Since the International Space Station to install earth observation window, where astronauts can take pictures of the Earth, NASA recently also help enthusiasts around the world to help it identify Earth photos, these photos taken by space station astronauts, but many photos are shooting at night, only showing a road map city lights, so these photos need to distinguish between lovers worldwide. Recently, NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman announced the Egyptian pyramids in space shooting, compared to the city lights at night, it is very easy to identify the pyramids of Egypt, the pyramids of Egypt, after all, is a distinctive building on the planet.
As can be seen from the figure was hatched three pyramids are arranged according to Reed Wiseman’s introduction: There is no doubt that this is the great Pyramids of Giza, Cairo city is surrounded, in fact, not a single Giza Pyramids a pyramid, but by the Pyramid of Khufu, Khafre pyramid and the pyramid composed Mankaura, which was built in 4500 years ago, the Great Pyramid is still standing on the edge of the Nile in Egypt. Shooting pyramid does have some different feeling from the Earth’s orbit, after all, this is a brilliant symbol of ancient Egyptian civilization, is a relic of the ancient civilization left to future generations.
Earth when shooting from the space station, astronauts usually choose some famous attractions, the pyramids of Egypt is one of them, astronauts often discussions about the mysteries of the pyramids built by Reed Wiseman believes the construction of the pyramid is an impossible completed works, according to current engineering and construction technology, we need to invest a lot of heavy machinery to build a similar building in the desert, spending should be quite amazing, but no heavy machinery in the ancient Egyptian era, Egyptians need to distant place the stones transported to the building, then in how they do it, this is the archaeologists have been studying the subject.
Last week, on the arXiv blog published results of a survey that the ancient Egyptian architect may carry stones by bowling here, this is the ancient Egyptians built the pyramids we guess the best way, from Indiana State University The researchers believe that the ancient Egyptians Joseph West, there may be other better way, regardless of how the construction of the Egyptian pyramids called miracle of human civilization.
Interestingly, the Egyptian pyramids as tombs for pharaohs, ancient Egyptians believed that the afterlife can let Pharaoh find a channel through the pyramids and mummies technology, if the track taken from the pyramid of Pharaoh saw the picture, they do not know what to think.
