Big Question for 2012: The Great Pyramid's Secret Doors

"Will the mystery over the Great Pyramid's secret doors be solved in 2012?

I dare say yes. After almost two decades of failed attempts, chances are now strong that researchers will reveal next year what lies behind the secret doors at the heart of Egypt's most magnificent pyramid.

New revelations on the enduring mystery were already expected this year, following a robot exploration of the 4,500-year-old pharaonic mausoleum.

But unrest in Egypt froze the project at its most promising stage, after it produced the first ever images behind one of the Great Pyramid's mysterious doors.

Now the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA), once led by the controversial yet charismatic Zahi Hawass, is slowly returning to granting permits for excavations and archaeological research..."

The Supreme Council of Antiquities

You can't tell me that's not an awesome Orwellian ministry.

im still trying to think of a what you'd put up a long small tunnel in the middle of a pyramid. the only thing you could put in there is stuff put there as you built it. unless of course ancient Egyptians had robots.
