Hidden Away

by Mia Henry

“A hidden corridor nine metres (30 feet) long has been discovered close to the main entrance
of the 4,500-year-old Great Pyramid of Giza…

The discovery… was made… using non-invasive technology including infrared thermography,
3D simulations and cosmic-ray imaging to peer inside the structure.”


Deep within the pyramid,
so experts have detected,
there lies a tunnel neatly placed,
capacious, and protected.

These scientists used cosmic rays
to find the hidden spaces.
Perhaps they’ll check my basement, too;
I need more storage places.
