In the 1960s, Luis Alvarez and his team used muons to search for voids in the Egyptian pyramids.

See Search for Hidden Chambers in the Pyramids by L. Alvarez et al.

He was adamant that there were no chambers - also when asked privately.

Why did other people find a chamber now, in 2017, with the same method? Did the authors comment on the older paper?
