The only one of the seven ancient wonders of the world still standing, the Great Pyramid of Giza has fascinated people for centuries. In November 2017, the Scan Pyramids research team announced that they had made an historic discovery: using cutting-edge, non-invasive technology, they had discovered several new cavities within the Great Pyramid—the biggest discovery about these pyramids in centuries. This film shows how these modern-day explorers—particle physicists, experts in 3D digital technologies and engineers in thermal imaging—made this massive discovery. Witness the first scientific mission in 30 years authorized by the Egyptian government to examine the pyramid of Khufu, involving adventures, trials, and successes in this unique journey through time and space.
