      Soaring Stones: A Kite-Powered Approach to Building Egypt's Pyramids
It s an unforgettable sight innovation expert Maureen Clemmons can lift and fly massive objects, including five ton stones, with little than a steady wind and a good kite.But did the ancient Egyptians do the same thing when hoisting immense obelisks and pyramid stones Egyptologists say no Clemmons, backed by a decade of field tests and a Caltech aeronautics team, isn t so certain especially when she learns the Egyptologists will not consider evidence from anyone outside their insular field Buoyed by grassroots support and determined to show her children that science is for everyone, she launches into a series of stunning, block heaving experiments that draw national news coverage and open up a dangerous opportunity to try lifting a sixteen ton, twenty five foot tall megalith as the History Channel s documentary cameras roll.Can a backyard scientist lift such a massive stone using wind Clemmons unrelenting efforts not only advance a simple Eureka moment to the halls of academia but prove an important point you don t need a degree, just an inspired idea and some passion, to be a good scientist.Written by Time science contributor Dan Cray.
