A canadian student has found the lost city of Maya on the star card

15-year-old William of Gauri all of a sudden became a star in scientific circles. The pattern that he discovered, allowed us to find previously unknown ancient Mayan city, hidden under the forest canopy. However, the expedition there in absentia recognized as very expensive.

The teenager from Saint-Jean-de-Matha, in the canadian province of Quebec became interested in archaeology after the boom of publications about the end of the world in 2012, supposedly predicted by the Mayan calendar. As reported by portal Gizmodo, after studying the maps has already been found by cities of a bygone civilization by William Gadoury I thought – why the location of the cities of this ancient culture at first glance seems completely illogical?

– I didn’t understand why the Mayans built their cities away from the rivers, on marginal lands in the mountains, – quotes the portal is an excerpt from an interview with Gauri newspaper Le Journal de Montreal. – They had to have another cause. And as they worshiped the stars, I came up with the idea. I was very surprised and excited when I realized that the most brilliant stars of the constellation correspond to the largest cities of the Maya.

The young man carefully studied the charts of the constellations, maps of the known Mayan city, and the suspicion was confirmed. As it turned out, the brightest stars coincide exactly with the location of the largest Mayan cities in Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. As reported in The Telegraph, before no scientist has noticed this connection.

But in one place of Gauri found a mismatch. The star was all signs bright enough to see the Mayans gave it prominence, but the city at the appropriate place (deep in the dense jungle of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico) was not.

Deciding to test the theory until the end, the teenager-the researcher contacted the Canadian space Agency. The Agency did not dismiss the student, but instead gave him a batch of satellite images from NASA and JAXA (Japanese aerospace exploration Agency). And in that place, which William carefully looked at, really found the geometric structure is too regular to be natural objects.

Presumably in the forests of Mexico fled one of the largest Mayan cities, pyramids and about three dozen smaller buildings. The discoverer named the city K AAK Chi, meaning “Mouth of fire”.

While there is only one problem – finding is one of the most remote regions of the country, and the cost of the expedition are expected to be very large.

But it would be the culmination of three years of work and dreams of my entire life, ” admits William of Haduri.
