Fermilab scientists are part of a team of global collaborators working on groundbreaking research to unlock the mysteries of the Kukulcán pyramid in Chichén Itzá using advanced X-ray analysis and cosmic ray detection. The research aims to gain insights into the construction techniques and purposes of the pyramid’s inner chambers which could not only confirm the existence of a hidden chamber but also shed light on the architectural and cultural achievements of the Maya civilization.

From NBC News, May 4, 2022: A new research initiative that includes Fermilab scientist Alan Bross plans to scan Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza using energetic particles from space. The new device is a high-powered telescope to map the Great Pyramid’s internal makeup from all angles and could help scientists “see” inside the ancient structure to glean new details about its mysterious inner chambers.
