Russian scientists made the very first scan of an ancient underground structure in Dagestan
«The unexplored underground premises in the territory of the Naryn-kala fortress in Derbent was chosen as the first object for such a study in our country, because archaeologists still argue about what it might be. The structure is very similar to a Christian temple, so we are possibly talking about dates like 300's of our era. We hope to see the structure of the premises and, possibly, some of the surrounding constructions, using our method,» Polukhina said.
The muon radiography method allows to scan large natural and industrial objects in approximately the same way as X-rays do, Polukhina explained.
