Space technology should finally answer some big questions about the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. Archaeologists at Cornell University want to survey the entire pyramid with equipment that scientists usually use to search for very faint stars in space. They want to designate two spaces on top of the building.
We know that these spaces exist from a previous examination, measuring the decay of cosmic particles inside the pyramids in 2017. This indicates that there are two holes inside, the largest of which is probably about 30 meters long and 6 meters high. but what is specially† What is in it?
