The Great Pyramid of Khufu is one of the largest structures built by man even today 4,500 years since its construction.  It is estimated that 2.3 million blocks averaging 2.5 tonnes a piece were used in the building the Pyramid with weights of the blocks ranging from 2 to 15 tonnes.  The pyramid sits on 13.5 acres of land and is 480 ft high.  The length of its sides are 756 ft and it is estimated to have taken 100,000 men over 25 years to build the pyramid.

Now 4,500 years after it’s construction The Great Pyramid of Giza seems to still be hiding the secrets of its creators.  Scientists using new technology think they have found two previously-unknown cavities within the structure.  Scan Pyramids, a collaborative project involving a number of universities, companies and scientific institutes, have been using muography, thermography and 3D simulation to discover more about the pyramid.

Through muography, researchers say they’ve detected an unknown cavity on the North Eastern edge of the Pyramid, and another unknown void behind the pyramid’s descending corridor.  To read the full story please use this link to The Telegraph –
