The Shroud of Turin
The Shroud of Turin is back in the news. It turns out that the Vatican has secretly been allowing a scientist to perform tests on it for the past few months. Apparently the scientist is trying to get a more accurate reading of the exact age of the shroud's fibers, following criticism of 1988 tests of the age of the fibers.

What is special with The Shroud of Turin it's the disposition of the ears.
In fact, if I put a shroud on your face and I remove it after, the distance between your two ears should be about 25 cm. However, what we see on The Shroud of Turin is something that looks like a picture. It's physically impossible !
