After the succesful robotic explorations under the UPUAUT project by Rudolf Gantenbrink, a Singaporean university
team will conduct further explorations of the mysterious shaft inside the Great Pyramid, according to Dr. Zahi Hawas, Chairman of the Supreme Council
of Antiquities of Egypt. "Stone doors inside the Great Pyramid could not just be there as an ornament. They must have a function and hide something
behind them," he said.
The University of Singapore is currently designing a robot to reach beyond the door which blocked the route of the robot used by the US National
Geographic in September 2003, said Hawas in statements on Saturday.
The new experiment will be conducted in October 2005, added the SCA head.
The Geographic's tiny robot crept through the Great pyramid in a bid to demystify what is inside the Pyramid only to face a new puzzle.
The tiny robot -named the pyramid Rover -took two hours to crawl through a narrow shaft in the Great Pyramid of Cheops, drill through a door at the
end and push through its camera only to come face to face with another door.

I think it could hold all kinds of things from treasures to another more secret burial vault. I doubt that there are two doors and nothing is in
there. It will be interesting to see, I hope it is successful.
