Shocking Things Found In IceJul 18, 2023
Here's a question: what percentage of the Earth's surface would you say is covered in ice from a satellite view? It may seem like a lot, but despite what it seems, ice covers only 10 percent of the Earth's surface; this percentage has fluctuated wildly over the years. ice ages that cover up to 30 percent of the world and the ice at any given time, but as temperatures have risen in the ice of these periods has receded, people have discovered strange
thingsthat were once frozen within them, from frozen cavemen to deadly diseases and even snow. symbols of an extraterrestrial civilization it's time to take a look at some of the most
foundin the eyes of frozen E.T back in 2013 Jason Nilsson decided to take a winter walk with a friend across a frozen lake in Utah for as long as he could See, there was just ice, ice, and more ice, until Nelson saw a strange circular mark on the top of the frozen lake.
As the two approached the strange site, his curiosity quickly turned to fear that he had stumbled upon this inexplicably. A strange circle crawling across the skin dotted with hundreds of smaller holes, if there are any trypophobia sufferers out there I suggest you look away now as if that wasn't creepy enough. Towards the center of the icy ring was a smaller circle that gave this monstrosity the illusion of something. Disturbing infected eye, what the hell is this? Does anyone else have the urge to destroy it trying to solve it? The pair took a closer look at this mark when Nielsen noticed small, soft white spots that had melted through the ice.
I know, man, that's the weird thing. I don't know about you, but I think those things could definitely pass for alien eggs. Fortunately, the real explanation behind this icy terror is believed to be due to a little girl, and no, she wasn't summoning the devil, according to her mother. the girl had placed balls of salt, although a geometric design was crawling on the skin for an art assignment, not long after, the soft, salty sculptures had melted through the eyes, leaving behind this gruesome frozen feature. I still can't look at this thing without throwing up, why? It looks so damned, at least that explanation means no little green men will get us any time soon.
Off the Wave in 2015, photographer Kelly Preheim visited the Lake Andy National Wildlife Refuge hoping to capture some images of the beautiful landscape. what he ended up catching was less scenic and more fishtopian, sorry dystopian, don't rub your eyes, yeah that's a photo of a four foot high frozen wall of fish, how the hell can dozens of fish get caught in upright position and an ice wall at first glance? The fish may look like they froze mid-jump out of the water, perhaps from a particularly icy gust of wind, but nowhere on the planet is it cold enough to instantly freeze an entire wave in a literal instant, which is why temperatures would have to be close to zero.
Kelvin or absolute zero, which is approximately negative 459 degrees Fahrenheit, which is colder than the vacuum of space. The real reason for this disconcerting image is due to the thick cloudy eyes that form on the surface of the lake, when it becomes thick enough to block the sun and plants. the water cannot receive light to perform photosynthesis and produce oxygen as a result of lack of oxygen in the water, the fish trapped in the lake unfortunately die and float to the surface, still the question remains how they ended up trapped upright. , it is possible that the climate took an even colder turn, increasing the amount of ice and, as it expanded, it was pushed toward the shore, where it eventually folded and spread vertically.
Strong winds may have forced the frozen fish to rise even higher until they eventually spread to about four feet. wall luckily this scary feature wasn't bad news for all the frozen animals essentially became a frozen banquet for the hungry eagles and seagulls, they are braver than me, I mean can you imagine the brain laughs, the Frozone was a normal day for the Anton brothers? and Alex Babich, who went ice fishing in northern Indiana in January 2017. They were hoping to take home a catch or two, which they did in a sense. I mean, they didn't really catch any fish, or any live ones, anyway.
What they captured was this amazing footage sticking out of the frozen lake they were fishing on. It was the body of a sea bass. As the brothers walked toward their fishy find, they realized the true magnitude of what they had
found. Not only did it freeze in the lake, it was also stuck in the mouth of a much larger pike, so how exactly could the two fish freeze mid-meal? The most likely explanation is that the pike tried to eat the bass but bit off a little more than it could literally chew, the bass was too big and the pike drowned, taking its food to a watery grave when both fish met their end, they floated up. the surface of the water where they finally froze, leaving it looking like a piece of Damien Hurst art, but it turns out that fish aren't the only unfortunate animals to fall victim to a frozen end, just ask this frozen fox who spent too much time in a Scandinavian lake, unfortunately this fluffy guy drowned here before freezing when conditions became more frigid, well it's not.
