Hidden corridor discovered inside Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza
The 4500-year-old Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt, has, once again, left us gobsmacked. And this time, it is in the form of a nine-metre long hidden corridor near the main entrance of the pyramid. This discovery may shed more light on so many things we don’t know about.
If reports are to go by, the researchers have been studying the pyramids using non-invasive technologies like the infrared thermography, 3D simulations and cosmic ray imaging. All these to understand the one question that’s been on everyone’s mind – why were the pyramids built?One can’t help but wonder (wonder hard), how did they transfer, lift and place the stone blocks that were over two tons? And over 2.3 million stone blocks. This leads to the obvious conclusion – the monumental weight of the Great Pyramid of Giza. The possibility of the Pharaoh’s another burial chamber is also not completely thrown out the window. The enigmatic world of the pyramids of Giza is here to stay and we look forward to more such exciting discoveries.
All boarding and entry gates at Delhi Airport to become DigiYatra enabled
DigiYatra will be enabled at all entry and boarding gates of Terminal 2 and 3 of the Airport by the end of March 2023.
DigiYatra is a digital platform that uses facial recognition technology for air travellers in India to ensure that the process of air travel becomes more convenient and efficient for passengers. It also ensures hassle-free travel, faster mobility of passengers to boarding gates, enhanced security, and dedicated gates, and all the while being completely contactless. If reports are to go by, it will help travellers save around 15-25 minutes of their time in the entire process from entry checks to security checks, as it will cut down a few seconds at every touch point. Currently, around 2,500 passengers are using DigiYatra everyday at the airport.
Air connectivity between India and Israel set to improve with new corridor
As per the latest reports, direct connectivity between India and Israel will likely resume soon as Saudi Arabia and Oman have allowed Israeli civilian overflights over their regions. The said development brings a great relief and positive news for Israel’s airline industry. Because of this new air corridor, flights from Israel to the far East will now be much shorter, which will further allow airlines to offer more direct and efficient routes.
Reports have it that for some destinations, such as India, Australia, and Sri Lanka, the flight time will be cut down to two-and-a-half-hour, which will likely increase tourism and business travel to and from Israel.
