    Default World’s oldest photo analyzed

    http://www.msnbc.com/news/772860.asp

    "The image acknowledged as the world’s first photograph — taken by a French inventor in 1826 — has passed its first full-scale analysis with flying colors and is now awaiting an airtight case that will keep it safe for centuries to come, scientists said Wednesday."

    Wouldn't it be funny (or sad) if someone (maybe the cleaning lade) at the lab where the pewter (silver?) plate is being tested suddenly said "Hmmm... what a nice plate but looks a bit dirty, i try to wash it off with detergent".
