World Egyptian authorities have launched an investigation after a video emerged showing two tourists scaling the world-famous Great Pyramid and posing for nude and sexual photographs at the summit.Danish photographer Andreas Hvid posted a video showing himself and a woman on top of the Great Pyramid of Giza near Cairo as night descends over the city. The woman—whose face is pixelated—can be seen removing her top and exposing her bra. Other images show the two posing as if they were having sex, The Guardian reported.Read More: Ancient Egypt: How I Discovered the Ramp That Might Have Been Used to Build Giza’s Great PyramidThe video and images have sparked outrage in Egypt, Denmark and further afield, with many feeling the stunt was culturally and religiously insensitive.

Tech & Science Constructed around 4,500 years ago, the Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the only one that remains largely intact. For centuries, there has been considerable debate about how exactly the ancient Egyptians built the structure with researchers proposing several different theories. Now, a team from the French Institute for Oriental Archaeology in Cairo and the University of Liverpool, England, have uncovered evidence which casts new light on the mysterious construction process. The archaeologists may have worked out how the Egyptians transported huge stone blocks from an alabaster quarry, called Hatnub, in the Eastern Desert, to the Great Pyramid—which was built as a tomb for the Pharaoh Khufu (2609 BC-2584 BC). Alabaster was an important resource for the Egyptians who used it to manufacture statues, coffins, tiles, vases and other objects, as well as incorporating it into their structures. According … [Read more...] about How Were The Pyramids Built? Scientists Discover How Ancient Egyptians Moved Huge Stones

Tech & Science Great Pyramid Ancient Egypt Physics The Great Pyramid of Giza is steeped in history and mythology, and as such fascinates researchers from various fields who all want to unravel its many secrets. Now, an international team of physicists has found that, under the right conditions, the Great Pyramid can concentrate electromagnetic energy in its internal chambers and under its base. The results, which are published in the Journal of Applied Physics, could help scientists to create new nanoparticles—particles between 1 and 100 nanometers in size—that could be used, for example, to develop highly efficient solar cells or tiny sensors. The team from ITMO University in Saint Petersburg, Russia, and the Laser Zentrum in Hannover, Germany, applied theoretical physics methods to investigate how the Great Pyramid responded to electromagnetic radiation—which includes radio waves, microwaves and infrared, visible light, ultraviolet light, X-rays and … [Read more...] about Ancient Egypt: Incredible Electromagnetic Discovery in Great Pyramid of Giza’s Hidden Chambers
