Archaeologists have made a groundbreaking discovery in the Great Pyramid of Giza. Using the power of cosmic rays, researchers were able to identify a hidden corridor within the pyramid. This marks the first time that the corridor has been seen by anyone in modern history.
The corridor was first discovered by scientists from the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities and the Scan Pyramids mission in 2017. However, until now, the corridor remained out of sight. The discovery was made possible by a technology called muography, which uses cosmic rays to create images of structures that are otherwise difficult to see.
The corridor is said to be located above the pyramid’s Grand Gallery and is around 30 meters long. It is believed to be a part of the pyramid’s internal structure and could have been used for ventilation or other purposes.
The discovery of the corridor is significant because it adds to our understanding of the Great Pyramid and its construction. Historians have long debated the purpose of the pyramid and how it was built, with theories ranging from it being a tomb for a pharaoh to a symbol of ancient Egyptian power and prestige.
The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex, located outside Cairo, Egypt. It was built as a tomb for the pharaoh Khufu and is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
The discovery of the hidden corridor is expected to provide new insights into the pyramid’s construction and could lead to further discoveries in the future. The Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities and the Scan Pyramids mission are planning to continue their research in the area and hope to uncover more secrets about this ancient wonder.
