Space archaeologist: Sarah Parcak

She's been called a real life Indiana Jones but Sarah Parcak, a self-described "space archeologist," says Indy has nothing on her.

"I'd take him on in a search for archeological sites and I'd win," the 33-year-old says.

Parcak uses infrared satellite imagery to uncover Egyptian ruins --pyramids, palaces, and tombs; ancient civilizations thought buried forever. Her work is mind-boggling and is literally transforming the field of archaeology.
