For Hometown News
BREVARD COUNTY - Distinguished nuclear engineer Robert Rucker has come from Richland, WA, to the Space Coast to make presentations on the Shroud of Turin.
The Shroud of Turin is one of the most mysterious objects in existence because it contains full size front and back images of a crucified man without the use of pigment, and ancient tradition claims it is the burial cloth of Jesus Christ.
The title of Mr. Rucker's presentation is “Solving the Mysteries of the Shroud of Turin Through Nuclear Technology”. He will be speaking at 5 p.m. on Saturday Oct. 5 at the Holy Spirit Catholic Church at 2309 Holder Road in Mims.
Mr. Rucker worked in the nuclear industry for 38 years. For the past six years, he has been applying his engineering skills to solve the mysteries of the Shroud, including nuclear analysis and computer calculations to solve the carbon dating problem for the Shroud.
Mr. Rucker has written papers on the Shroud of Turin. All his writings are available on the RESEARCH page of his website at www.shroudresearch.net . Mr. Rucker spoke four times at a recent three-day conference on the Shroud of Turin in Ancaster, Canada.
