Recently, a team of Egyptian antiquities researchers announced a breathtaking discovery made inside the Great Pyramid of Giza, one of the world’s most iconic landmarks. The discovery was a hidden nine-meter corridor behind the pyramid’s main entrance that could lead to further finds.
This discovery was made as part of the Scan Pyramids project, which uses modern technology, including muon scanning, to look inside the pyramid.
The Scan Pyramids project was launched in 2015 with the aim of using modern technology to study the Great Pyramid of Giza and uncover its secrets.
The project used various advanced technologies such as infrared thermography, muon radiography and 3D modeling to create a complete picture of the pyramid’s internal structure.
The recent discovery of a hidden corridor behind the pyramid’s main entrance is a significant breakthrough for the Scan Pyramids project. The corridor is about nine meters long, and it is still unclear where it leads.
However, the discovery has raised the possibility that there may be other hidden passages and chambers inside the pyramid.
The opening of the corridor caused great excitement among archaeologists and Egyptologists around the world. It is hoped that this discovery will lead to further discoveries that will shed light on the construction and purpose of the pyramid.
The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex.
It is believed to have been built by Pharaoh Khufu during the Fourth Dynasty, around 2560 BC. The pyramid was built using approximately 2.3 million stone blocks, each weighing about 2.5 tons.
The pyramid has an impressive height of 147 meters and has been the tallest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years.
