Conspiracy theorists are obsessed with the idea the pyramids were either made by aliens or have secret alien stuff inside them – and a new study looks set to blow their minds.
Researchers from ITMO University and the Laser Zentrum Hannover investigated the effect of electromagnetic waves on the Great Pyramid – and found it ‘concentrates’ the energy.
This isn’t, of course, proof that the pyramid is some sort of spacecraft, or was built by little green men.
Instead, it could help researchers develop sensors and solar cells based on the pyramid’s shape, using nanoparticles.
The researchers wrote, ‘ Calculations showed that in the resonant state the pyramid can concentrate electromagnetic energy in the pyramid’s internal chambers as well as under its base, where the third unfinished chamber is located.’
The researchers first estimated that resonances in the pyramid can be induced by radio waves with a length ranging from 200 to 600 meters.
Dr Andrey Evlyukhin, scientific supervisor and coordinator of the research said, ‘Egyptian pyramids have always attracted great attention. We as scientists were interested in them as well, so we decided to look at the Great Pyramid as a particle dissipating radio waves resonantly.
‘Due to the lack of information about the physical properties of the pyramid, we had to use some assumptions.
‘For example, we assumed that there are no unknown cavities inside, and the building material with the properties of an ordinary limestone is evenly distributed in and out of the pyramid.
‘With these assumptions made, we obtained interesting results that can find important practical applications.’