The first time Firefox freezes on a similar note at first glance, this Glacial Gator appears to have succumbed to the same fearsome fate as Mr. Fox, but as surprising as it may seem, this frozen alligator is actually alive and well, while these Reptiles are generally found in warm climates. American alligators can be found in places like North Carolina, where temperatures can drop to negative 34 degrees Fahrenheit. Luckily, these guys are prepared for the golden snap right before the water freezes. Alligators lift their snouts into the air before the ice allows them to. breathing while mostly submerged during this time polar predators go through a process called brumation.
This is essentially a period of inactivity for reptiles, just as hibernation is for mammals in a process that can lead to an upset stomach for five months as skaters shut down their metabolism. your heart rate and you don't eat waiting for your waters to warm up again, man those guys really know how to relax, you know how you can relax, just sit back, relax and get stuck into all my videos, oh and while you're there. don't be afraid to hit the like and subscribe buttons, all done well now, where were we? ERG Ed's foreign animals aren't the only ones to find themselves in a death-by-ice situation in 2021, visitors to Theodore Worth Regional Park in Minneapolis and the Americans were greeted by a puzzling polar feature emerging from the trees: a block of ice six feet tall and entombed within it was what appeared to be a human, but this was no ordinary human: the figure frozen in the giant eye frame was a shaggy-haired caveman carrying a weapon. shaped like a club in his right hand, it attracted masses of curious visitors to the park who were eager to catch a glimpse of a real-life caveman.
Now I don't know about you, but this seems like the beginning. To me, it's a horror movie, I mean, I just know I've seen a movie where a recently discovered caveman thinks and goes into Goblin mode with that clumsy club of his, luckily though there was no man of the caves, Carnage turns out that this feature of Frozen is actually. the work of artist Zach Schumach, who created the ice man known as a zugzug from plastic. Zack won for creating something that would get people away from their computers and TV screens and into the outdoors and into the snow, but I wouldn't get my hopes up to meet him. zag Zug in person today lives at home with his creators Zach imagines living with that enormous human ice in silence and without blinking, observing every move you make from now until eternity well, put that way, I think I have lived with worse housemates , foreign fossils with climate change gradually increases the temperature of the entire planet.
The Tyndall Glacier and southern Chile are slowly melting. In fact, between 1945 and 2001, the glacier, which is a giant frozen river, of ice retreated more than three miles. Now glaciers melting at this rate are not a good sign for the state of the environment, but the ice Melting Tyndall Glacier at least revealed one incredible ancient artifact. In 2009, paleontologists found strangely well-preserved fossils of an ancient Beast protruding from the once free-flowing icy bedrock. River were the remains of an ichthyosaur, a prehistoric marine reptile that inhabited the world's waters about 250 million years ago for reference, making these guys almost triple the age of the oldest T-Rex, at about 10 feet long , these beasts had a creepy plump body.
Very striking eyes and a snout of considerable size similar to that of a dolphin that has been drawn by a three-year-old paleontologist. When excavating the sign on the Tendo Glacier they were not only greeted by a strange fossil, no, they discovered 76 So what had come down to take it all? These giant guys are down. Experts believe something called a turbidity current is to blame. This is a rapid downward flow of water caused by earthquakes or the collapse of sea slopes. The ichthyosaur may have been trapped by the chaotic current and thrown into an open chasm where they were buried in sediments that collapsed and caked with this silty residue.
It would have created an anoxic environment for the ichthyosaur corpses, meaning there is no oxygen to prevent them. the bacterial decomposition of their bodies. In fact, these strange fossils were so well preserved that paleontologists even unearthed the entire female ichthyosaur with its fossilized remains. fetuses in your womb Thanks to these findings, scientists will now be able to better understand these marine reptiles and their embryonic development, as long as they don't bring these strange things back from the dead. I will be happy Baltic Beast in 2021. In Siberia, Russia, Alexi Savin was enjoying a nice walk enjoying the surrounding snowy landscape until he saw something peculiar sticking out of the frozen permafrost, which is ground that has remained completely frozen for several years, at the At first it looked like a rock, but when Simon looked closer, he realized that it was actually the carcass of a young rhinoceros.
Now I know what you're thinking. Siberia has rhinos, animals with enormous horns, famous for living exclusively in high climates. Yes, these bulky beasts are only found in the wilds of Africa. and Asia, but what seven found was not a normal rhino, this thing had fur, it turned out to be a woolly rhino, an extinct cousin of modern rhinos that roamed the planet between 5 million and 11,700 years ago, when I say colossal, I'm serious. These all-natural tanks could reach links of up to 13 feet and weigh up to 2.2 tons, although that size wasn't always so useful as researchers believed the specimen found 7 likely drowned, but this is not the first woolly rhino. discovered within the Siberian permafrost, but researchers claimed that the seven is the best preserved example of an extinct Ice Age mammal ever discovered.
