Field Museum scientist Chris Brochu, right, with the skull of Sue the dinosaur. The skull has been sprayed with a polyurethane foam and crated for shipping to an undisclosed site where it will receive a computed tomographic (CT) scan. Museum carpenter Sheldon Moy, left, was assisted by Henry Tucker, Jr. in building the crate. Sections of the rear of the 1,800-pound skull are only 1mm to 2mm thick, said Brochu, making it "like one giant chocolate Easter rabbit."
