Infrared thermography, muon detection, ultrasound, and ground penetrating radar, all confirm it. There IS more inside the pyramid than is publicly known. Some are convinced that they’ll finally find a mummified pharaoh in an Egyptian pyramid for the first time in history.
For now though, the corridor appears to be a dead end (footage of it revealed in the video), but it still suspiciously points toward what muon detectors previously found to be a “second grand gallery”.
It all stinks of theater and corruption with Zahi Hawass infecting the area, but I’m no less geeking out at the prospect of touring the whole pyramid on my next trip to Egypt.
Agreed it really is. When I was a kid I had a history book that had this great full color illustration of Napoleons troops in Egypt set to a backdrop of the Pyramids. Wish I could find that book today.
That picture kickstarted my interest in ancient Egypt.
It always irked me how abruptly they would stop talking about the pyramids and start jumping into the Valley of the Kings crap. Nothing ever made sense about these structures, and likely never will. They’re all nothing but a husk of whatever they used to be.
But, if something were to ever actually be found in there, maybe we could finally get a small glimpse of the actual, working purpose of these “tombs”.
