'Big void' identified in Khufu's Great Pyramid at Giza
By Jonathan Amos BBC Science Correspondent


The mysteries of the pyramids have deepened with the discovery of what appears to be a giant void within the Khufu, or Cheops, monument in Egypt.

It is not known why the cavity exists or indeed if it holds anything of value because it is not obviously accessible.

Japanese and French scientists made the announcement after two years of study at the famous pyramid complex.

They have been using a technique called muography, which can sense density changes inside large rock structures.

The Great Pyramid, or Khufu's Pyramid, is thought to have been constructed during the reign of Pharaoh Khufu between 2509 and 2483 BC.

At 140m (460 feet) in height, it is the largest of the Egyptian pyramids located at Giza on the outskirts of Cairo.

MY advice would be to get a probe camera and light down there... can't be that hard with today's technology.

I KNOW Egypt (wisely) is careful about messing with/altering/damaging ancient monuments... but with proper care it should be considered.

Fascinating story. Makes me want to go watch a documentary on pyramids. ;)

"Our concept is to drill a very small hole to potentially explore monuments like this.
We aim to have a robot that could fit in a 3cm hole.
Basically, we're working on flying robots," he said.
