Robert Bauval was born in Egypt in 1948. In 1989 he published a study which proposed that the layout of the three Giza Pyramids and their relative position to the Nile was intended to mirror the layout of the three stars in Orion's belt and their relative position to the Milky Way. This thesis, now known as the 'Orion Correlation Theory', became the subject of his first book, The Orion Mystery. Bauval is presently working on a new book, Sirius Rising, which will track the influence of the Egyptian star-goddess Sopdet (Sirius) from prehistoric times to the early Christian era, with special focus on her role in the rebirth cult and temple rituals and alignments.

Engineer & Egyptologist Robert Bauval discussed the recent revolution in Egypt, the fate of Antiquities Director Zahi Hawass, and some of the mysteries of the pyramids at Giza, and the Sphinx. Interestingly, while civilization has its roots in Egypt, the country has never had a democracy before, he noted, adding that pharaonic rule lasted for 3,000 years. First hour guest, Dr. John Abramson addressed the growing problem of prescription drug abuse (the Obama administration has just unveiled a plan to fight the epidemic). ... More »Host: George Noory

During the first half-hour, Richard C. Hoagland commented on the new exoplanet solar system discovery. ... More »Host: George Noory
Engineer & Egyptologist Robert Bauval discussed his research into the alignment of the Giza pyramids, and his theories about the Sphinx. Studying aerial photos of the Giza Plateau he saw that the three pyramids were lined up on a diagonal, with the smallest one offset to the left. An Egyptian dynasty text referred to a King that wanted to travel to the star Sirius. Bauval later connected the stars in Orion's belt (near Sirius) to the positioning of the three pyramids.His further research showed that shafts inside the Great Pyramid's chambers were pointed at stars in Orion, coinciding with where they would have been in the sky around 10,500 BC, suggesting the structures at Giza are much older than most Egyptologists believe. ...

In the first hour, Mike comes on to discuss the fall-out from last nights program.The Gantenbrink-Shaft Door inside the Great Pyramid will be opened September 16th, 2002. However, Rudolph Gantenbrink, the original discoverer of the door has not even been mentioned or invited to the event! In 1992 and 1993 Rudolf served as the responsible project leader of all three Upuaut campaigns. All of the projects were fully financed by Rudolf or by sponsors whom he had secured. His specific tasks included project preparation and implementation, design and construction of the technical equipment and vehicles, as well as evaluation of the collected data. Robert Bauval at the time was a close witness and is very informed on the issue. ... More »Host: Art Bell
