Scientists have recently discovered a ‘void’ in the Great Pyramid of Giza, which was built by a pharaoh named Khufu around 4,500 years ago. This pyramid is the largest one at Giza and is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Using scanning equipment and detectors that count the number of mouns, this thirty-meter space was found above the queen’s chambers after a large amount of mouns were detected. Mouns are particles that “come from cosmic rays striking atoms in the upper atmosphere. Once the particles fall and pass through different materials, they lose energy, causing them to slow and decay,” (CNN). The more mouns that are detected in the pyramid means that there is a large hole in that area. Before this space was found, there had been three rooms discovered and identified in the pyramid, including the queen’s chambers, the king’s chambers, and a passageway called the Grand Gallery. However, this “void” is the first major discovery of space inside of the Great Pyramid of Giza since the 19th century. What lays inside of this large space and the purpose it was used for still remains unclear.  This is because the use of intrusive equipment, such as  drilling holes through the pyramid’s stones or inserting a camera into the space, is banned due to the destruction it could present onto the pyramid.
