The Great Pyramid Void: Unlocking an Ancient Mystery The Micah Hanks Program

    • Science

For centuries, myths and legends have hinted at the existence of hidden chambers within the Egyptian pyramids and the surrounding Giza complex. From an alleged secret tomb of the Pharaoh Khufu, to a "Hall of Records" that has long been speculated to exist, the search for secret areas where ancient knowledge about the history of Egypt might exist has tantalized scholars for decades. 
This week on The Micah Hanks Program, we explore how recent scientific developments led to the discovery of a mysterious void within the Great Pyramid at Giza, and look at how ancient history, as well as particle physics, might offer clues about what could await within.
