STURP

In 1978 a large team of American scientists traveled to Turin, Italy to conduct an in-depth scientific examination of the Shroud. In Turin they were joined by a number of international colleagues. The expedition, under the auspices of the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP), was the first such extensive scientific examination of the Shroud, and remains to this date the most extensive hands-on study of the Shroud ever undertaken. The STURP team spent over two years prior to embarking for Turin planning dozens of specific data gathering experiments, measurements and tests. To support the effort they carried several tons of support equipment and scientific instruments. The team arrived in Turin in early October 1978 following a public display of the Shroud to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Shroud's arrival in Turin. For five (5) full days from October 8th through the 13th the STURP team studied the Shroud around the clock in a large room at the royal palace adjoining the Turin Cathedral. Each 24-hour period was broken down into shifts that allowed the work to proceed uninterrupted while some STURP staff slept and others conducted research. To learn more access the links below:
