The Upuaut Story
The Great Pyramid is the biggest among the three pyramids in Giza, and sometimes referred to also as the First Pyramid or the Pyramid of the King Khufu. It has been counted among the Seven Mysteries in the World since early times, but its purpose still remains unknown. There are plenty of books written on the Great Pyramid, but most of them are for general readers.
In the early 1990s, German engineer Rudolf Gantenbrink explored the inside of the Great Pyramid by sending a remote-controlled robot through four small tunnels called "air shafts" with their openings measuring about 20 by 20 centimeters extending some ten meters into the Pyramid. As a result, he discovered a door with copper handle at the end of the air shaft extending southward from the Queen's Chamber. Gantenbrink: ""We are not discovering anything in the Great Pyramid, there is nothing really remaining to be discovered inside."
Here is the website of Rudolf Gantenbrink: The Upuaut Story.
This web site contains a complete scientific report about the investigation of the so-called "air shafts" inside the Great Pyramid of Cheops, and all related additional information. It includes a set of 4 extremely detailed CAD drawings, 27 explanatory graphics and 61 original photos.
|Another series of pages that attempt to cast some light on the questions: What is the story behind the shaft which passes through the subway under Khafre's Causeway? Is it a shaft tomb of the twenty sixth dynasty as described by Dr Selim Hassan, or does it have some connection with the ancient mystery schools of Egypt?|
The Shaft, The Subway & The Causeway
And Today? Once again Dr. Zahi Hawass, chief of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities, has announced an expedition to investigate the 'doors' found in the shafts of the Queens Chamber in the Great Pyramid: "I dedicated my whole life to study the secrets of the Great Pyramid and I must say that these doors create many exciting questions ... I can only say that this year I will reveal the secrets of the Great Pyramid doors."
