While the science team has reportedly announced their plans back in January, the COVID-19 pandemic and the travel restrictions that were implemented by a number of countries to curb the spread of the pathogen have apparently led to the project being put on hold.
Researchers studying the mysteries of the Great Pyramid of Giza may be on the verge of a breakthrough as they seek to determine whether the millennia-old monument conceals a certain hidden chamber, the Daily Express reports.
According to the newspaper, while there has been “no development” after the ScanPyramids project yielded the discovery of the “Big Void”, a previously unknown 30-meter cavity located above the Grand Gallery, this situation “could be set to change” as Japanese researchers seek to employ muon radiography to determine “what lies within”.
While the team from the Kyushu University reportedly announced their plans back in November, this year’s global coronavirus pandemic and the travel restrictions that were implemented by a number of countries to curb the spread of the pathogen have apparently resulted in that undertaking being put on hold.
The data obtained via a “newly developed muon detector”, which will be set to operate in the Queen’s Chamber for a month, is going to be combined with findings from drone survey to determine “what lies inside”.
