It an intersting thing that there are people who trying to regain it and I read it story in the national geographic ( old issue not sure when it is.)

Here is something intersting a new device that will reveal some of the writing:

They already use a some sort of laser graphing process for a lot of old manuscripts, such as stuff recovered from Babylon, to digitally preserve it. It looks like this will be the next step up, pretty interesting. Some of the scrolls recovered in 47' were in really really crapy condition. The Great Isaiah scroll was the only one that was fully intact.

the biggest problem is who is going to pay $520 mil and where it is going to be built?
