NEWS: What’s REALLY inside a pyramid: First 3D images created using cosmic particles show hidden tunnels inside mysterious structure

Last week, archaeologists revealed the first results of their work involving the Bent pyramid, 25 miles south of Cairo. The 3D images show the internal chambers of the 4,600-year-old structure, as well as clearly revealing the shape of its second chamber (Source: Daily Mail).

“The pyramids of Egypt have held their secrets for more than 4,500 years. 

Now, Egyptian and foreign experts have begun unraveling their mysteries with the help of space particles. The team are using ‘cosmic rays’ to create maps that show the internal structures of these ancient wonders – and they say they could hold some surprises. 

Last week, archaeologists revealed the first results of their work involving the Bent pyramid, 25 miles south of Cairo. The 3D images show the internal chambers of the 4,600-year-old structure, as well as clearly revealing the shape of its second chamber. 

Located at the royal necropolis of Dahshur, the Bent pyramid was one of the earliest to be built under the Old Kingdom Pharaoh Sneferu. It has two entrances, which opens onto two corridors leading to two burial chambers arranged one above the other. Some had suggested pharaoh Sneferu was buried inside the pyramid in an hidden chamber, but the latest scans have ruled out that possibility. 

The Scan Pyramids project, which announced in November thermal anomalies in the 4,500 year-old Khufu Pyramid in Giza, is coupling thermal technology with muons analysis to try to unlock secrets to the construction of several other ancient Egyptian pyramids” – via The Daily Mail.

  1. That’s great news Gemma I’d love to see what they might find in there .It seems every century something great in Egypt is found in 1822 the Rosetta stone found 1922 Tutankhamens tomb found and probably near to 2022 maybe Nefertities or some discovery in the bent pyramid or great pyramid .Looks like they will find something before the said date .

    • Here’s hoping! Looks like you have unearthed a pattern there though! Could be a good omen!

      • Thanks Gemma it looks like Egypt hasn’t given up it’s secrets yet I would love to back to luxor last time I went they were digging and finding things at the side of the Temple of Karnak with the political turmoil going on at the moment I don’t think we are allowed to go
