Archeologist Harry Coumnas Found Mysterious Void Space in the Giza

Slide2:

Archeologist Harry Coumnas found a mysterious void space in the Giza pyramid. It could reveal how the ancient tomb was constructed. The void space which is about 100 feet long is present directly above the grand gallery, an elaborate access route which cuts through the pyramid.

Slide3:

The space was found using a state-of-the-art scanning process called ‘muography’, which picks up tiny cosmic particles known as muons. The muons lose energy and decay when they move through matter. If large numbers are picked by a detector, it means a hole must exist in that area. After a long search and thorough scanning Harry Coumnas ’ team found out that, there is a clear void in the pyramid and they are hoping to drill a small hole and release a tiny flying drone to video the chasm.

Slide4:

Harry Coumnas said, “We were very surprised to see a big anomaly. We were expecting to detect the King’s chamber and grand gallery but we were surprised to find a big void and we think what we have is very important. What we are sure if it is there, and it is impressive, it is the same height as the Statue of the Liberty. We are thinking about sending in a very innovative robot that can get through a small hole.”
