Japan scans the world’s biggest pile of rocks

Like an SF B-movie…The Japanese are putting portable muon detectors below the base of the pyramids to measure “muon flux” to map unknown tunnels and chambers.

Muons Detectors plates installed at Bent Pyramid and under sensitivity calibration in Khufu’s Pyramid

Dr Kunihiro Morishima and his team from Nagoya University have just completed the installation of the Muons detector plates in the lower chamber of Bent Pyramid in Dahshour. They are composed of 40 “regular” plates representing a surface of 3m2 containing 2 emulsion films that are sensitive to Muons. Those emulsion films will allow the detection of various types of muons naturally penetrating the pyramidMuon-test-Khufu-Pyramid
Muon detectors, placed at appropriate places (e.g. inside the pyramid, under a possible yet undetected chamber) allow, by accumulation of muons over time, to discern the void areas (that muons crossed without problem) from denser areas where some of them were absorbed or deflected Muons radiography is now frequently used for the observation of volcanoes, including research teams from the University of Nagoya…more…(PDF)
