Lecture: New Discovery of the Pyramids with Yasser Elshayeb

The Intersection of Arts & Sciences
Wednesday, September 26
Holloway Hall, Great Hall, 7 p.m.

Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza contains a hidden void at least a hundred feet long. Despite being one of the oldest and largest monuments on Earth, there is no consensus about how it was built. To better understand its internal structure, the pyramid was imaged using muons, which are by-products of cosmic rays that are only partially absorbed by stone. These results constitute a breakthrough for the understanding of Khufu’s Pyramid and its internal structure. These findings show how modern particle physics can shed new light on the world’s archaeological heritage.

Sponsored by World Artists Experiences, Inc. and the Embassy of the Arab Republic of Egypt, Washington, D.C.
