Viewers of the television event will be able to go on a live archaeological expedition deep inside the secret and complex shafts within the Queen's chamber in the Great Pyramid, also known as Khufu's Great Pyramid, after the Egyptian Pharaoh who is believed to have built it.
National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Zahi Hawass, who is now head of Egypt's antiquities, along with American archaeologist Mark Lehner, will serve as the expedition's leaders. During the special, Hawass and Lehner will offer answers to two of history's most perplexing mysteries—how the Great Pyramid of Giza was built and who executed the awe-inspiring enterprise.
.............The Queen's chamber inside Khufu's Great Pyramid
contains architecturally complex shafts, whose function and purpose remain
unknown to this day. With a custom-built robot equipped with fiber-optic
lenses, high-resolution cameras, and the world's smallest ground-penetrating radar antenna, the archaeologist team will travel deep into the mysterious shafts, attempting to peer beyond a blocking stone
to look for new clues about Pharoah Khufu and his Great Pyramid.
