Scientists Are Working on Robots to Explore ‘Voids’ in the Great Pyramid

There’s more to explore in the Great Pyramid at Giza, but scientists may need some help from robots to do it.

Researchers have used muon detectors and thermal imaging to discover two previously unknown voids in the Great Pyramid. The larger void is around 98 feet long, while the smaller one is a corridor of uncertain length. Experts are conflicted on whether the spaces were purposely designed to hold anything or not.

Because scientists can’t just take apart the pyramid, they’re working on tiny robots that can enter the smaller void and see what’s there. Glenn and Stu talked about this unique story on today’s show.

“First, we want to send a ‘scout robot,’ which is basically a pan-tilt camera with a lot of lights fitted in a tube-like robot,” researcher Jean-Baptiste Mouret told Live Science. “The goal is to survey what is on the other side of the wall and get high-resolution pictures.”

GLENN: There's a couple of cool science stories. One is -- have you heard about the big void in the pyramid? The Great Pyramid of Giza?

STU: Yes. I've heard of it.

GLENN: All right. So there's the Grand Gallery. Which is, you can walk through this grand gallery that goes up to -- I don't even know. I think it's the burial chamber or whatever the hell it is. And right above it is -- what they're calling a big void. It's this gigantic room in the middle of the pyramid that they didn't know was there. And they've only found it through new techniques of being able to scan the pyramid. And they can see this huge void, but they don't know what it is.

And it's at an angle. It appears to be at an angle, which would mean it's another great gallery, another staircase, which would lead you into yet another void, which might be something else that we don't know is in there. There's two of these rooms.

You know, to find it, you would have to take the pyramid apart. Here believes cool signs. They're taking a blimp, a little blimp, and they're rolling it up. They're taking a teeny digital camera, high definition camera and a teeny, teeny light. And then a blimp. And they're wrapping it around a pole. They're going to drill a hole up into the void. They're going to shove that blimp up, fill it with helium, and then it will take off. The light will go on. And it will survey this whole thing with high-definition camera, so we don't ever have to go into it. You'll be able to see what's in it.

STU: Plus, whatever is in there, can't escape. Because that's the more important thing.

GLENN: Right. Right.

STU: Unless, of course, it can sneak out of the little drill hole.

GLENN: A teeny little -- or it might -- maybe what's left in there is a little, teeny blimp pilot.

STU: Terrible.

GLENN: That would be awful.

STU: That's the last thing you would want in there. Would be a tiny blimp pilot.

GLENN: Just waiting. Just waiting.

STU: For some idiot culture to stick a blimp up there.

GLENN: He's been walking around for like 5,000 years going, nobody is this stupid. Like there's a blimp going to show up all of a sudden.

(laughter)

STU: The worst thing would be to torture him because he would be able to fly the blimp, but there would be no hole big enough to get it out. So it would just be a pilot.

GLENN: To get the blimp out. You'll just be bumping up against the side. I'll ram it really hard this time.

(laughter)

GLENN: All right. So --

STU: Probably wouldn't work.

GLENN: No. Uh-uh. Uh-uh. But we'll see him. We'll see him. He'll be like a little Keebler elf.

STU: We all know what will be inside there, right? Which is nothing. There will be a giant bunch of nothing in there.

GLENN: Maybe we can put Giraldo Rivera in there for some other culture to find.

(laughter)

STU: It's just a collection of Giraldo Rivera selfies with his shirt off at 70. What if we find out he's not 70, and he's like 5700?

GLENN: And he escaped from a little drill hole in the other pyramid.

There's also this: The shield that protects the earth from solar radiation is under attack from within. We can't prevent it, but we should prepare. This is the subheadline that is coming from scientists all around the world. They are saying that, you know, every -- what is it? Every 200,000 or 300,000 years, the poles shift, a polar shift.

And north becomes south, south becomes north. And it flips. When that happens, some people say, that's where the continents all broke apart at one point.

But it happens about every 300,000 years. Well, it's been 780,000 years since that's happened. So we're well overdue. Scientists are now saying, that polar shift is beginning to happen. And if it does, with the solar winds and everything else, we could be out of power worldwide for several months.

Panic, everybody! No. Don't. Just recycle. Just recycle.

President Joe Biden and world leaders are spending the week discussing the biggest issues across the globe. But Mike Pompeo, former Secretary of State during the Trump administration, believes more needs to be done.

Pompeo joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to talk about President Biden's upcoming meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, and to explain why he believes it's not just "appropriate," but necessary to hold Putin accountable for the recent cyberattacks on the Colonial Pipeline and the JBS meat processing company.

Pompeo said it's likely that "at the very least" Putin turned a blind eye to the major attacks against U.S. infrastructure. He stressed that the Biden administration should not abandon private businesses in the face of these ransomware hacks, but rather do everything possible to make sure those businesses' assets are secure from future invasions.

"This is an attack on America," Pompeo said. "It came through an attack on a commercial enterprise, but the capacity for pipelines to move product around on our east coast is an American national security interest.... We have to help these businesses protect their systems, and then there has to be a national effort to impose costs on those who put American lives at risk by denying available product around our country.

"Putin, at the very least, is turning a blind eye to [the cyberattacks], probably more. So, it's appropriate to hold Vladimir Putin and the Russians accountable for the actions taking place inside of their country," he added. "We have to do it, and there are tools by which we can."

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn read from the Bible's II Timothy 3, in which Paul warns of "perilous times" to come and describes a generation that will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, and the list goes on. Sound familiar?

But Glenn said the times we're facing — which will likely become more and more difficult — are not any graver than what our Founders faced. We can overcome, and while it won't be easy, it will be worth it.

"Just like George Washington and the badge of merit, we will not be able to conquer this evil unless we are on God's side. If we don't have Divine Providence, we will not be able to survive. The things that are arrayed in front of us, are no greater no less than what our Founders had arrayed against them," Glenn stated.

"So, what will we do? You must make those decisions, as a family, right now. What is the line for you that you and your family will not cross? Because if you don't know it now, you will cross it," he warned. "You have to speak out, be that voice. You have to be strong enough to lead."

Glenn went on to thank and praise his audience, saying, "This is the kindest, most generous audience I have ever encountered."

"You will stand. This audience could be the extra 5% that is needed to change things, for the better," he added. "We have great and glorious times, when I believe we will see the hand of God. We will see miracles. Expect them. And live in such a way where you can call them down."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."
