Scientists discover a chamber hidden in the great Egyptian pyramid

The purpose of the room is not clear, and it is not clear yet if it was designed for a function.

The newly discovered room does not seem to be connected to any known internal passageway. X-ray, only much deeper. Their article was reviewed by peers before appearing in Nature, an interdisciplinary international scientific journal.Scientists, according to the AP wire service, have made the discovery using cosmic ray imaging, recording the behavior of subatomic particles called muons that penetrate the rock in a similar fashion.

The pyramid is also known as the Khufu Pyramid for its builder, a pharaoh of the 4th Dynasty who ruled from 2509 to 2483 BC. Visitors to the pyramid, on the outskirts of Cairo, can walk, leaning over a long tunnel to reach the Great Gallery.

The experts are still divided on the way they were built, so even relatively minor discoveries generate a great deal of interest.The Pyramids of Giza, the last wonder of the ancient world, have captivated visitors since their construction as royal tombs 2,500 years ago.
