    Archaeologists Just Found A Hidden Chamber In The Great Pyramid

    Archaeologists Just Found A Hidden Chamber In The Great Pyramid

    A lot of people have talked about this possibility for a long time. I wonder exactly where the tunnel leading to the chamber is- I went into the Great Pyramid in 1988. I would like to go back. I was 18 then and didn't really appreciate the significance of the experience.

    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.84)]The pyramids were built more than 4,500 years ago, but weren’t explored with modern technology until the 1800s. The mysterious structures are thought to be, basically, elaborate graves for the Egyptian pharaohs. A pharaoah was like a king and a pope combined, since he or she had absolute political and religious authority (which in retrospect seems like a not-great combo).
    [/COLOR][COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.84)]The pyramids are huge: the Great Pyramid, which is also known as the “Pyramid of Cheops,” was the biggest man-made structure in the world for thousands of years, before being eclipsed by the Eiffel Tower in 1889.

    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.84)]Despite a ton of human interest, so much about these beautiful structures is still unknown, like how they were built, and whether there are still creepy burial chambers inside that archaeologists haven’t found yet.

    [/COLOR][COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.84)]The researchers, who were sponsored by the government of Egypt, used an advanced method called “muon detection” to find the concealed space. Muons are tiny particles created when cosmic rays collide with our planet’s atmosphere. Thousands of them hit every square foot of Earth a minute, and then get absorbed by the bedrock under our feet.

    [/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.84)]The Egyptian research team that found the hidden chamber haven’t actually been inside it yet, so there’s no word on what it smells like. Probably… musty?[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.84)]Also, nobody seems to know what the heck the pharaohs were using it for. One geologist quoted in Nature says the room could be a passageway to a larger hall, higher up in the pyramid, which is, um, seriously spooky. Because, what’s in the larger room that’s been concealed there for [/COLOR]four freaking millenia[COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.84)]?[/COLOR]

    They are finding more and more faster with the new technology. Someday we will get to some defininitive truths about our past
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    How about letting us know they found a hidden tomb and whats inside it. Rather than releasing the fact that they found a hidden tomb.

    Quit milking it.
