Cosmic rays will help reveal the secrets of the pyramids

(ORDO NEWS) — Scientists intend to scan the Great Pyramid of Giza, and for this they will use cosmic rays.

The fact is that there are voids in this pyramid. The largest of them is located directly above the large gallery – a passage that leads to what may be the room of Pharaoh Cheops.

Scientists do not yet know what these voids are for. The most fantastic version is that the largest room is a hidden burial chamber of Cheops. A more mundane version suggests that the cavity played a role in the construction of the pyramid.

Between 2015 and 2017, a series of scans were carried out, during which muons, cosmic particles that regularly hit Earth from space, were analyzed.

These scans revealed both voids in 2017. Now scientists are planning to scan the Great Pyramid again, but this time with a more powerful system. She will be able to analyze the muons in more detail.

Unfortunately, this whole process will take several years, so we will not know about the discoveries soon.
