Using the by-products of the cosmic rays, the great pyramid revealed a large chamber that was identified earlier. This was inside the Great Pyramid in Giza, Egypt of 4500 years old. Since the 19th century, this was the first discovery with some major new space that you can find in the pyramid. But Egyptology abandoned the idea of finding any kind of lost treasure in this long void of 30 meters.
However, the experts have a hope that any kind of finding related to this structure might reveal how amazing this pyramid was built. The pharaoh Khufu who reigned from 2509-2483 BC made this Great Pyramid. The pyramid was made of limestone and granite blocks and rises to some 139 meters. This is also one of the oldest and the largest Giza pyramids which survived to date form the ancient world.
The Chamber Layout Of The Great Pyramid
Some periods from this period sits the burial chambers from the underground. But this Great Pyramid that Khufu made has many large rooms inside the structure. It has the king’s chamber and this still has the stone sarcophagus. There is a Queen’s chamber which is small in size and a sloping pass way which is called the Grand Gallery.
In the 9th century, these large chambers were discovered and extensively explored by the Western Archaeologists. But still some researches believe that the pyramid may have many more chambers. Or there may be a real burial chamber of the king that needs to be discovered.
The researches used a technique that is made in the high energy particle so that they could see through the Great Pyramid. They then tracked the particles that are called muons. The muons is produced when the upper atmosphere, that’s the cosmic rays strike the atoms. Every minute around 10000 muons pour down on each of the square meters of the earth’s surface. Many muon detectors are made to be used in the accelerators of the particle. Hence, that they can know about the inner structures of the volcanoes. Also they can know about the damaged nuclear reactor of Fukushima, Japan.
The Maps Of The Muon
A physicist from the Nagoya University, Japan named Kunihiro Morishima along with his colleagues placed many detectors inside the Queen’s chamber. Here they observed the muons. And from above the muons would pass through the pyramid. The stones partially absorbed the particles. Hence any kind of large hole in the pyramid means more muon than the expected. And this can hit the detectors.
Many teams went there to examine it. They found that there is a large space in the same place above the Grand Gallery that is approximately 30 meters long. You will find this in the same cross-section of the Grand Gallery. The Grand Gallery has a high stepped ceiling with mysterious ceilings. And this is what makes the Grand Gallery one of the most remarkable rooms that was ever made in the ancient world.
