Great Pyramid of Giza's hidden chamber is revealed
Daily Mail ^ | 2 November 2017 | Harry Pettit

Posted on 11/02/2017 9:20:21 AM PDT by mairdie

The structure, also known as Khufu's Pyramid, is the sole survivor of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World. ... The scientists made the discovery using cosmic-ray imaging, recording the behaviour of subatomic particles called muons that penetrate the rock.

Detectors were set up inside the pyramid, including in the so-called Queen's Chamber.

This allowed the pyramid's insides to be seen without physically disturbing it, as the results showed empty space differently from rock.

The presence of the space, dubbed the ScanPyramids Big Void, was confirmed using three different detection technologies over several months after first being spotted, the paper said.

Fantastic work. Anyone interested in Egyptian archeology might enjoy the writing of Barbara Mertz, writing as Elizabeth Peters, in the Amelia Peabody mystery series.

Just checking to see if any emails were discovered in the chamber. You never know.

They couldn't come up with a better name?

Problem is that it will take them 20 years before the Egyptian red tape is cleared-up to actually see what this is.

But It will keep the Egyptian new-agers occupied.

What do you mean used to be? The pyramid was built to hide it and we just need the one of those crystal skulls to activate it.

Well, I wonder what’s in it.
They found green diorite in the construction rubble of the pyramid, but no green diorite in the known sections of the pyramid.
It’ll be interesting to see when they finally get around to looking, if ever.

With the lessons that have been learned since (example: The Curse of Oak Island... new season starts soon) they could make a long running series from it. Not some mere hour special.

The nearby dairy farm is full of cows getting their muon.

OK, I’ll be Sirius. Would there be any plans to attempt to enter the Void?

Has Jeff Sessions announced his recusal from investigations into this void yet?
