Egypt SHOCK: Architect had meeting with ancient pyramid designer – it's not what you think

A GREAT Pyramid expert was given a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet with the man who designed and built the greatest pyramid of all time.
At the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, the treasures of the pharaohs are on display. Millions of pieces chronicle the prestigious history of one of humanity’s most brilliant civilisations. But, paradoxically only has two elements are directly linked to the Great Pyramid.

Architect and Great Pyramid expert, Jean-Pierre Houdin was given a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet with the man who designed and built the greatest pyramid of all time.

In Amazon Prime’s “The Khufu Pyramid Revealed”, the documentary shows Jean-Pierre meeting face-to-face with the iconic statuette.

Ironically, it is the only image of Khufu that has survived is just a few centimetres tall, a minuscule ivory figurine discovered by chance in a temple in 1903.
The little seated figure is the only three dimensional depiction of Khufu which survives largely intact, though there are also several statue fragments.

Despite the absence of monumental statues or bas-reliefs, Khufu’s memory is still very much alive.

An enigmatic Sphinx, he continues to intrigue the entire world with the mystery of how his pyramid was built.

Khufu came to the throne, probably during his twenties, and at once began work on his pyramid.

The entire project took about 23 years to complete, during which time 2,300,000 building blocks, weighing an average of 2.5 tons each, were moved.

His nephew Hemiunu was appointed head of construction for the Great Pyramid. Khufu was the first pharaoh to build a pyramid at Giza.
The sheer scale of this monument stands as testament to his skills in commanding the material and human resources of his country.

It is now believed the pyramids were built using conscripted labour rather than slaves.

The idea that Khufu used slaves to build the pyramid comes from Greek historian Herodotus.

He also describes Khufu as a cruel and wicked leader who prostituted his daughter when he ran short of money.

But the Westcar Papyrus describes Khufu as a traditional oriental monarch: good-natured, amiable to his inferiors and interested in the nature of human existence and magic.

Stephen Hawking's Final Book gives brief Answers to Big Questions

Stephen Hawking's final work was launched by his children on Monday which discuss issues from Existence of God to Time Travel and other big questions. His children completed his final book after he died last year.

Stephen started his book last year to answer the common question which he encountered many times from public. The title of the book is ''Brief Answers to Big Questions''.

His daughter, Lucy Hawking, said he was regularly asked for such question and this book contains his clear and most authentic answers. We all wish he was here to see it published, she added.

What are these big questions and what did he write answers to them?


Is there a God?How Did it All Began?What is inside a black hole?Can we predict the future?Is Time Travel possible?Will we survive on Earth?Is there any other intelligent life in Universe?Should we colonize space?How do we shape the future?Multiple challenges Stephen Hawking says the simplest explanation is that God does not exist and…

Russia Trying to Bring back Extinct Animals

A research facility is being settled in a region of Russia by Vladimir Putin at 4th Economic Eastern Forum which aims to study the remains and clone extinct animals like woolly mammoth, woolly rhinoceros, cave lion and breeds of long-gone horses of old times.





The investment sought for this project is 5.9Million USD.

The animals which could weight 6000 kg have been disappeared from that territory about 4 thousands years ago.

About 80% of the samples of the extinct animals with preserved tissue have been found in this region Siberia .

It will be the first US mission since the retirement of the shuttle in 2011.NASA's astronauts are currently using Russian made Soyuz spacecraft and its contract will end in June 2019.NASA said on 4th of the October that it will give monthly updates 


Phil McAlister who is the director of commercial flights in NASA said in Blog that 

New Updates schedule is better but launch schedule may be uncertainHe also said these are new spacecraft and lot of engineering work has to be done before take off.

Back in 2014 both the SpaceX and Boeing received $6.8bn from NASA to build spacecraft that will take humans to ISS.

Boeing has said they will be ready for Orbital Flight Test in March 2019.
The Success of this manned space shuttle will be a great achievement of the commercial space industry, and NASA will …
