Astronauts turn archeologists to document space station 'dig sites'

In a recent scene familiar to many, even those not well-versed in the discipline, a researcher marked off square areas in order to catalog the layers of contents buried within. These "test pits," which were similar to the squares made at the sites of ancient cities and bygone civilizations, were based on a basic technique practiced by archeologists.

Only this time, the researcher was an astronaut and the "dig sites" were on board the International Space Station (ISS).
