Pascal Cotte @ Arizona Science Center In conjunction with the Arizona Science Center's ongoing exhibit "Da Vinci - The Genius," French engineer Pascal Cotte will discuss his invention, the 240-megapixel Multi-spectral Imaging Camera, which he created in his efforts to preserve the Mona Lisa. The device allowed Cotte to scan the famed painting and reveal its many layers, as well as 25 discoveries included in the exhibit, on view through June 9.
