Two weeks into the project, the " Scan Pyramids " mission has found "anomalies" in the Pyramids of Giza that may solve decadeslong debates and centuries worth of mysteries.
The international mission, which is a massive collaboration between the country's Antiquities Ministry and a team of Egyptian, French and Japanese scientists, unraveled not one, but three massive heat spots at the foot on the Pyramid of Khufu.
Using the latest infrared thermography, scientists uncovered heat spots, which could be explained by something as simple as rock cavities or something as magnificent as secret passages and tombs.
Theories about the anomalies and the secrets they may unfold are over the top. However, some scientists are attributing the latest finds to basic chemistry.
According to Science Alert, some believe that these anomalies could be explained with the use of basic chemistry due to the materials used to build the pyramids.
"The teams have concluded the existence of several thermal anomalies that were observed on all monuments during the heating-up or the cooling-down phases," stated the Ministry of Antiquities.
Nevertheless, some remain hopeful and intrigued as to what the findings mean. "The first row of the pyramid's stones are all uniform, then we come here and find that there's a difference in the formation," said Mamdouh El Damaty.
Who knows? Maybe British archaeologist Nicholas Reeves was right about the burial place of Queen Nefertiti.
