Virtual Autopsy Table on Vetenskapens Värld tonight

17 September, 2012 - 09:05

Don't miss our Virtaul Autopsy Table on SVT2 Vetenskapens Värld this evening at 20:00! Vetenskapens Värld is showing the American science show NOVA and the episode Forensics on Trial where the Virtual Autopsy Table is featured.

From the NOVA website about Forensics on Trial:"There is a startling gap between the glamorous television world of “CSI” and the gritty reality of the forensic crime lab. With few established scientific standards, no central oversight, and poor regulation of examiners, forensics in the U.S. is in a state of crisis. In "Forensics on Trial", NOVA investigates how modern forensics, including the analysis of fingerprints, bite marks, ballistics, hair, and tool marks, can send innocent men and women to prison—and sometimes even to death row. Shockingly, of more than 250 inmates exonerated by DNA testing over the last decade, more than 50 percent of the wrongful convictions stemmed from invalid or improperly handled forensic science. With the help of vivid recreations of actual trials and cases, NOVA will investigate today’s shaky state of crime science as well as cutting-edge solutions that could help investigators put the real criminals behind bars."
