Relics from a Huntsville time capsule are now in a New York laboratory that specializes in removing moisture from precious artifacts.

The items were placed in a cryogenic freeze chamber Friday and will remain for about a week. Document Reprocessors of Middlesex, N.Y., is drying them using a vacuum freeze-drying technique.
