Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza has shown scientists once again that many secrets remain within its walls.

Researchers using a scanning technology involving cosmic rays say they have found a hidden chamber nearly 100-feet long within The Great Pyramid. The major find, which was announced Thursday in the journal Nature, is the first since the 19th century.

“It could be composed of one or several structures. … Maybe it could be another Grand Gallery. It could be a chamber, it could be a lot of things,” said Mehdi Tayoubi, a co-founder of the ScanPyramids project and president of the Heritage Innovation Preservation Institute, Fox News reported.

The process for finding the new chamber, which is analogous to X-ray technology, was also used by scientists at the Fukushima nuclear reactor in Japan after a tsunami in 2011.

Construction of the Great Pyramid took place during pharaoh Khufu’s reign from 2509–2483 B.C.
