Kryptos sleuths may finally get some help cracking the CIA sculpture that has confounded amateur and professional cryptographers for two decades.

Artist Jim Sanborn, who created the cypher sculpture in 1990 for CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, plans to release a new clue to help puzzle detectives solve the last 97 characters of his masterpiece. The new clue is to be revealed in a New York Times article this weekend, to mark the 20th anniversary of the sculpture, which was dedicated Nov. 3, 1990.

It will be the first clue Sanborn has revealed in four years, after he corrected a typo in his sculpture in 2006 to keep crypto detectives from being derailed in their search for solutions.


Kryptos Artist to Reveal Rare Clue

---------------------------------------------

The clue will shown in the New York Times article, celebrating the Kryptos 20 Year Anniversary.. Of the 4 sections of the Krypto's 3 have already been deciphered back in 1998, but the 4th one, 97 characters has yet to be. Check out the link to see what was deciphered from the 3 sections.

I think I'll just stick to my connect-the-dot puzzles.

Years ago i tried to get on the Kryptos decipher bandwagon. It was over my head then. Maybe i'll try again with this new clue.

I'd laugh if it turned out to say something like "The NSA are better"

Or "MI6 / MI5 are better"

I think it says "All your base are belong to King Tut."

Always loved reading about Kryptos, I think its a phenomenal piece. I read the news this morning and am pretty excited to see if it will benefit those who are working on the puzzle.



"In part of the code that's been deciphered, I refer to an act that took place when I was at the agency and a location that's on the ground of the agency," Sanborn told Wired News. "So in order to find that place, you have to decipher the piece and then go to the agency and find that place."

Sanborn may be referring to something he buried on the CIA grounds, though he's not saying. The decrypted text mentions a burial and gives latitude and longitude coordinates (38 57 6.5 N, 77 8 44 W), which Sanborn said referred to "locations of the agency." The coordinates, slightly altered, appear on the Da Vinci Code book jacket. Brown made the first number 37 instead of 38; he's said that he may reveal the reason in future books. Some sleuths have determined that the coordinates on the sculpture mark a spot on the CIA grounds about 150 feet from the sculpture. Others have placed it elsewhere, however.

I can read it, it says
"Screw you all, we run the world, do what we want, and you will never know about it"

Could it get any better than that? The unsolved part must be anticlimactic.

The new clue appears to be some kind of base 6 resonance from what I can tell looking at it briefly.
Check this series out.

NYPVTT maps to Berlin maybe someone on ATS can post the message.
BERLIN 12, 18+2, 24+3, (30+4-24), (36+5-30), (42-36)

Did anyone solve this yet? Maybe there is a link to the long lost secrets of the knights Templer hidden in a secret underground location at Tempelhof airport? The story about a fortune of gold flown out of Berlin aboard Wagners JU52?
