Over the last 3 months, research scientists from Egypt, France, Canada, and Japan perform scanning four pyramid by using the camera penjejas heat (thermal) for the structure or the hole is unknown.
News.com.au quoted on Monday (1/18/2016), an effort called Operation Scan Pyramids began on October 25 to look for secret chambers in Khufu-known as the Great Pyramid-and Khafre in Giza, and later the pyramid Bent and Red at Dahshur. Everything is located in the south of the city of Cairo.
The project is expected to last until the end of 2016, and apply the mixture infrared thermography imaging, muon radiography and 3D reconstruction. According to the researchers, all the means used are non-invasive and non-destructive. Wikipedia explained that the muon is one of the elementary particles similar to electrons.

"There is a clear separation at temperatures on the west side of the Red pyramid. The bottom is colder than the top, "said Matthieu Klein from Laval University in Canada through a press release.

Impressions related video data recorded by the thermal camera showed a red hue on the blocks that are detected to have hot and blue and purple hue on the blocks cooler.
According to Klein, the two deviations (anomalies) that is located on the north side of Khufu. Experts previously found several 'places of interest' similar on the east side of the building.

Antiquities Minister Mamduh al-Damati said, "The main result tells us that there are a number of newspapers. Good news. There are a number of puzzles that must be solved in a pyramid, but it is too early to tell. "
Khufu pyramid has a height of about 146 meters and gets its name from the daughter of Pharaoh Snefru. Khufu was built 4,500 years ago and is regarded as one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.

Red pyramid which has a height of 105 meters was also built by Snefru. The building is located in the north Bent pyramid at Dahshur necropolis.source
