There are many popular science stories. But it is seen that only those stories which are projected as being researched become more famous. Though there is no harm in telling these stories, it does project a false picture of a scientific process and the working process of a scientist. The present paper introduces the Pennisilvia University's Criss Roses's successful attempt to search the answer to the story of Archemiemedes and his crown. [Eklavya]
