Mystery Void in Great Pyramid of Giza

One of the most monumental wonders of the world — Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza — actually contains a secret void at least one-hundred feet long.  Scientists just announced this discovery within the past week.  The actual space’s dimensions resemble that of the pyramid’s outstanding gallery.  That gallery is a one-hundred-fifty-three-foot-long, as well twenty-six-foot-tall strip which leads into the burial chamber of Khufu.  The monument was constructed just for Khufu.  

What makes this mystery so grand is the fact that specialists and scientists still have no idea as to what lies inside the space, what specific purpose it served and if the areas have multiple spaces within that one void.  What makes this mystery void so unique to report?  Keep in mind that this void is the first significant, inner structure which has been revealed within the 4,500-year-old pyramid since the 1800’s.  This discovery has been quoted as being the finding of the century, and it absolutely is.

This find was only possible by the current advances in high-energy particle physics.  The Great Pyramid is one of the most admired expressions of power and to discover a secret room inside puts the icing on the cake for thrill and exhilaration.  The pharaoh, Khufu constructed the pyramid for himself, and his power governed from 2509 B.C. to 2483 B.C.  The actual base of the pyramid extends across more than thirteen acres and at first standing, towers 479 feet tall.  Could you imagine how the Egyptians built such widespread and prestigious structures that far back?  Wonder if they had any assistance from a world beyond?  That in itself is a mystery altogether.  

The pyramid consists of around 2.3 million limestone blocks.  Those either had to be carried, transported, cut to smaller size, and of course, moved into perfect place.  Just think how brilliant the arrangements needed to be for a job that profound.  We can all agree that this “new” space found in the Great Pyramid of Giza has taken the Scientific world by storm and that within itself is one of the most significant discoveries of all.  Life is always changing, and when discoveries come into place, life becomes a little more electrifying.
