Check it out! There's this site with high resolution images of Otzi the Iceman. Here: http://www.icemanphotoscan.eu/

You can zoom in on the mummy, check out his tattoos under white and UV light, and look at a bunch of 3d photos of him (if you've got some blue and red glasses ready. I did, for some reason.)

It's pretty cool, so go check it out. Be aware though: you will be looking at pictures of a naked dead man, who is thousands of years old. Otzi has lost those particular parts that make a man most naked, but still, consider yourself warned.

You can interactively zoom into and pan around these high-resolution images from the Spitzer Space Telescope. JavaScript and a current installation of Flash are required.