Much of the rhino's soft tissue was still visible along with its hooves, fur teeth and a small nasal horn for such a well-covered specimen. led researchers to discover more about this prehistoric beast. Wear marks on the horn indicate that the creature may have used its bony protuberance to gather food by scraping snow and ice to reach less vegetation hiding beneath. Clearly, these things had horns to be wild. might be my worst dad joke in a long time oh reindeer now woolly rhinos aren't the only thing hiding in the icy depths of Siberia back in 2016, something much deadlier emerged from the region's permafrost that summer without warning 2,300 reindeer suddenly fell.
At the same time, 90 local residents were hospitalized with a strange devilish illness. What was the cause of this mysterious illness? While Siberia enjoyed a particularly warm summer in 2016, rising temperatures caused the region's permafrost to thaw, but as the permafrost melted a latent lethal disease rose to the surface. It turns out that in the early 20th century, repeated anthrax outbreaks were responsible for the deaths of more than a million reindeer in Siberia. The bodies were buried, butbecause the permafrost is so resistant that it is practically impossible to excavate. Deep graves To make matters worse, the cold temperatures provided the perfect preservation conditions for the anthrax to stay alive with the abnormally sweltering summer.
It didn't take long for the permafrost to melt to expose the anthrax-infected carcasses, presumably the grazing reindeer contracted the infection from feeding. near the corpses of their deceased ancestors and once Rudolph and company became infected, the disease quickly spread to the humans who were hurting them now, as you can probably guess. Anthrax is not something you want to get. This bacterial disease can cause everything from fever to headaches. and from dizziness to black skin ulcers, vomiting and even death, in fact, without treatment, survival rates for those who have inhaled anthrax spores are as low as 10 percent.
Fortunately, due to large-scale vaccination of reindeer, this anthrax outbreak did not escalate further. So I'll never be able to look at Rudolph the same way again. Blizzard drink protruding from the northern coast of Antarctica. You'll find Cape Roids, an inhospitable place where temperatures drop below negative 50 degrees Fahrenheit and strong winds cause blinding snow. Nowadays there are storms, the only things bold enough to live here are a colony of penguins, so back in 2010, how did conservationists find three cases of whiskey here? Did those penguins know how to have fun? Not exactly, the bottles were actually under an old abandoned cabin.
While the cabin was already known, the whiskey was a new and important discovery because of who it probably belonged to. This cabin was the base camp of the famous explorer Ernest Shackleton more than a hundred years earlier, back in 1907, Shackleton LED. an expedition in search of the South Pole using that same cabin as a base camp for their trip, the question is who put the whiskey under the cabin, the most popular theory is that the shackles 10 place the bottles there before leaving for the pole in anticipation of a victory celebration on the cruise ship's return; However, the crew never reached their destination at the South Pole, so Shackleton probably wasn't in the mood to celebrate incredibly despite being left for over 100 years in the subfrozen conditions of Antarctica, the whiskey didn't. was frozen, it was able to withstand freezing thanks to its high alcohol content of 47.3 and because alcohol contains ethanol which has an incredibly low freezing point.
Negative point 173 degrees Fahrenheit prevented these drinks from becoming alcoholic popsicles after being displayed at the Canterbury Museum in New Zealand. The whiskey bottles were returned to Shackleton's Hut in Cape Roids in 2013, where more than a hundred can still be found today. years after they were first left there, pretty clean, don't you think? The polar portal thanks to its circular shape, its steep red slopes and its living water. Carrot Lake in Iceland has, ironically, become a tourist hotspot. Why is it ironic? Because eager explorers have discovered it and spend the winter in this place. transforms into a polar paradise as the season produces average temperatures of around a frigid 32 degrees Fahrenheit.
Gareth freezes and boy is it something to see. Anyone lucky enough to catch a glimpse will think that he is now standing on the edge of a portal to a frozen underworld. Lake Karis is located on the side of a cone-shaped volcano that was once active when it erupted, the volcano depleted its magma reserve, causing the rupture to collapse in on itself, resulting in the Caldera formation that can be seen here today. The crimson crater that holds the lake, volcanic minerals from the steep slopes also leached into the water, these minerals essentially dye the lake water this vivid aquamarine color, so when winter comes what is left is a frozen lake. tremendously vibrant surrounded by darkness. red earrings and a location that could have been taken straight from Game of Thrones.
