A Hidden Chamber Has Been Found In Egypt’s Great Pyramid

Ngebray.com,- A hidden chamber has been found in Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza. A team of scientists found the 30-yard void deep within the structure. The scientists used cosmic-ray imaging in making the discovery by recording the behavior of subatomic particles called muons that penetrate the rock similar to X-rays. They said the 30-meter void deep within the pyramid is situated above the structure’s Grand Gallery. It’s the first such discovery in the structure since the 19th century.

The purpose of the chamber is unclear and it’s not yet known whether it was built with a function in mind. The chamber is situated above the pyramid’s “Grand Gallery”. It’s not known if the chamber was built deliberately or what it was for. Experts are still divided over their construction, so even relatively minor discoveries generate great interest.
