Dieter Arnold also is cited in that article as noticing "construction gaps" which apparently already suggested to Egyptologists, by "implication, the whole passage system". Ahh, the weaving into the self-consistent narrative has already begun.
Hawass was pretty clear in fairly stating the a "void" could simply be a region with larger spaces between rocks and not an entire open volume. If that's so, it enforces the notion that the measurements drawn from muon detection technology is difficult to calibrate quantitatively
Hawass attributes the warm stone on the east side to be modern cement from 1939 that simply has heat properties that are different than the surrounding limestone rock. Has that fun factoid been published previously? If not, why not? No reason was stated regarding why it was necessary to put a modern cement block in that particular location when the entire pyramid is full of open pocks from all the casing pillaging.
- “We wrote in our report which we presented to El-Enany that the ScanPyramids project should continue their work but they have to use the scientific approach, and we are happy that this paper is published. We, on the other hand, are going to publish a paper on our opinion on this work, as a scientific committee,"
The Egyptian authorities were wrong to criticize the team for publishing its technical findings. The research team simply presented its scientific findings, then suggested some possible implications and suggestions for further study. If Hawass wants to rebut with Egyptology's own perspective, bring it on.
Welcome to the world of scientific research, Dr. Hawass.
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