Wow, anyone who takes Kareth abroad! If you were to hike across a glacier, one of those frozen rivers mentioned above, you would probably expect to find ice. There are no more eyes yet. 1898 American explorer James Campbell encountered something else while hiking on a glacier in Wyoming, USA, what Kimball saw sticking out of the glacier was a small, wrinkled green leg and not before the can began to encroach on the section of comments, it was not an alien. The Explorer had found was a frozen grasshopper, which isn't immediately strange, but things took a strange turn the more Kimball dug and the more grasshoppers emerged;
In fact, he noted that not a fragment of ice on the mile-long glacier could be broken without finding the remains of these jumping insects and what are believed to be tens of millions of grasshoppers entombed in the ice on both this glacier and in others nearby, so how exactly did they end up buried in the ice here? After all, these bugs are the ones most commonly associated with. with bounding across warm grassy plains, but that is not the case for all grasshoppers, Rocky Mountain locusts and extinct species of grasshoppers frequently migrated in swarms flying over the American Rocky Mountains.
Scientists believe that a swarm of billions of locusts migrating over the mountains were suddenly swept down. By a brutal winter storm, the damned critters crashed into the glacier that became their frozen tomb, while Rocky Mountain lobsters may no longer exist. Their frozen remains have at least given eager scientists a chance to discover more about these long-extinct insects. I bet we were jumping for joy we laughed Battlefield blizzard when you think of World War I what comes to mind muddy fields trenches rats although that may have been the case for most of the soldiers fighting on the front there were soldiers fighting in somewhere a little less known with the conditions they found themselves in Arguably much harsher: the White War is the name given to the fighting that took place in the Alps of northern Italy between Italian troops and Austro-Hungarian from 1915 to 1918.
Here fighting took place at altitudes of up to 12,000 feet, where temperatures drop that low. As negative 22 degrees Fahrenheit, stories of the fighting were somewhat frozen in time until recently, temperature increases caused much of the ice in the region to melt, revealing a variety of
shockingdiscoveries in 2021. Researchers excavated a artificial cave at the top of the Italian Alps, previously inaccessible. It was used as a shelter for Austrian soldiers and was left filled with long-forgotten artefacts, ammunition and animal skin jackets, straw mattresses, even ladles made from 10 tin cans, each fascinating find reminded how brutal life must have been for the soldiers here.
I mean, can you imagine? trying to stay comfortable while it's negative -22 degrees Fahrenheit outside and all you have to stay warm is a jacket and a straw mattress. Unfortunately, some more disturbing discoveries have also been unearthed here in 2012, the mummified remains of two Austrian soldiers were discovered and in recent years, more than 80 corpses have emerged from the Melting Mountain, surprisingly, however, the majority of These victims were not victims of enemy gunfire, but it is believed that most were eliminated by hypothermia and avalanches such as World War I could not have had worse laughs. Greenland, we have a problem about 20 years after the White War ended, another global conflict began in the form of World War II and American humans love to fight, don't they?
And just as the White War left behind some fascinating frozen relics, so did they. World War II In 1942 the United States began Operation Bolero, a campaign to deploy troops and equipment to Great Britain to fuel the Allied invasion of Europe. Part of the mission involved flying hundreds of US Army aircraft across the Atlantic, however, not all of the aircraft managed to reach their destination. In July 1942, six P-38 fighter planes heading to Britain had to perform a Emergency landing on a Greenland ice sheet due to adverse weather. Fortunately, the entire crew survived, but the plane did not.
The planes were so damaged that they were considered. Unrecoverable and abandoned on the ice sheet for decades, the forgotten fighter planes disappeared from one side after being gradually buried in more than 260 feet of snow and ice, until 1988, when the Greenland Expedition Society reached the ice sheet. ice in search of the planes. But as you might expect, finding something under so much snow and ice is not an easy task. Recovery teams use ground-penetrating radar, a lawnmower-searching device that uses radar pulses to obtain images of the subsurface. Within days, radar identified the location of one of the planes to delve into the team used as a super gopher and no, unfortunately, it was not a large rodent, it is a thermal fusion generator that helped the team carve a well of 260 feet deep in the ice.
After drilling, the team used a chain hoist to travel down the A daunting descent before steam housed a cavern around the plane, but the work didn't stop there to get the plane out of the ice: it was painstakingly disassembled piece by piece and taken back to the axis, if you have a Lego version, that's it, four months. After recovery began - all parts of one of the P-38s were salvaged - the aircraft appropriately named Glacier Girl returned to the US, where it was restored to flying condition today, more than 80 years after who landed on that fateful sheet of ice, the old man.
A girl could be seen flying through the sky at air shows in the US. That's what you call a comeback. Which of these Frozen finds surprised you the most? Have you ever discovered anything disturbing in ice except those frozen vegetables you've been eating in the fridge since 2010 let me know in the comments below and thanks for watching
