This is a documentary about the missing manuscript written by Archimedes.
In 1991, a small Medieval prayer book was sold at the Christie auction.
Miraculously some original writings of Archimedes were discovered hidden beneath the religious text.
Through scholarly detective work with the help of modern technology, this book now reveals Archimedes' stunning original concepts, ideas, and theories.
If known sooner, these revelations might have reshaped our world.
It is an amazing, fascinating and inspirational documentary you should NOT miss.
