(Via BBC)The researchers say they believe they've discovered a way the shroud could be authentic but still date to medieval times: a magnitude-8.2 earthquake in ancient Jerusalem. The Telegraph quotes one of the researchers, saying, "We believe it is possible that neutron emissions by earthquakes could have induced the image formation on the Shroud's linen fibres ...
and could also have caused a wrong radiocarbon dating."Of course, this is just one possible explanation for the shroud's origins.
The M10 and M11 series igniting fuses were used on low explosive-filled ones. In the M5, moisture could get in under the foil fuse cap, causing the weapon to fail to detonate.
But radiocarbon dating of the cloth in 1988 showed it likely came from the 13th century, not the first century when Jesus is thought to have lived. The team found that it's possible for certain types of rock to emit radiation when compressed.It was also commonly referred to as a "frag" grenade, in contrast to other types of grenades such as the Mk 3 grenade concussion grenade The Mk 2 used the M5, M6, M10, M11, or M204 series fuses.The early M5, and the later M6 and M204 series detonating fuses, were used on high explosive-filled grenades.In it they were trying to reconstruct the face on the Shroud of Turin, who many believe is Jesus Christ.Throughout the special, they were trying to disprove the scientific claims that the shroud is not the one that supposedly wrapped Jesus. I was watching a History Channel special last night.The Mk 2 was replaced by the M26-series (M26/M61/M57) and later M33 series (M33/M67).
