The ScanPyramids Project

Venerdì 11 gennaio 2019, ore 14.30, aula Caianiello, Dipartimento di Fisica Ettore Pancini

Just because a mystery is 4500 years old doesn’t mean it can’t be solved.
Many theories and hypotheses have been published trying to understand how the Great
Pyramid of Egypt ‘Cheops’ was built. None of them has been proved so far.
Could New Technologies reveal the mystery of one of the Seven World Wonders? This is
what ScanPyramids project is about.
It is a multinational project (Egypt, Japan, France and Canada) using the most
recent non-invasive and non-destructive techniques to “look” through the Pyramids
and detect unknown significant voids. Infrared thermography, Muography and 3D
Reconstruction, Modeling and Simulation are used to complement each other.

Two main discoveries have been confirmed and published, one on the north entrance of
the Pyramid and the second is a Big Void above the grand Gallery.
