Could New Technologies reveal 4500 years’ mystery of the Great Pyramid of Egypt Cheops? The ScanPyramids Project

Il seminario, a cura del Dipartimento di Fisica Ettore Pancini, dell’INFN sezione di Napoli e del CNR, è aperto a tutti gli interessati.


Just because a mystery is 4500 years old doesn’t mean it can’t be solved. Many theories and hypotheses have been published trying to understand how the Great Pyramid of Egypt ‘Cheops’ was built. None of them has been proved so far. Could New Technologies reveal the mystery of one of the Seven World Wonders? This is what ScanPyramids project is about. It is a multinational project (Egypt, Japan, France and Canada) using the most recent non-invasive and non-destructive techniques to “look” through the Pyramids and detect unknown significant voids. Infrared thermography, Muography and 3D Reconstruction, Modeling and Simulation are used to complement each other. Two main discoveries have been confirmed and published, one on the north entrance of the Pyramid and the second is a Big Void above the grand Gallery.
