Unprecedented details about the internal architecture of the Great Pyramid of Giza's were revealed in further scans. The so-called Big Void within the Pyramid is now 40 meters long. Its contents remain a mystery to this day.
Back in July of two years ago, a team of researchers from across the world used cutting-edge equipment to scour the Great Pyramid of Giza for previously unknown chambers. Experts hoped that by studying the pyramid more closely, they would be able to learn more about how it was constructed and its significance. The group scanned the pyramid for hidden rooms that would remain invisible to the human eye and found one large, mysterious space.
Although we have yet to identify what tools and technologies were used by its ancient builders, we've learned that the pyramid is far more perplexing than we ever imagined, lurking in its rooms and passageways that we previously assumed didn't exist.
In May of 2012, Nature reported that a massive void was found within the Great Pyramid of Giza, just above the famed Grand Gallery. This discovery measured at least 30 meters / 100ft in length and marked the first major discovery made at the Great Pyramid of Giza since the 19th century.
In October of 2015, the Scan Pyramid project was announced. One of the biggest studies of the pyramid ever attempted has included experts from France, Japan, and Egypt.
ScanPyramids, as the project is known, is a cross-disciplinary international archeological initiative that employs cutting-edge non-invasive technology to scan ancient structures for hidden cavities, rooms, or tunnels. Infra-red thermography and muon tomography are employed.
Muon tomography employs cosmic ray muons to create three-dimensional pictures of volumes based on information registered in the Coulomb scattering of the muons. Because muons can go much farther than x-rays, experts employ muon tomography to produce images of objects considerably bigger than what is possible with x-ray imaging.
Muon radiography, on the other hand, will reveal distinctions in density within the Pyramid, allowing specialists to get an internal view of the monument.
Researchers have now confirmed a new video that the large void within the Great Pyramid of Giza has been verified by new scans taken from various locations inside the pyramid, including scans made from the so-called relieving chambers that are located just above the so-called King's Chamber.
Three distinct methods of muography were employed, each with its own set of limitations.
The first step was to coat the plates with a chemical film sensitive to muons. Another Japanese team from the KEK Institute brought and reassembled a very sophisticated device–part by part–in the Queen's Chamber; it was an electronic instrument that employed several methods to spot the muons.
The third group of French researchers placed equipment outside the pyramid. They set up "telescopes" with gas sensors and aimed them at the pyramid.
In 2016, the ScanPyramids devices detected a chamber behind the chevrons on the north face that had previously gone undetected.
New plates were placed in the descending corridors and niches of the so-called Al-Mamun tunnel in 2017, 2018, and 2019, respectively. The hole was discovered between 17 and 23 meters above ground level in all of the scans. This corridor is at least 5 meters long. It's horizontal and slope upwards are likely. Its goal is unclear.
However, the idea of a parallel corridor leading down to the sinking chamber was debunked.
The newest video also offers fresh information that validates the findings originally presented in 2017. The discovery of the void was certainly one of the most significant.
The Grand Gallery is located just above the void, no more than 15 meters above it. The new scans have improved our understanding of its minimum length to 40 meters in one part. Its slope, on the other hand, is still a point of contention.
The new scans were conducted by experts who installed new instruments in the Grand Gallery to view the "Big Void" from various angles. Several devices were placed along the Grand Gallery at Nagoya University. Other equipment was put in place in the King's Chamber and above-ground relieving rooms.
The Big Void was detected anew from the new measuring locations, as it had been from the prior ones, confirming and refining the findings revealed in 2017.
The devices placed above the King's Chamber within the Pyramid provided new insights into the structure. According to researchers, their most recent scans revealed no abnormalities between the arches, relieving chamber, and pyramid's peak.
In 2018, the ScanPyramids researchers placed their equipment inside the unfinished underground chamber of the Great Pyramid's predecessor to learn more about parts of the pyramid that were previously inaccessible. This new muon data collection is still underway, and experts are hoping to find new information about the monument.
The ScanPyramid project will continue, and new findings are likely to be reported near the end of 2021.
