THIS may be the most promising test telling us who built the pyramids. Out of all of archaeology, you would be hard pressed to find a more discussed and debated topic as the pyramids in Egypt. From heiroglyphics, to carbon dating and other methods, it seems as if the only fact that archaeologists agree on is that they are old. And now they will be using “space stuff” 😉 left inside the pyramids:
An international team of researchers will soon begin analysing cosmic particle data collected from inside Egypt’s Bent Pyramid, in the hopes of gaining insight into how the 4,600-year-old structure was built – including signs of any hidden passages or chambers.
For the past month, researchers have had highly sensitive detectors tucked away inside the pyramid, collecting data on invisible subatomic particles known as muons, which are constantly raining down on us from Earth’s atmosphere.
Let’s find out what these cosmic muons might mean on the next page
