FROM SPACE                                                                                                     continued

Other Indians informed Fawcett that some of the ruined cities were still inhabited by a few descendants of the original builders and that certain savage Indian tribes formed an insulating protective barrier against intruders.  Colonel Fawcett, searching for these mysterious cities for a number of years, occasionally met survivors of treasure-hunting expeditions whose companions had died or disappeared into the jungle.  Fawcett himself vanished into the Amazonian jungle near the Xingu River in 1925.

His words before his fatal last expedition might serve as his epitaph:

"Whether we get through, and emerge again, or
leave our bones to rot in there, one thing is certain.
The answer to the enigma of Ancient South America -
and perhaps to the prehistoric world - may be found
when those old cities are opened up to scientific
research.  That the cities exist, I know."

If such cities exist in the Amazon Basin, they may eventually be found by satellite photography, although the South American rain forest is so thick that it is often referred to as the "green sea"
and is frequently shielded from observation by the cloud cover standing over much of its area.

New techniques of photography, however, pioneered in such disparate sites as over the planet
Venus and Guatemala, may solve this problem.
