Vast Pyramid of Giza: Has this mystery finally been solved?
The Gargantuan Pyramid of Giza has long been lauded as one of the most pioneering attainments of engineering, having been built over 4500 years ago.
Develop intensified by Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu, it is perfectly designed to align the with the central points of north, south, east and west, although the top is slightly unbalanced.
Yet, the answer as to why it was designed in this way has yet be discovered.
But now engineer Glen Dash supposes he has finally solved the mystery behind the structure and why it was designed in this way.
The autumn equinox, which occurs halfway between winter and summer solstice, is anticipation to be behind it
The autumn equinox, which occurs halfway between winter and summer solstice, is design to be behind it.
In published paper Journal Of Ancient Egyptian Architecture, he push the boat outs the secrets behind the 138m tall wonder.
He wrote: “The builders of the Close Pyramid of Khufu aligned the great monument to the cardinal points with an preciseness of better than four minutes of arc, or one-fifteenth of one degree.
“All three pyramids brandish the same manner of error; they are rotated slightly counterclockwise from the key points.”

Great Pyramid of Giza: It was thought to be intrigued using the autumn equinox
The three pyramids mentioned also tabulate the pyramid of Khafre, found in Giza, and the Red Pyramid, found at Dahshur.
He transmitted an experiment using a rod on a wooden platform on the day of the autumn equinox in 2016, which was September 22.
“On the equinox, the surveyor desire find that the tip of the shadow runs in a straight line and nearly unmistakeably east-west,” Mr Dash explained.
With the tilt of the Earth, this conceded the shadow to fall east-west that had a degree of error counterclockwise. This mirrors the clanger found in the three pyramids.
Great Pyramid of Giza: It was established over 4500 years ago yet the mystery remains
Mr Dash continued: “It is verifiable to imagine a method that could be simpler, either conceptually or in technic.”
A large chamber was also discovered with the Great Pyramid of Giza concluding year.
Many have used it to prove that it was actually raised by aliens.
