What Is Behind the Second “Door” in Cheops Pyramid Shaft?

 Not drawn to scale, but to show location of the two "doors," about 215 feet up narrow 8-inch-diameter "air-shaft." 4th Dynasty Great Pyramid of Cheops built for Khu-fu, King of Egypt 2900? to 2877 B. C. The four narrow "air-shafts" leading from the Queen's Chamber, King's Chamber and the Subterranean Chamber have long baffled archaeologists about their true function. If Cheops was truly the King's burial chamber and transition site from this life to the afterlife, what would need airshafts? If linked to stars and constellations, why would there be stone blocks in them? Why are "Door One" and "Door Two" only seven inches apart?

September 21, 2002 Washington, D. C. - On Monday night, September 16, 2002, a television program co-produced by the Fox network and National Geographic was broadcast live from the great Cheops pyramid near Cairo, Egypt. The title was Pyramids Live: Secret Chambers Revealed. The goal was to have the television audience, Egyptologists and other scientists discover at the same time what was behind the little Tura limestone "door" bearing two small copper handles that blocks the southern "air-shaft" which extends from the so-called Queen's Chamber below the King's Chamber. Egyptologists generally agree now that since the Queen had her own burial pyramid, the chamber below the King's Chamber must have had another purpose.
