TSU’s Geant4 helped to find a new room in the pyramid of Cheops
In 2017, the international team of scientists Scan Pyramids found previously unknown areas in the Pyramid of Cheops by muon tomography of Egyptian pyramids. One of the developers of the Geant4 program that was used for this is Evgeny Chernyaev, a researcher at the Laboratory of Experimental High Energy Physics of TSU.
A hidden room is located above the large gallery leading to the Chamber of the Pharaoh. It is not less than 30 meters long and about 15 meters high. The purpose of the room is not yet clear. This is the first major discovery since the 19th century in the Pyramid of Cheops, the only one of the Seven Wonders of the World to survive to this day, and it was accomplished without excavation.
