Tomb of Osiris/Watershaft Latest

This message was posted by Nigel Skinner-Simpson to Graham Hancock's board:

'The last we heard from Dr. Hawass about the "tunnel" leading away from the third level of the Tomb of Osiris was that a japanese team would use a more advanced robot to continue the exploration starting on 9th June 2009. This has happened and Dr. Hawass spoke to a Mr. Keith Payne about the outcome during an interview on Friday 7th August. The interview covered many other areas and Mr. Payne has posted a complete transcript - see link at the end of this item.

"Regarding the 'Osiris shaft', Dr. Hawass was asked "Back in June there was supposed to be further exploration of the tunnel leading out of the third level of the Osiris shaft, under Khafre’s causeway. So has the Japanese robot already done its part there? What comes next?"

"to which he replied

'We did go over one hundred and fifty now into the shaft but we did not go to the end of it, we need maybe a snake robot because of the mud, the problem of the mud.'

"The obvious question is, one hundred and fifty what? I have emailed Mr. Payne in the hope it is an omission from the transcript rather than Dr. Hawass forgetting to say and will post an update if I get an answer.

"Mr. Payne's full transcript of the interview can be found at:

 It's important to note that the trajectory of the tunnel intersects with a large rectangular anomally detected by ground penetrating radar in the Dr. Abbas surveys of 1996.  That's why they are going through the trouble of  excavating in that direction.

There is something so snarky going on with Hawass as usual.
