Hidden World Under Antarctica Revealed: Scientists Find A World They’ve Never Imagined

Despite the fact that satellites orbiting earth have helped map our planet’s surface in great detail, there was a gap around an area of the South Pole, which is not covered by satellites due to the inclination of their orbits.

Now, scientists have finally revealed what is there, and it comes as a surprise.

Scientists exploring Antarctica have found massive mountain ranges and vast canyons that run for hundreds of miles beneath the continents thick ice.

Hidden beneath south Antarctica, researchers used ice-penetrating radar to discover massive canyons cutting through three expansive subterranean mountain ranges under the Antarctic ice shelf.

The findings are the first to emerge from extensive ice-penetrating radar data collected in Antarctica as part of the European Space Agency PolarGAP project and have been published in the journal, Geophysical Research Letters.

Although there is extensive satellite data that helps obtain images of the surface of the Earth and its deep interior, there was a gap around the area of the South Pole, which is not covered by satellites due to the inclination of the orbits.

Therefore, the PolarGAP project was designed to fill the gap in the coverage of satellite data from the South Pole and, in particular, to acquire the missing data reports the British Antarctic Survey, which participated in the research.

Scientists warn as global warming advances, these massive valleys could play an important role in the flow of the ice.

“As there were gaps in satellite data around the South Pole, no one knew exactly what was there,” said Dr. Kate Winter, lead author of the study and a Vice-Chancellor’s Research Fellow in Northumbria University’s Department of Geography and Environmental Sciences.

“We now understand that the mountainous region is preventing ice from East Antarctica flowing through West Antarctica to the coast. In addition, we have also discovered three subglacial valleys in West Antarctica which could be important in the future.

“If the ice sheet thins or retreats, these topographically-controlled corridors could facilitate an enhanced flow of ice further inland and could lead to the West Antarctic ice divide moving. This would, in turn, increase the speed and rate at which ice flows out from the center of Antarctica to its edges, leading to an increase in global sea levels.”

Dr. Winter adds: “The data we have gathered will enable ice sheet modelers to predict what will happen if the ice sheet thins, which will mean we can start to answer the questions we couldn’t answer before.”

The mission marked the first time scientists were able to map three vast subglacial valleys in West Antarctica. The largest valley, known as Foundation Trough, is more than 350 kilometers long and 35 kilometers wide. Its length is equivalent to the distance from London to Manchester, while its width equals more than one and a half times the length of the island of Manhattan in New York.

Two of the remaining valleys are equally vast. The Patuxent canal is more than 300 kilometers long and more than 15 wide, while the Offset Rift Basin is 150 long and 30 wide.

Scientists warn that if climate change causes the ice sheet to be reduced, these valleys could increase the speed at which ice flows from the center of Antarctica to the sea, raising global sea levels.

Archaeologists amazed to find a 2100 years old phone like object

A group of archaeologists has found a strange black rectangular object next to the skeleton of a woman in a grave at the excavation site of Ala-Tey, in the mountainous Republic of Tuvá (Russia). The 2100 years old phone like device amazed the Archaeologists.

2100 years old phone

The researchers nicknamed “Natasha” to the ancestral woman, while the mysterious object that accompanied her was called “iPhone” because of her resemblance to Apple’s product. The 2100 years old phone like device has holes in the top and bottom just like the modern device.

However, and far from being an oopart, the object is actually a belt buckle more than 2,100 years old, unearthed in a tomb in the so-called «Russian Atlantis», the name given to a mountainous region in Siberia, already It is covered with water and only appears for a few weeks a year.

Pavel Leus, one of the archaeologists who participate in the excavations, explained that the team has been carrying out expeditions to the Ala-Tey burial site for several years. Leus added that the finding of that interesting 2100 years old phone like device was made in 2016, but the results have been made public only now.

“The burial of” Natasha “with an” iPhone “of the Xiongnu era remains one of the most interesting in this burial site,” said the expert.

The buckle, 18 by 9 centimeters, is made of precious stones inlaid with turquoise, carnelian, and mother of pearl, and is decorated with Chinese Wu Zhu coins. These coins have helped scientists date the object 2,137 years ago when they were minted.

Just Myths? | Enoch, Great Pyramid of Egypt, and the Anunnaki Civilization Saga?

Since the dawn of man, the time has been his ruthless enemy. There was nothing man could do to escape his earthly demise.

But the pyramids towering over man and his creations fear no time.

Much has been said about the origins of these mysterious structures, so much that the truth has been concealed within piles of false assumptions.

But an archaic figure has cracked the riddle of both time and pyramid.

His name is Enoch – the man who cheated death to go rule over the otherworldly kingdom of a higher force.

Before departing for these higher beings, Enoch had left a luxuriant cultural heritage for the generations to come.

He wished for them to solve the riddle of time, just like him, so he concealed the answers within his teachings, and within the greatest architectural mystery of present-day – The Great Pyramid of Egypt.

Sumerian and Mayan accounts remind of Enoch as the one who conquered time and who encoded this secret within the time-defying pyramids – his masterpiece.

It is now up to YOU to decipher this timeworn knowledge and garner its unimaginable benefits.

Anunnaki is believed to be a group of deities in several ancient Mesopotamian cultures such as the Babylonian, Sumerian, Assyrian, and Akkadian.

The name Anunnaki is a derivative of the names heaven “Anu”, and earth “Ki”. However, some groups translate them as “princely offspring” or “Those of Royal Blood”.

The Sumerian legends and the ancient texts use the word Annunaki to refer to a group of gods who came from heaven.

They were considered as the main gods of the Sumerian pantheon. The Sumerians worshipped these gods long before the great pantheon of ancient Greece and before the ancient Egyptian gods.

The Anunnaki descended from An, the supreme being that reigned over all the Sumerian gods.

The Babylonian myths of creation say there were 300 Anunnaki who kept the heavens and 300 others who guarded the underworld.

These deities were so important that they were also mentioned in the Epic of Gilgamesh.

The development of Sumerian civilization occurred in the Persian Gulf while growing to strength over time.

The “Plain of the Land of Shinar” is the territory that was renamed to Babylon after 2000 B.C.

These people lived in the Middle East on the territory we know as Iran and Iraq today.
