largest object found
orbiting the sun since the discovery of Pluto, the ninth planet, in
1930. It trumps in size another world, called Quaoar, discovered by
the same team in 2002.
Brown and his colleagues estimate the
temperature on Sedna never rises above 400 degrees below zero
Fahrenheit, making it the coldest known body in the solar system.
Sedna follows a highly elliptical path around
the sun, a circuit that it takes 10,500 years to complete. Its orbit
loops out as far as 84 billion miles from the sun, or 900

the biggest clue. It belongs firmly to a style seen in the first
century AD or before." Mark Guscin, of the British Society for
the Turin Shroud, says, "The discovery of the stitching along with
doubt about the carbon-dating all add to the mountain of evidence
suggesting this was probably the shroud Jesus was buried in.
Scientists have been happy to dismiss it as a fake, but they have
never been able to answer the central question of how the image of
that man got on to the cloth." The first reference to the
shroud, which is supposed to be the cloth Jesus was wrapped in after
being crucified, was in 1357, when it was displayed in a church in
Lirey, France. One confusing point was that the figure on the cloth
has a wrist wound and people at that time thought that victims of
crucifixion were nailed to a cross by their hands. It's since been
discovered that the nails actually went through the wrists, since
the hands couldn't support the body's weight. Before it arrived
in France, it may have been known as the Edessa burial sheet, which,
according to legend, was given to King Abgar V by one of Jesus's
disciples. For the next 1,200 years it was kept hidden in an Iraqi
city, and brought out only for religious festivals. In 944 it turned
up in Constantinople before being stolen by the French knight
Geoffrey de Charny during the Crusades. It was scorched in a
fire in 1532. In 1578 it was moved to Turin in northern Italy, and
wasn't photographed until 1898. The photographer, Secondo Pia, was
amazed to see a detailed figure on the negative, since only a vague,
light- colored image can be seen on the actual shroud. Scientists
weren't allowed to examine the shroud until 1978. Barrie
Schwortz, photographer for the Shroud of Turin Research Project,
says, "We did absolutely every test there was to try to find out how
that image had got there. We used X-rays, ultra-violet light,
spectral imaging and photographed every inch of it in the most
minute detail, but we still couldn't come up with any answers. We
weren't a bunch of amateurs. We had scientists who had worked on the
first atomic bomb and the space program, yet we still couldn't say
how the image got there. The only things we could say was what it
isn't: that it isn't a photograph and it wasn't a painting. It's
clear that there has been a direct contact between the shroud and a
body, which explains certain features such as the blood, but science
just doesn't have an answer of how the image of that body got on to
it." In 1988, scientists were finally give permission to cut a
small piece from the edge of the shroud so it could be carbon-
dating, which placed it in the Medieval era. But researcher Ian
Wilson says, "What I found quite incredible was that when they had
all the scientists there and ready to go, an argument started about
where the sample would come from. This went on for some considerable
time before a very bad decision was made that the cutting would come
from a corner that we know was used for holding up the shroud and
which would have been more contaminated than anywhere else."
Researcher Marc Guscin says evidence for the shroud's
authenticity is the small, blood-soaked cloth kept in a cathedral in
Oviedo, Spain, which is believed to have been used to cover Jesus's
head after he died. This cloth is described in the gospel of John as
lying in the tomb in a separate place from the shroud. Unlike the
shroud, it has been traced back to the first century and contains
blood from the same rare AB group that's found on the shroud. Guscin
says, "Laboratory tests have shown that these two cloths were used
on the same body. The fact that the Sudarium has been revered for so
long suggests it must have held special significance for people.
Everything points towards this cloth being used on the body of Jesus
