April 2015 Where The Heck Is It?
Surprising evidence has recently turned supporting the oft-claimed idea that ancient Egyptians had space travel. This structure, with its cylindrical core, is the remains of one of the rocket launch facilities. Giant rockets up to 50 feet across left this site regularly to support trade routes to the moon and Mars until all of a secret fuel ingredient was consumed. Unable to find a substitute, the space industry collapsed.
Or do you have another idea? If so:
1. What is the official name for this facility and the immediately surrounding area today?
2. What was its importance in Late Egyptian history?
3. What was the site's name in ancient Egypt?
Bring your answers to the April ARCE meeting where you can win prizes by answering these questions.
