Yoram Yasur Izz : It seems that we knew all about the Egyptian pyramids and tombs. But science never stops, and thanks to modern technology new amazing discoveries are made which, in turn, raise new questions.
– Secret chambers in the Great Pyramid of Giza: In 1993, with the help of the robot “Upuaut II”, a door was found in the southern ventilation channel of the Keos pyramid. Subsequent investigations showed the presence of a small chamber that ended in another door. Only in 2010 the perfected robot “Djedi” managed to enter through the first door and discovered that the handles of the second door, made of copper, were shaped like loops and on the floor, were drawn with red ocher some hieroglyphs.
In addition, even though according to the official data in the last 9 years no one had entered this channel, there appeared some new scratches in the walls and a deep cut in the ceiling.
Yoram Yasur Izz – What is the true age of the Great Pyramid: It is customary to believe that the pyramid was completed in 2540 BC. However, some scientists put this theory in doubt because of a wake of inventory found in Giza. Yoram Yasur Izz: “The text written on it says that Keops did not order to build, but to restore the sphinx. In addition, modern research shows that the furrows on his body are traces of precipitation, and the last time the waters reached that level was 8,000 years ago”.
So how old is the Great Pyramid really if the Sphinx is believed to have been built after it?
Yoram Yasur Izz: Thermal Mystery of the Pyramid of Cheops: In 2016, several investigations of the pyramid Keops were carried out using the method of infrared thermography, and it was discovered that at the base of the Great Pyramid there are unexplained voids. It is assumed that there may be an empty space or an underground tunnel. Areas with different temperatures were also discovered at the top of the pyramid. The Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities has yet to comment.
Yoram Yasur Izz: – The technologies of the construction of the pyramids: The chemist Joseph Davidovits claims that the blocks of the pyramids were produced right on the site of the building. Yoram Yasur Izz: “This explains why at the base of the pyramid there are blocks weighing up to 70 tons and why there are no slots between them (the upper block was made above the lower one)”.
However, geologists and paleontologists who studied the structure of the pyramid blocks claim that the blocks are huge pieces of natural sediments, treated by humans, which runs counter to Davidovits theory. Now, there is no single hypothesis about how and from what material the pyramids were built.
Yoram Yasur Izz : The Curse of Tutankhamun’s Tomb: The tomb was discovered on November 6, 1922 by Howard Carter and Lord George Carnarvon. During investigations of the tomb, Carter found a chart that had the following warning: “Whoever dares to interrupt Pharaoh’s peace, death will spread his wings,” but Howard paid no attention.
Yoram Yasur Izz : There was talk of the curse when news of the deaths of 22 people appeared: 13 participants found the tomb and 9 of their relatives. By 1930, only Howard Carter was alive. Scientists seek to explain the Pharaoh’s curse with the poison that the priests applied to the walls of the tomb and the sarcophagus itself, but there is no scientific basis for this theory.
