But apparently he was not entirely convinced with what he saw and decided to open the project up to competition.
Even the view of the opposite block was limited by the quality of the light.
The Djedi Project is not just the new mission to explore the pyramid shafts—it truly is the next generation in robotic archaeology.
Beginning with Waynman Dixon’s iron rods, researchers have been probing the Great Pyramid’s mysterious claustrophobic passageways for 140 years.
What the Pyramid Rover team discovered was a small chamber formed by the Tura limestone U-block, the basal stone, the blocking slab/door, and a rough block of the local limestone on the opposite side, about 19 cm away from the “door.” But the probe camera had its limitations.
