Storyline

It is one of the greatest mysteries of all time. How did the ancient Egyptians build the pyramids and lift obelisks? Theories about ropes, ramps, ingenuity and brute force abound. Even aliens have been credited. But there is still no definitive answer to solve this enigma. Now, an extraordinary new theory is put to the test. Is it possible that these ancient sailors could have also harnessed the power of the wind on land and used land sails - or kites - to help lift heavy stones? That is what Dr. Maureen Clemmons believes. With an elite team of Caltech aeronautical engineers to help her with her investigation, Clemmons puts her theory to the test and achieves the extraordinary. Written by Sean Flynn
