That's where muon imaging should be able to help. Just last year, however, scientists used muon imaging to detect a mysterious void in the Great Pyramid of Giza, which could be evidence of a hidden chamber. There are many variations of muon imaging, but they all typically involve gas-filled chambers. And if Brunelleschi used iron bars to fortify his dome, they would show up as darker patches. She originally built her muon detectors to prevent the pesky particles from interfering with her attempts to study ghostly neutrinos.
