MSNBC is reporting that Zahi Hawass is continuing with plans to further investigate the ‘air-shafts’ of the Great Pyramid. This week the big Z will inspect a robot built by a university in Singapore, and if all is well then he hopes the expedition will be complete within “a few months”. Researchers familiar with the ‘Gantenbrink saga’ will no doubt find much irony in Dr Hawass’ latest statements:
It’s very important to reveal the mystery of the pyramid. Science in archaeology is very important. People all over the world are waiting to solve this mystery. I believe that these doors are hiding something… It could be, and this is a theory, that maybe Khufu’s chamber is still hidden in the pyramid.
