After just two weeks of the thermal scanning in the Egyptian Pyramids of Giza, amazing results of the 4,500 year old wonder has produced anomalies in the largest Giza Pyramid, according to the Antiquities Ministry on Monday 9th November 2015.
Jean-Pierre Houdin, French Architect was considered for his theory on the pyramid construction, also spoke during the press conference in front of the Giza Pyramids on Monday.
Use of infrared thermmography, muon radiography (cosmic rays),and photogrammetry scanners, helped to provide and show, that the pyramid projected higher temperatures in stone that were detected adjacent to the bottom of the pyramid. This projected was assisted by technical experts and Mamdauh el-Damaty, Antiquities Minister of Egypt.
The thermal scanning indicated that “a particularly impressive one (anomally) located on the Eastern side of the Khufu pyramid at ground level,” as stated by the ministry.
The scanning took place during all hours of the day and night, which included mostly of the sunrise and sunset. This is where the change in the sun’s radiant heat would affect the structures on the outside of the pyramid the most; and again, the speed of the cooling down phase for sunset, which was used also, to help discover this hypothesis that there were curious empty areas within the pyramids. This was also due to the result of recognising the difference in materials that were used for building the pyramids, and that of internal flows of air currents.
As El-Damaty points at the three stones showing higher temperatures, he explains. “The first row of the pyramids’ stones are all uniform, then we come here and find that there’s a difference in the formation.”
El-Damaty continues, ” that there is something like a small passage in the ground that you can see, leading up to the pyramids ground, reaching an area with a different temperature. What will be behind it?”
Experts explain that higher heat levels were noticed in the pyramids upper half areas, and need to have more investigation to take place.
During this project and investigation, all Egyptologists were invited by El-Damaty to help assist and join in with this research to help form ideas as to what lays behind this Egyptian architectural anomaly.
Fact The Great Pyramids were built in the fourth dynasty, between 2575 B.C. – 2465 B.C., and are located on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt. Also known as one of the last surviving monuments of the Seven Wonders of the World.
