Texas Tech Helping With New York Disaster Plan

A disaster plan is being put into place for the Statue of Liberty in the event terrorists damage or destroy it. A team of architects from Texas Tech University has been working for two years on a digitized model of the Statue of Liberty. They have used a high-tech laser scanner to measure the statue's surface from all angles. Officials with the national park service tell the New York Daily News the plan could help create an accurate replica of the statue if it's ever damaged or destroyed. The daily news also reports the U.S. Capitol and Mount Rushmore have also been scanned into three-dimensional images.
