Believe it or not….this is a post that isn’t related to arcade games!
I’ve been very interested in the whole deal with the pyramid shafts they found in the Great Pyramid in Egypt. For those that aren’t familiar with what I’m talking about, this site has a ton of info on it written by the guy that did most of the modern analysis of them.
Basically, there are these 2 pyramid shafts coming from a chamber in the Great Pyramid that were hidden for a long time. They are small (something like 8″ x 8″ …not positive…read the damn web page above!). Rudolf Gantenbrink sent some robots he designed up the shafts and found doors blocking the path. He was shortly denied further access to explore and continue with his findings, and nothing happened for years due to bureaucracy.
Zahi Hawass, (note the “ass” in his name) had a live special on the Discovery channel years ago about this. He pretended to be Indiana Jones, and sent a robot back up to drill through the doors. They did it live, and found another door. Rather than continuing to explore this obviously important discovery, they just sat on their
hawass and did nothing, again for several years. I’m guessing that they’ve already explored these shafts further and know what is behind the doors, and just hid it from the public. Just a hunch, but we probably got shafted (so sorry for that horrible pun).
Anyways…this isn’t huge news but the first thing they’ve said in a long time regarding this. According to Zahi, they will reveal what is behind those doors this year.
Whether it actually happens is anyone’s guess, but I have my fingers crossed.
