Tutankhamun is regarded as one of Egypt’s most enigmatic pharaohs. Scientists recently revealed that one of the daggers unearthed in the Egyptian King Tutankhamun’s tomb is made of a metal from another part of the universe.
According to the latest investigation, King Tutankhamun’s dagger is made of rare metal, most likely derived from a meteorite. This dagger is constructed of a rare metal that cannot be found anyplace on Earth.
This dagger was recovered only three years after Tutankhamun’s tomb was discovered, in 1925. Renowned archaeologist Howard Carter had an epiphany and discovered two daggers buried in Tutankhamun’s wrappings.
Most researchers agree that this metal, known as “iron from the sky” by the Egyptians, is most likely derived from a meteorite that fell to Earth and was collected by the Egyptians.
Interestingly, this dagger was recently studied in greater depth utilizing a new technology known as X-ray fluorescence spectrometry. The analysis yielded an unexpected outcome.
The dagger blade is comprised of an iron, nickel, and cobalt alloy. Furthermore, the alloy reveals that this dagger has an extraterrestrial origin. It should be mentioned, however, that a meteorite containing a similar combination of metals was discovered near Marsa Matruh, a seaside city 150 miles west of Alexandria.
However, many secrets and riddles of Egyptian artifacts and pyramids remain unsolved.
