Kate Hudson believes aliens built pyramids

JEDDAH: Did aliens built Egypt’s pyramids? Actress Kate Hudson seems to think so.
Following the announcement of the discovery of a passenger plane-sized chamber in the Great Pyramid, Hudson posted news of the discovery on Instagram, writing: “Yup! They’re coming.......BACK! #PrettyFunBookTour #GonnaThrowAPartyForTheAliens”
The pyramids of Giza are said to be aligned with the most powerful stars in the night sky, and experts say the techniques required to build them were not developed until centuries after they were built. This had led alien theorists to believe that extraterrestrials had a hand in their creation.
Hudson’s light-hearted comment, which she linked to her book tour, led some Egyptian fans to invite her to their country.
“Visit Egypt, you have lots of fans,” said @nahla_darwish.
“u gotta come for a visit sometime just like Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, we had the pleasure (of) having them in Cairo,” wrote @mk_mohamedkarim.
Others criticized the 38-year-old actress for linking the pyramids with aliens.
@twgrandstaff wrote: “This discovery has nothing to do with an update on aliens. That chamber has been there since the pyramid was complete, they just discovered it with new technology.”
Scientists with the ScanPyramids project revealed on Thursday that the void discovered with subatomic particle scans was the first major structure found inside the pyramid since the 19th century.
It is thought to be at least 30 meters long and located above the “Grand Gallery” — a sloped corridor almost 50 meters long and nine meters high which links Khufu’s burial chamber at the pyramid’s center to a tunnel leading outside.
The pharaohs of ancient Egypt built these monumental tombs for themselves, complete with sarcophagus to hold their embalmed mummies, and stocked with everything they would require for the afterlife, including food, clothing and jewelry.

Han Solo’s ‘Return of the Jedi’ blaster sells for $550,000

  • The faux weapon, mainly made of wood, had been put on display in New York by Julien’s Auctions last month after more than 30 years tucked away in the belongings of James Schoppe, art director of “Return of the Jedi”
  • Martin Nolan, the auction house’s executive director, said Schoppe, an Oscar nominee for his work on the film, finally decided to part with Solo’s gun and about 40 other items from the movie, including an Ewok axe and plans for Jabba the Hutt’s ship

WASHINGTON: In the wildly popular “Star Wars” films, Han Solo once told a lightsaber-wielding Luke Skywalker: “Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.”
That was the case when one of the blaster pistol props used by Harrison Ford in “Return of the Jedi” (1983) went under the hammer, selling for $550,000 — topping the $450,000 previously fetched by Skywalker’s lightsaber from the first two films.
“SOLD for $550,000! An original Han Solo blaster used in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi!” Julien’s Auctions announced on Twitter Saturday.
The faux weapon, mainly made of wood, had been put on display in New York by Julien’s Auctions last month after more than 30 years tucked away in the belongings of James Schoppe, art director of “Return of the Jedi.”
Martin Nolan, the auction house’s executive director, said Schoppe, an Oscar nominee for his work on the film, finally decided to part with Solo’s gun and about 40 other items from the movie, including an Ewok axe and plans for Jabba the Hutt’s ship.
The Ewok axe went for $11,250, while another blaster prop from the film fetched $90,624, according to Julien’s Auctions.
But none of the props were a match for the space saga’s much-loved droid: last year, an R2-D2 used in the making of several “Star Wars” films sold for $2.76 million at auction in Los Angeles.
