Mysterious 'void' discovered in the Great Pyramid of Giza using cosmic rays

Posted November 03, 2017

The discovery has also drawn skepticism from archaeologists who believe the void doesn't hold any new secrets and is just a part of the pyramid's construction thousands of years ago. These particles rain down and lose energy as they pass through materials - like the thick stones of the pyramid - and that makes them slow down and decay.

The Great Pyramids of Egypt have been around for something like 5,000 years now and they've been an endless object of human fascination, so you'd think that after generations and generations of life between then and now, we would have discovered pretty much everything there is to know about these ancient triangular structures.

The report says the mysterious void is 98 feet long and sits above the structure's Grand Gallery, located in the center of the landmark.

"The Great Pyramid is full of voids".

"They are top and play well with a lot of goals.but we have a lot of games to play, we will see at the end of the season". I am answering very well about these different issues".

"What is unusual, for me, is to use those very, very small particles for a huge monument like the pyramid", says Tayoubi.

While future research and non-invasive imaging are to be done by researchers, there are no plans to open up the void given the pyramid's importance and with no known pathways or tunnels connect to it.

The scattering of the muons was recorded on an extremely sensitive photographic medium known as nuclear emulsion film, which had been positioned in the Queen's chamber, inside the pyramid.

They saw those rooms but, to their surprise, they found an additional large space as well. Using that same technique and two others, they were able to discover this hidden void that no other team has been able to find before. "The good news is that the void is there, and it's very big", he said.

"We don't know whether this big void is horizontal or inclined; we don't know if this void is made by one structure or several successive structures", explained Mehdi Tayoubi from the HIP Institute, Paris.

In the past, before the modern science of archaeology evolved, folks sometimes blasted through walls in the pyramids, says Manuelian. "I hope that, in collaboration with the Egyptian antiquities authorities, further exploration will be set in motion".

He added that using the technique to investigate other pyramids could help reveal their significance: "This work has the potential to convert locally important monuments into internationally important sites". "So any new contribution is always a welcome addition to our knowledge".
