Meteorites From Under The Pyramids

Meteorites from under the pyramids

Samples of rock and fragments of pyramid walls brought from Egypt are being examined at the AGH University of Science and Technology. It is very likely that meteorites had dropped near the pyramids. The material was collected during the December expedition of geologists. Another aim of the expedition was to study some geoglyphics, i.e. gigantic pictures drawn on the ground.

According to "Dziennik Polski", the scientists were intrigued by some unusual structures, which resembled craters formed after meteorites hit the ground. They noticed them when analysing satellite pictures of areas north of the great pyramids in Giza.

“We found very solid metallic fragments in this area. These are probably meteorite fragments” – says Prof. Maciej Pawlikowski from the Mineralogy, Petrography and Geochemistry department at AGH University, who was the supervisor and main organiser of the geological expedition. “We hope that further tests on the patina covering the rocks, which formed during the meteorites’ fall, will help us to establish the exact time of the event” – the scientists said.

The aim of the expedition was also to study the geoglyphics, i.e. gigantic pictures on the ground. Located east of Cairo, they form two several-kilometre-long curved lines, which almost meet in one point. On satellite pictures, they look like a huge drawing of a scarab.

The origins of these mysterious structures remain unknown. “It is not known, whether they are made by man or a natural land formation. Up to now, there have been no publications on the subject” – said Prof. Pawlikowski.

The results of the Krakow geologists’ expedition do not confirm the research of American scientists, who claimed that the pyramids were built from prefabricates.

Well, if we can't have a good, solid "contrails" thread this weekend, I guess this post will have to do.

Similar type story. I have a couple of the Dakhla glass on my office desk.

I think we posted an FR thread on that article. King Tut has a piece of jewelery made from that glass.

I think "prefabricates" is referring to cement. Recent radiological studies of the pyramids and samples taken from them show that the blocks were not quarried and carried. Instead, cement was used to create the blocks.

The Egyptian Archaeological .... or whatever society, only recently allowed the sampling and radiological studying of the pyramids. I believe they wished to avoid confirmation of the theory that the pyramids were constructed using cement. The idea of cement kinda takes away from some of the mystique associated with the Pyramids.

Having said the above I don't why the posted article states, "The results of the Krakow geologists’ expedition do not confirm the research of American scientists, who claimed that the pyramids were built from prefabricates."
Maybe, I'm missing something.

It would have been nice to to see the satellite pictures of the craters and geoglyphs.

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to chip away at my ignorance.

I hadn't heard about the cement theory.

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic. "chip", "away at my ignorance"? Your statement is anything but concrete. Chaulk it up to me being a blockhead.

Sorry for my lack of clarity. I was trying to be self-deprecating, not sarcastic, because I was embarassed at how little I know of that subject.

Is the scarab drawing anything like the Plains of Nazca, in Peru, which also has giant drawings (spider, monkey, etc)?

I think "prefabricates" is referring to cement.

Technically speaking, "cement" is just an ingredient of concrete, along with aggregates, sand and water. It's the "glue" that holds it all together.

Don't know. Sure sounds similar though.

They were first popularly written about by Von Doniken decades ago in "Chariots of the Gods" I think. They can only be seen from the air.

Exodus 9

The Plague of Hail

8 Therefore, at this time tomorrow I will send the worst hailstorm that has ever fallen on Egypt, from the day it was founded till now. 19 Give an order now to bring your livestock and everything you have in the field to a place of shelter, because the hail will fall on every man and animal that has not been brought in and is still out in the field, and they will die.' "

20 Those officials of Pharaoh who feared the word of the LORD hurried to bring their slaves and their livestock inside. 21 But those who ignored the word of the LORD left their slaves and livestock in the field.

22 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand toward the sky so that hail will fall all over Egypt—on men and animals and on everything growing in the fields of Egypt." 23 When Moses stretched out his staff toward the sky, the LORD sent thunder and hail, and lightning flashed down to the ground. So the LORD rained hail on the land of Egypt; 24 hail fell and lightning flashed back and forth. It was the worst storm in all the land of Egypt since it had become a nation. 25 Throughout Egypt hail struck everything in the fields—both men and animals; it beat down everything growing in the fields and stripped every tree. 26 The only place it did not hail was the land of Goshen, where the Israelites were.
