New Probe of Khufu Pyramid Shafts

Zahi Hawass is doing it again: another robot will be sent in to the great pyramid of Khufu (a.k.a Cheops) to reveal what is behind the mystery shafts. Maybe, maybe there is a chance that there is another burial chamber. Maybe Khufu's mummy is still in the pyramid while he is enjoying eternity, as gods should do. Hawass, the director of the antiquities department, is making the right decision: even if there is only the slightest chance, why not try it? And finding Khufu will make him an immortal too; at least in the world of archaeology. But what about Khufu who built a 145 metre high grave to protect his right to rest in peace? Of course he couldn't have anticipated specially designed robots from Singapore. And perhaps the old wrap was stolen a long time ago. We'll see, eventually we'll know. Until then, let's be excited!
