Historical archaeologists on Mt. Everest have discovered a patch of yellow snow that has been attributed to Sir. Edmund Hillary, the first man to climb Mt. Everest. The historical ice, buried by snow since his climb in May of 1953, was uncovered by a team digging at the locations of his camp sites.
The yellow snow will be sealed in dry ice and be divided into four sections. Thos pieces will be preserved in museums in Nepal, Auckland, London, and Washington, D.C..
Sherpas who assisted in the expedition that discovered the yellow snow are questioning whether or not it is actually Hillary's urine. They say that the odds are just as good that the yellow snow is a result of Tenzing Norgay, the Sherpa assistant on the 1953 climb. Their claim is based on the fact that the urine appears to be in a "T" shape, proving that Norgay was attempting to write his name in the snow one morning.
Due to their insistence, forensic anthropologists in Auckland will take a small sample of the urine and verify identity of the person.
The sample being sent to Washingon D.C. will be housed in the Smithsonian. It will sit alongside fecal samples of Neil Armstrong from his 1969 Lunar mission and Moon Walk.
