10 Strange Things Found Frozen In Ice AntarcticaJul 18, 2023
frozenin the ice of Antarctica Antarctica is one of the most mysterious places on Earth. It is the coldest place ever discovered with an average temperature of -58 degrees Fahrenheit and an occasional drop as low as -128.5 degrees Fahrenheit in Additionally, this continent remains the least explored beneath the Antarctic ice sheet, there are more than 400 lakes that do not freeze thanks to the heat of the Earth's core. Antarctica has no time zones or countries and only two ATMs and if you think this continent is. It's not unique enough, let me tell you about ten mysterious and
strangefinds that have been discovered in the ice of Antarctica, but before you go out to explore this white land, hit the subscribe button and ring the notification bell.
This way, you will be the first to know the updates that appear on the bright side of life several times a day. Antarctica was first cited in 1820 by a Russian expedition since then this land has been occupying the minds of countless researchers and Scientists, how can living beings survive in this eternal world? Cold, what secrets are hidden in the ice that covers the continent? There are numerous legends and myths surrounding Antarctica. Some believe that there are extraterrestrial ships trapped and
frozenin the ice of this arid land. Others are sure that the continent hides the secret base of the Third Reich. somewhere In its depths there is one more legend that says that a hidden city lies safe from human eyes under a huge frozen mass.
This view is even supported by some scientists and they claim that Antarctica is home to the lost city of Atlantis according to legend. Atlantis is a mysterious city that was occupied by demigods. This city was first mentioned by Plato, the Greek philosopher, in 360 BC. C. Researchers are still struggling to reveal the truths about this mysterious continent and some of the discoveries that have come into their hands do not. facilitate this process on the contrary they seemed to confuse scientists even more 10 elongated skulls this was a truly shocking discovery three elongated skulls were
foundin Antarctica in 2014 these skulls were the first human remains discovered in Antarctica the most surprising thing about this discovery was that Their unusual shape made them almost identical to elongated skulls found in Egypt, Peru and other places.
The skulls acquired that shape due to strange practices that were popular among some ancient civilizations. They used different methods to lengthen the skulls from an early age. This surprising discovery means that there could have been some kind of contact between African, South American and Antarctic civilizations 9 an ancient meteorite The vast plains of Antarctic ice make the meteorites stand out in stark contrast. This is probably why 90% of all media rights found on Earth are discovered in Antarctica. Another reason is that the ice preserves these space debris and protects them from corrosion. During the last 50 years, more than 10,000 meteorites have been found in Antarctica, some of them are more than 700,000 years old.
A meteorite the size of a potato that collided with the Earth in 2002 and was discovered in 2015 arrived from Mars itself bafflingly scientists discovered that this piece of extraterrestrial rock contained fossilized remains of Martian microbes as long as none of them contained the stain I think we're fine eight ancient fossils turns out dinosaurs used to live in Antarctica since the 1980s scientists have discovered almost a ton of fossils there, most of these remains are more than 71 million years old. These fossils belong to prehistoric birds and sea creatures, including monkey sores and pleaseö sores. This means that dinosaurs lived on the continent between 70 and 200 million years ago, according to scientists, this is very possible since the temperatures in those days were much higher than today, in addition to the fact that during that period Antarctica was located elsewhere in the southwestern part of the Pacific Ocean, as we know it today, seven petrified remains of an unusual animal.
Archaeologists made another surprising discovery in 2009. The Antarctic ice had been hiding the fossilized remains of a unique creature. It was the size of a modern cat, but unlike our popular pets, the animal laid eggs. It was a distant relative of modern mammals. The creature lived more than 250 million years ago. Scientists believe that this animal migrated from Antarctica to southern Africa during the period of global warming. Such a journey was possible at the time, since Antarctica was then part of the supercontinent called Pangea, a cascade of six bloods and an unconscious spectator. We could easily believe that Taylor Glacier is dripping blood.
A terrifying blood-red liquid flows over the ice and falls into the sea. Luckily, the origin of this water is not dramatic at all. This unusual waterfall contains so much iron oxide that it turns water into water. it looks like blood what is the source of this phenomenon a couple of miles away there is a lake covered in ice the salinity of the water in this lake is four times that of the sea that is why both the lake and the blood water falls only freeze at a temperature of 14 degrees Fahrenheit, five valleys lead, while Antarctica is a snow-covered continent, you probably wouldn't associate it with a lack of water, yet this land is home to one of the driest places in the world. our planet, the Dry Valleys, this arid land.
It was discovered in 1903 the valleys have incredibly low humidity and there is almost no ice or snow covering this region this place has not seen rain in over two million years and the super strong winds are to blame for these dry conditions the speed of the Winds frequently reach 200 miles per hour when they descend over the valleys the winds heat up and evaporate snow, ice and water Incidentally among all the environments on Earth these conditions are believed to be the most similar to those on Mars is That's why NASA tested the Mars Viking program exploring the Dry Valleys for 100-year-old whiskey Two cases of fine Scotch whiskey were hidden in the ice of Antarctica for more than 100 years after archaeologists discovered this treasure unexpectedly they did not immediately remove it from its ice trap because they were afraid of damaging their find, that is why they waited several years until all the necessary tools were delivered to the site, only then they managed to extract the boxes carefully, then they thawed the whiskey from negative four degrees Fahrenheit to 32 degrees Fahrenheit, the process took almost two weeks. it turned out that 10 bottles survived there during a century of confinement 3 a terrifying creature at a depth of 1,100 feet American archaeologists made a truly terrifying discovery: they came across an unknown creature that did not look like any other living being known to people This creature was approximately 8 feet long, its body was covered in protruding bones, and its jaw was retractable.
Such body structure baffled scientists today who are trying to determine the origin of the animal, its nutrition system and its classification in an underground lake. Scientists know of approximately 400 lakes in Antarctica. It may seem like a miracle that water does not freeze under a large volume of ice, but there is an explanation for this phenomenon due to the incredible pressure of water that remains liquid even when its temperature is below the standard freezing point. Additionally, the Earth's core heats the water beneath glaciers. Some of the lakes are active, meaning that despite all the harsh conditions, there is life inhabiting them.
For example, when American researchers drilled 2,300 feet of the Ross Glacier in 2013, they discovered an underground lake that the scientists achieved. When extracting water samples from this lake, it turned out that cold-resistant bacteria that until then were unknown to science lived under a huge layer of ice where there was no light. A frozen ship in 1914 began the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Its objective was to cross the frozen continent from one side to the other. Two ships participated in the trip. The leader of the expedition was the polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. One of the ships was to sail in resistance to the Weddell Sea.
The second ship was to sail. towards the Ross Sea, tragically, he became trapped in the ice and was crushed. Part of the group led by Sir Shackleton crossed the Webb LC in a lifeboat and then had to walk across the ice desert to a whaling station where they could get help. In this task thanks to the disciplined organization and the talented command of its leader, the rescue mission returned to pick up the crew members who had been left behind on Elephant Island and, although it took about 17 months, the 28 people They survived and returned to their homeland.
The resistance, although it remains frozen forever in the ice of the white continent, was what baffled you the most. Would you like to visit Antarctica to see this land with your own eyes?
