 Wind, Pyramids and Obelisks: Using Winds to Make the Megaliths of Egyptian Antiquity

New York, NY (June 4, 2012) - Famed National Geographic expedition leader and innovator, Dr. Maureen Clemmons, developed a theory that the ancient Egyptians, being sailors, used the wind to erect their monuments, and tested this theory on a small scale using a 400-lb. obelisk and some store-bought kites. Despite the resounding success of this Goddard-esque field work and mathematical models, skeptics abounded and could not get Egyptologists to even evaluate the idea. She defied these criticisms by collaborating with California Institute of Technology's aeronautics professor, Dr. Morteza Gharib, in constructing a 3.4-ton obelisk that was lifted off the ground with two men in 25 seconds. Her story is one of perseverance in the face of skepticism - the importance of innovative thought and its translation into reality using all available resources.
