pyramid-khufu-entrance-2015-10-26-02The pyramids are some of the most ancient buildings known to man. Whether you believe they were constructed entirely by man or with the help of aliens is a debate for another day, but even until today, there are mysteries surrounding the constructs that have yet to be revealed. However a new project has been launched that will hopefully uncover more secrets.

A team of experts from Japan, France, and Canada will be helping Egypt’s antiquity ministry in helping discover how the pyramids were built, and if possible locate more secret/hidden chambers within. This will be done by using scanners and rare esoteric cosmic ray detectors which will be able to map the interior of the pyramids, like the Pyramids of Cheops and Chephren at Giza.

This is possible due to the fact that the cosmic ray, also used by Japan’s Fukushima reactor, is much more powerful than your typical X-ray and will be able to penetrate much deeper, thus allowing the researchers to find potential voids within the structure that could indicate a chamber or tunnel, or could also clue them in as to how these pyramids were constructed.

That being said, while the technology is pretty advanced, they will still take weeks to complete and even then, the scans will be somewhat low-resolution. However according to one of the participating French researchers, “A similar attempt was made 30 years ago, but this is the first project at a global level using cutting-edge technology to look inside the pyramids. The idea is to find the solution to the mystery of the pyramids.”
