Cazab asks: “And the next question is : in 1988 was it possible for Tucson to do measurements with only 3 mg (27/8=3.375) ?”
It is obvious that we don’t know from the Tucson lab how they handled the material and which measurements went with which subsamples. Do cutting diagrams exist? Do accurate weights and measures exist? Are there detailed chemical analyses? Were measurements really combined as some believe and if so why? How much material was retained? Was some of the fabric from the Shroud of Turin in a desk drawer until recently? Why the absence of details? Why the lack of transparency? Are there no detail records?
