26 May, 2011

A team in University of Alabama in Birmingham, USA have discovered 1,000 tombs, 3,000 ancient settlements and 17 pyramids via satellite infrared survey.

According to BBC the team analysed images from satellites orbiting 700km above the earth, equipped with cameras so powerful they can pin-point objects less than 1m in diameter on the earth’s surface.

Infra-red imaging was used to highlight different materials under the surface.
