New Satellite photos of Egypt
Thanks to the ingenuity of US Egyptologist Dr. Sarah Parcak and her research at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. A new ancient Egypt is being brought to life as documented by the Discovery Chanel program Curiosity: Eygpt: What lies beneath? But for me, the true fascination is the technology used to find the 17 new pyramids, 1000 tombs and 3000 ancient settlements.
For years infrared satellite technology has been used to track weather patterns, locate wildfires, look for new planets, and find the bad guys, just to name a few. As technology continues to advance, our knowledge of the world around us, past, and present, will expound exponentially. And maybe one day we might finally find out who really helped the wheelless Egyptians build their wonders over 5000 years ago with nothing but sticks, copper, stone and a piece of string.
Who else is looking forward to what new things they might find under the sands of Egypt? I would love to hear from you.
