It's Egypt, Jim, but not as we know it!

Archaeology has been using infrared viewing technology to view areas of Earth's surface and underground from satellites around Earth's atmosphere. What they have revealed is amazing; undiscovered and lost pyramids and maps of entire cities, as seen below.

BBC1 are showing a programme on Monday 30th May at 8.30pm. I'll definitely be watching. I'm a little concerned that the presenter's look like Tombraider's cast doubles, but hopefully the programme will be a little more informative than the usual History Channel documentary, where you get thirty seconds of actual information slotted between twenty minutes of commercials.
