Robot to Probe Cheops Pyramid

Archaeologist plan on using a remote-controllable robot to explore deep inside the Egypt’s largest pyramid (again). Following the steps of the first bot send on a similar mission 4 years ago, the robot will descend down a narrow passage into the “Queen’s Chamber”. This gadget’s aim is to discover the mysteries beyond the “doors with copper handles” that prevented the original equipment from proceeding.

“Teams from Egypt and Singapore and a joint group from Britain and Hong Kong plan to insert the robot in February inside the Pyramid of Cheops at Giza, near to Cairo.”

It is not yet clear as to how the upgraded machine will prevail over the challenges faced by the previous robot, but it would be interesting to see what is guarded by the Egypt’s largest pyramid.
