Discovery of a huge cavity the size of a plane in the pyramid of Khufu
Scientists announced on Thursday the discovery of a huge "plane-sized" cavity in the pyramid of Khufu.

"The cavity is so large that it is the size of a 200-seat airplane in the heart of the pyramid," explained Mahadi al-Tayubi, a director of the Pyramids project, who is behind the discovery.

Since the end of 2015, this task of Egyptian, French, Canadian and Japanese scientists has been scouring the pyramid using sophisticated technology that does not need drilling to discover unknown interior spaces or structures and shed additional light on the still mysterious construction methods.

The Pyramid of Khufu, known as the 146-meter-long pyramid, is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, more than 4,500 years ago on the Giza Plateau near Cairo, alongside the Sphinx.

Khufu is the second Pharaohs of the fourth family "the twenty-sixth century BC," and the pyramid contains three rooms known, built on the rest of the pyramids of Egypt as a tomb of the pharaoh.

According to the study published Thursday in the journal Nature, the cavity, described by the researchers as "the big void", is 30 meters long and is similar to the large room in the pyramid, which is forty to fifty meters from the queen's room in the heart of the pyramid.
