The Pyramids at Giza, Egypt, hailed as one of the Seven Wonders of Ancient World, has been a source of speculation and mystery for centuries.

On November 24, 1971, a man known only as “D. B. Cooper” hijacked an airplane between Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington.

The investigation of the tomb of legendary Egyptian King Tutankhamun has reached a new twist, following the discovery of a secret chamber deep inside the tomb.

Following a 24-hour infrared-thermography experiment to detect the temperature of the walls in the tomb, a team from Cairo University’s Faculty of Engineering has noted the presence of an area different in its temperature than the other parts of the northern wall, according to the Egyptian Minister of Antiquities.
