The Keops' Pyramid has hidden a great secret so far: Archaeologists have discovered something that nobody has noticed for centuries

It has been many centuries since the construction of the Great Pyramid in Giza, which has hidden a great secret all the time. Until today

The international team of researchers involved in the “ScanPyramids” project discovered a hidden cavity in early 2015. The same research team had previously noticed thermal anomalies in the structure of the pyramid. Similar techniques of noninvasive mapping have now been applied with the help of muon, cosmic byproducts that only partially absorb the stone.

This method, known as mux radiography, functions as a x-ray image and allows 3D insight into space within the pyramid.

It can act as a science fiction but is similar to the method used for decades, but this time the instruments are much more sensitive.

It was found that the void is located just above the Great Gallery, the largest chamber discovered so far in the pyramids. It is estimated that the cavity is at least 30 meters in length and is in a section similar to the one in the Great Gallery.

 “Although we do not know what it was used, this discovery shows how much particle physics can help us in studying the archeological heritage,” the authors wrote of the newly published work.

They do not want to speculate on its architectural and historical significance, but hope that Egyptologists will be able to provide explanations with the help of the latest information.

To begin with, it is not known whether the cavity was parallel to the ground or was at an angle, similar to the Great Gallery.

Researchers say different tests are ongoing, and the public will soon be notified of the latest results.

“When you know the pyramid and know its perfection, it’s unusual to think that cavity is by chance,” they wrote.
