This is why technology continues to amaze me – “Infrared satellite survey reveals 17 lost pyramids” http://ow.ly/54oRq

When you start to think about the undiscovered cultural treasures that exist under the shifting sands of a desert, at the bottom of an ocean, or lost deep within the wilds of a jungle – technology (especially satellite photography and GPS) is an absolute miracle.  Hopefully we’ll see more discoveries like this one and we will have the good sense to ensure that the gains are used to benefit to local populations, quite unlike the explorations of the 19th and early 20th centuries.
