Research Question: What did the Inca create and how were they so good at sculpting?
Inca Freeze Dried Method
The Inca empire created something that NASA uses. The thing that they created freeze drying. In the highest point in the Andes mountains, freezing temperatures was guaranteed at night. They would bring potatoes and wrap them in a clothe. Then they would repeatedly
quizzes out the moisture until it is in a result known as chuno. This had many advantages for this, it was relatively light weight, it could last a long time, and they would eliminate some bitter taste that some potatoes have. If the Inca didn't make this many of NASA space rips wouldn't of happed.
Freeze drying potatoes was one of the ways to tout around potatoes and it not be fairly heavy.

Incan Stone Buildings
The Inca created sturdy stone building. They created sturdy building because they cut the stone so precise that they didn’t need to use cement. The material that they used was Yacuy limestone, Green Sacsahuaman, and Black Andesite. But to get these out of the mines were rough and tough, they were moved by using ropes, logs, poles, levers, and ramps. But all this hard work made the building last for a long time and surviving through many earthquakes.
