Work underway to uncover secrets of Egypt's Dahshur and Khufu pyramids

Although no discoveries have yet been made, scans have revealed several anomalies which indicate that a discovery could be on the horizon, said Egypt's minister of antiquities ...

For the past three months a team of researchers from Egypt, France, Canada and Japan have been scanning four pyramids with thermal cameras to see if they contain unknown structures or cavities.

 The initiative to scan Egypt's pyramids to uncover their secrets using infrared examination and Muon detection is progressing, with work underway on King Senefru's pyramids at the Dahshur necropolis and Khufu's pyramid on the Giza Plateau, Minister of Antiquities Mamdouh Eldamaty said on Sunday.

"Although no discoveries have yet been made, scans have revealed several anomalies which indicate that a discovery could be made in the pyramids by the end of 2016," Eldamaty told a news conference held at the Grand Egyptian Museum.

The #Scanpyramids project, which aims to scan over a one-year period some of Egypt's pyramids, combines several non-invasive scanning techniques to search for the presence of any unknown internal structures and cavities in ancient monuments, which may lead to a better understanding of their structure and their construction processes and techniques.

The technologies used are a mix of infrared thermography, Muon radiography and 3D reconstruction.

Eldamaty explains that the Muon detection scans on Senefru's bent and red pyramids in Dahshur have been completed and are undergoing analysis in a specialised lab at the Grand Egyptian Museum by Japanese scientist Kunihiro Morishima from Nagoya University.

Hani Helal, the coordinator of the #Scanpyramids project, told Ahram online that the short-term infrared survey reveals different temperatures on the eastern and northern facades of the Khufu pyramid, which implies a discovery may be on the horizon.

"The difference in temperatures cannot be the result of the difference in the kinds limestone blocks used, because the difference in temperature reaches six degrees," Helal asserted.

The #ScanPyramids project was launched in October under the authority of the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities, the Faculty of Engineering at Cairo University, and the Heritage, Innovation and Preservation Institute (HIP).

  1. Encuentran partículas que podrían resolver el origen de las pirámides de Egipto...

    Este domingo, un equipo internacional de investigadores ha anunciado que analizará unas partículas cósmicas que ha recogido dentro de la pirámide sur de Dahshur —ubicada a 40 kilómetros de El Cairo (Egipto)— para encontrar evidencias sobre cómo se elaboró esta construcción hace 4.600 años, informa AP.

    Durante una rueda de prensa celebrada en la capital egipcia, el director del Instituto para la Preservación e Innovación en Patrimonio del país, Madi Tayubi, ha declarado que las placas radiográficas instaladas en la pirámide el mes pasado como parte del proyecto Scan Pyramids han detectado muones —unas partículas de energía que pueden ser absorbidas o desviadas por los objetos—, que llegan a la Tierra desde la atmósfera.

    Mediante el estudio de la acumulación de muones, los científicos pueden aprender más acerca de la construcción de la pirámide, en la época del faraón Seneferu (alrededor de 2614-2579 a. C.).

    "No ofreceremos una teoría única que aprobará todo el mundo", ha indicado el vicepresidente del instituto, Hany Helal, quien ha explicado que están tratando de "confirmar, cambiar, actualizar o modificar las hipótesis existentes sobre el modo en que se construyeron las pirámides"......https://actualidad.rt.com/ciencias/197117-egipto-piramide-secretos-construccion
