Dreamland this week: There is a void in the Great Pyramid at Giza. What is in it? What is it telling us about the lost past and maybe the future? Renowned expert Scott Creighton reveals research that suggests that what may be found in the void is going to not
There is a long-held belief that pyramid-shaped structures have the power to focus various energies, based on the extensive use of this geometric shape in many of the megalithic structures built by the ancient Egyptians, and the implied connection with the preservation of their dead.
Last November, the Scan Pyramids project unveiled evidence that there is a 30-meter (100-foot) chamber running above the Grand Gallery in the Great Pyramid at Giza. The image of the chamber, produced by muon tomography (basically an x-ray of the pyramid, made using cosmic rays), is unfortunately imprecise, leading to a wide variety of ideas and speculation as to the chamber’s function and what may lie within. One such idea has been put forward by a Italian astrophysicist/archaeoastronomer Giulio Magli, in that it may contain an iron throne for the pharaoh to sit upon, as part of his journey into the afterlife.
A new scanning technology using deep-penetrating cosmic rays has revealed a large, 100-foot-long chamber inside the Great Pyramid at Giza. This chamber, simply called "ScanPyramids Big Void" for the time being, sits high above the Grand Gallery, at roughly the height of the top of the King’s Chamber, and appears to be the same dimensions as the Grand Gallery itself.
