I was just watching a documentary on NatGeo about an hour ago about the pyramids and learned something absolutely
Coming of the two main chambers are (for lack of a better term) vents going diagonally up and out of the pyramids, but there are no exits locations on
the exteriors of the great pyramids. Dr Zahi Hawass
(as seen on TV) often theorizes that there are
still treasure caches to be found and (I quote) "..will be the greatest discovery in Egyptology, maybe even the world." (At least I think that's
what he said)
In 1993, Hawass with the aide of a German robotics team, drove a probe up the vents (from the interior) only to come to a limestone barrier. Some were
very frustrated, so they did some probing and found that the limestone was 3" thick.
So in 2002, they returned to try again, this time with a drill on the probe. It crawled up the vent to the barrier again, and drilled a hole in which
a small endoscope was inserted.
And what did they find????
Why, another barrier of course!
Hawass remains hopeful that that headway and discoveries will be made.
The thing I felt the most intriguing was that some invasive scans were done (x-ray style, I'm not sure exactly what it was) that suggested that in
fact extra chambers do exist high in the structures. The scans showed that there is low density areas high up in the pyramids reminiscent of
So I was just wondering, what do you guys speculate are in there?
