Robot to Search Great Pyramid


In 1992, a robot was sent into one of the Great Pyramid of Khufu's shafts to explore its contents. Upnaut 2 found limestone doors with brass handles. National Geographic sent in a drilling bot sometime later and discovered a second door. Now Leeds University's Dr. Robert Richardson has planned a third excursion that will probably take about 5 years to complete. By the end the drillbot, equipped with camera, may discover lost secrets in the Queen's chamber.
