Dear Walt,
Here are the photos and some titles for inspiration:
Archaeological sensation
Prehistoric space launch facility found in the Great Desert

Two-stage spaceship excavated intact

Artifacts date back to 100,000 BK

CG shows how it may have worked

Relating content: Interpretation of scripts and drawings in the pyramids:

(The ship) consists of a lower part and a upper part.
5 souls [join/unite with] the lower part, 1 soul [joins/unites with] the upper part.
Fire [from/by/of/in] Tut-Un Jeb-Ahn lifts (the ship).
Lower part helps upper part (getting to the skies), falling halfway.
Upper part gets to the skies and performs [ceremony/sacrifice].
So that (the skies) are pleased.

Therefore, regarding to your question, we think it is not meant to be recovered. It will most probably stay in orbit as part of the sacrifice to the skies. The water steam RCS system should be for keeping pointed at the sun/moon. We didn’t find signs of reaction wheels.
Some other details about the ship available at

We look forward to your analyse about the fuel mixture.
See you at the conference next week!
