Dear People,

Below is a copy of a letter I have written to send to the Editor in Chief of National Geographic (but have not yet sent it). Please read it, and let me know if you would like to have your name added to the list of Gantenbrink supporters at the bottom of the letter. Please let others know about this letter of support for the Gantenbrink Team to National Geographic. They may want to add their names as well. The more names, the better. They can send their names and the names of countries where they reside to one of my alternate email addies, reflectingswan@yahoo.com. They can use the email subject line of 'Gantenbrink'. This will alert me to the nature of the email. Please real names and real residing countries only, one signature per person. This is in effect a petition for justice for the Gantenbrink Team in a major international publication.

Editing suggestions on the letter welcome also right here at the GHMB. But please keep suggestions short and to the point. Time is an issue in regard to this matter. Please do not send editing suggestions to the reflectingswan email addie.

----------

Dear NG Editor in Chief,

National Geographic has had a long and well respected presence as an educational resource; but there is something happening at this point that greatly concerns many of us around the world.

This is in respect to the upcoming National Geographic documentary titled, 'Egypt - Secret Chambers Revealed'. It is our current understanding that this documentary will be centered completely around the work of Zahi Hawass and Mark Lehner. It is also our current understanding that this documentary will in no way include or even mention Egyptology researcher Rudolph Gantenbrink and his team, who actually discovered the internal structures of the Cheops Shafts, and the ‘door’ in the Southern Shaft of the Queen’s Chamber of Cheops Pyramid on the Giza Plateau, Egypt. Mr. Gantenbrink’s research into the shafts of the Cheops Pyramid was accomplished with the Upuaut Project robots, which he and his own team developed, built, and used for this purpose at their own expense. Without the research work of the Gantenbrink Team Mr. Hawass and Mr. Lehner would be completely in the dark about the internal structures of the shafts within the Cheops pyramid, as they themselves and their teams did not do this research.

In fact, the work of Mr. Gantenbrink and his team is so well known, that the upper ‘door’ in the Southern Shaft in the Queen’s Chamber is known to many of us around the world as Gantenbrink’s Door. Just one quick search using one engine on the internet proves this point very rapidly. Mr. Gantenbrink’s Team and many of us have been waiting for opening of the ‘door’ of the Southern Shaft of the Queen’s Chamber for several years.

Also very well known, is the Gantenbrink website The Upuaut Project at: [www.cheops.org]

Perhaps, somehow, the administration of National Geographic has not been aware of the Rudolf Gantenbrink Team and their research, but you are now. If there is any justice and integrity in the attitudes and policies of the National Geographic administration; then we the international public are asking that Mr. Rudolph Gantenbrink be given due credit and voice for his and his team’s years of hard work, discovery, and personal expenditure regarding the archaeology of the Cheops Pyramid. In particular, the work and discoveries by the Gantenbrink Team regarding the Cheops Pyramid Shafts, certainly deserves full credit and voice.


Sincerely,

Jean Allain, United States of America

Your names will be added here right next to mine. It would be good to give your real name and the name of the country where you reside. It is important that National Geographic understand that Rudolph Gantenbrink is well known and supported on an international level.
