The-Giza-PlateauThe secrets of ancient Egypt may no longer be a secret anymore. Scientists from the Egyptian department of antiquities will begin scanning the pyramids using cosmic rays and thermal imaging to look inside the pyramids that are over 4,500 years old. The study, know as “Scan Pyramids”, will begin with the scanning of four pyramids: The Bent Pyramid in Dahshur, the Red Pyramid, and the two Giza Pyramids of Cheops and Chepren. The goal of this study is to discover any hidden chambers within these pyramids. These scientists, with the help of foreign language translation services, have the potential to fill in the gaps in our knowledge about the pyramids’ mysterious purpose and design, while drawing in tourists from around the world, who are interested in better understanding the secrets of ancient Egypt. This new scanning technique was designed to ensure that nondestructive technologies are used in the scanning process. The scanning will also help architects and archeologist understand how these ancient monuments were built in the first place, which is still one of science’s greatest mysteries.
