You may have wondered what the inside of a pyramid looks like. Not the cavities and passages you see on "The Mummy" — the actual structure of the creation, how it was built to last all these years. The pyramids of ancient Egypt are about 4,500 years old. They have stood the test of time, great monuments on the landscape. Dusty gold and majestic. Now we can learn a little more about them thanks to cosmic rays. Archaeologists have begun to use new technology to better refine our understanding of pyramids' internal makeup. The new Scans Pyramids project uses cosmic rays to build "inside" maps of the Egyptian attractions. The images show the internal crooked chamber of a 4,600-year-old pyramid known as the Bent Pyramid. It's a 345-foot monument 25 miles south of Cairo. In ancient times, the pointed building was known as the Southern Shining Pyramid. It is believed to be one of Egypt's earliest designs. It looks odd, probably built in a time of transition, when engineering moved from stepped pyramids to smooth.

10-year-old gets $10,000 for finding Instagram flaw

A 10-year-old schoolboy from Finland has become the youngest recipient of a £7,000 ($10,000) award under Facebook's bug bounty program, after he found a vulnerability that allowed anyone to delete comments on Instagram simply by planting malicious code into the photo-sharing app. Jani—who at the tender age of 10 is considered too young to use Facebook by the company's own rules—outshines an unnamed 13-year-old cyber enthusiast, who once held the title of the youngest person to receive a bug bounty reward from the free content ad network. Jani made the discovery in February, and notified Facebook of the vulnerability, which was claimed to have been fixed quickly. Jani has been interested in coding and video games since the age of eight. The ethical hacker received his bounty in March, and reportedly plans to spend the money on a football and a new bicycle. His school chums and parents are said to be quite surprised by the news.
