    Google Earth Satellite Images May Have Uncovered Hidden Lost Egyptian Pyramids


    Okay, so this is not directly Android related, but it is related to a Google product and service, so that's close enough to share this bit of intriguing news. Apparently some new Google Earth satellite imagery might have uncovered some unknown Egyptian pyramids. Here's a quote from the article with the details,

    What is believed to be two separate pyramid complexes may have been discovered using satellite imagery. The complexes are located about 90 miles apart. The satellite images show unusual groupings of mounds that have unusual features and orientations. The features were discovered by a satellite archaeological researcher named Angela Micol from Maiden, NC.

    One of the sites is in upper Egypt 12 miles from the city of Abu Sidhum along the Nile River. This site has four different mounds each with a larger triangular-shaped plateau. At this particular site, the two larger amounts are roughly 250 feet wide with a pair of smaller mounds measuring roughly 100 feet in width. The entire complex is arranged in a clear formation with the large mound extending the width of 620 feet, nearly 3 times the size of the Great Pyramid.

    90 miles north of the first site near the Fayoum oasis is the second pyramid complex believed to contain a four sided truncated mound approximately 150 feet wide. This particular site has a distinct square center, which is unusual for a mound of the size. 1.5 miles southeast of an ancient town called Dimai three smaller mounds were discovered in a very clear formation similar to the diagonal alignment of the Giza Plateau pyramids. Micol says that both sites discovered using Google Earth images have been verified as undiscovered by Egyptologist and pyramid expert Nabil Selim.
    Now, of course, these could turn out to be nothing but big natural mounds of rock and dirt, but wouldn't it be thrilling to find out they really are ancient lost pyramids? What's especially interesting is that one of the potential structures is so much larger than the Great Pyramid at Giza. It gets the imagination wandering. Hurray for Google tech potentially revealing parts of our past we didn't even know about!

    Maybe the triangle one is a huge space ship. That would be awesome. I want to captain the first ship for her interstellar tour!

    Hey you never know, in a sea of sand complete civilizations can be erased!

    Afterall, they did find a small stone 'ark' built around 18,000 years ago, well before humans started anything resembling a 'society' as we would know it. At least, that's what mainstream archeologists say.
    If you can't build it you shouldn't be using it.

    the goa'uld must have left one of their ha'tak on accident.

    there is speculation that the pyramid structures found around the world were actual landing pads for space ships... stargate just ran with the idea
