Egyptian, Canadian, Japanese, and French researchers are using highly sensitive muon panels to sense those elementary particles to find undiscovered caverns inside the giant pyramids.

The ScanPyramids project announced last week it had discovered a cavern on the northern side of the Khufu Pyramid, which is possibly another entryway into the pyramid that had been later covered. They also found some chevrons, which are blocks in a V shape, which caused some pause.
