Recently, the scientific world was shocked by a sensation that calls into question all the usual ideas about how our planet works. British scientists ‘listened’ to the Earth with the help of the latest depth and seismographic equipment and came to an incredible conclusion: our planet may be completely empty inside.
The hollow Earth theory, in particular its theorists, believed that it was in the polar zones that there was an entrance to this underground world. The hypothesis that the entrance to the underworld, if it exists, of course, is located at the South Pole under the age-old ice of Antarctica, has been haunting the scientific world for many years.
Modern science claims that our Earth is solid. It consists of the bark on which we live, grow plants, extract oil and ore. Next is the mantle. According to scientists, this is hot magma, which sometimes erupts to the surface in the form of volcanic eruptions. In the very center, the core is the hot heart of our planet. However, recent experiments suggest that these ideas may be erroneous. After listening to the planet with ultra-precise instruments, scientists came to the conclusion that the Earth is buzzing like a vessel that is completely hollow inside. But, by conducting extensive research, scientists came to even more incredible conclusions. It may turn out that our planet inside is not empty, but all the space there is filled with water.
According to this amazing version, a small inner star shines inside this huge underwater world – its own sun. But the most incredible thing is that it may turn out that this world is inhabited. But what forms of life are hiding under the thickness of the Antarctic ice?
For many years, scientists believed that Antarctica is millions of tons of ice surrounded by water. However, recent polar explorers discovered ancient details and a lake at a depth of one thousand two hundred meters. Arctic ice hid it for several million years. A thick ice cover protected the practically sterile water from all external influences: climatic, natural and atmospheric changes. That is why scientists have put forward a sensational hypothesis that creatures unknown to us and even civilizations that have been living there for more than 60 million years can live in the waters of the East.
The discovery of this unique lake allowed scientists to assume that it is she who hides the gate to the unexplored underwater world of the Earth. But what will scientists discover when they can look into the uncharted underwater world with the help of the latest deep-sea instruments? What creatures will they encounter at the bottom of this unique lake?
However, the more scientists approached the mysterious alien world in the underworld, the more obstacles they encountered on their way. This expedition almost became the last one for Russian polar explorers. On February 5, 2011, scientists reported that at a depth of almost 4,000 meters they had reached the surface of a subglacial lake. But a few hours later, communication with a group of Russian researchers was lost. For five days there were no messages from the station. Soon, representatives of the Antarctic expedition issued a statement that communication interruptions on the continent were commonplace, and drilling work on the lake was postponed until next year. But what really happened?
Why did Russian scientists leave Antarctica when the solution was so close? After all, only a few meters separated the polar explorers from the opportunity to look deep into the unique lake and see the unexplored underwater world of Antarctica. According to the official version, the work was stopped because the winter period began on the southern continent. Ice storms and frost would not allow scientists to continue their research. However, there is another version, the researchers stopped work because they are afraid of what they might encounter if they penetrated into the depths of the lake. After all, there is a great danger that, having opened the mysterious door to the underwater world, scientists will release mysterious creatures that have been living there for millions of years to the surface. It can be a huge monster or unknown bacteria. In any case, this encounter does not bode well for humanity.
The first samples of ice taken from the surface of the ancient lake Vostok have already given scientists grounds for a new sensation. So, they suggest that living organisms can live in the underwater lake. Moreover, scientists believe that the particles of living organisms that are in Lake Vostok may be identical to those hidden under the ice caps of the planet Europa. And this may mean that life came to Earth from outer space and originated in Antarctica.
That is why the unique technologies that are used today to penetrate Lake Vostok will very soon be used to search for extraterrestrial life:
In the first place is the polar caps of Mars are considered, and a satellite in the planet Jupiter, Europa. Naturally, there is certain information that there is water under the ice sheets of these planets. If you are looking for this life, then you need to look in the water.
This gives scientists reason to believe that planet Europa was once as alive as the Earth. But as a result of the ice age or other unknown cataclysm, life on it died. The only samples of living microorganisms could be preserved in the water, which is hidden under the thickness of the ice. This water can store the entire history of the planet. But, in addition, under the ice caps of planet Europe, the answer to many questions related to the history of the Earth can be hidden. Indeed, according to one version, a fragment of this particular planet fell to Earth millions of years ago, and strains of an unknown space virus turned out to be on it.
And today scientists have a chance not only to unravel the mystery of the origin of life on Earth, but also to find out who inhabited millions of years ago, and most importantly, how these creatures disappeared. The unique high-purity penetration technology was developed by Russian scientists specifically for the non-freezing Lake Vostok. A column of water rises to the top and in no case kerosene, especially since it cannot be mixed with water. Here he goes right upstairs. This is the whole secret of environmentally friendly penetration. If the calculations of scientists are correct, then no particles from the surface of the Earth will fall into the sterile lake.
However, the system of pure penetration does not protect against the entry of unknown microorganisms from the lake to the Earth. Therefore, there is a real danger that scientists can release the most ancient deadly bacteria to the surface. The alarm of Russian scientists is justified, because it may turn out that it was these microscopic creatures that once caused the extinction of life on planet Europa and, quite possibly, even caused the death of ancient reptiles. What if this unknown virus survived in the ice of Antarctica? After all, this could mean that humanity will very soon be on the verge of extinction. And more recently, scientists have put forward an incredible hypothesis, according to which not all prehistoric lizards and dinosaurs died out.
Some of the surviving individuals still live in the depths. If this is true, then are people ready for what they may encounter by opening the gates of the icy Universe? In 2011, for the first time, a paleontologist managed to find the remains of a giant predator titanosaur on an icy continent near Lake Vostok. Until that moment, it was believed that the ancient reptiles never lived on the southern mainland.
Now, fragments of the skeleton from huge creatures have been found on James Ross Island in Antarctica. This discovery gave scientists the opportunity to put forward a new theory. After all, it is in the East that unusual creatures can live, which developed according to completely different laws of evolution, differently than all other organisms on our planet. Among the underwater inhabitants of Lake Vostok, there may even be ichthyosaurs.
These creatures reached 24 meters in length and resembled a hybrid of a fish and a dolphin. According to some assumptions, they mutated under the influence of external factors, such as global climate change, and managed to adapt to harsh water conditions. After all, such a lake never penetrates the light and, moreover, hold a monstrously high pressure. The paleontologists finds also prove the fact that dinosaurs really inhabited Antarctica millions of years ago.
This, in turn, confirms the hypothesis that about 70 million years ago, the icy continent was completely green. It had rivers and lakes, and even mountains. But what happened to Antarctica millions of years ago? Why did the whole living world of this continent disappear once and for all under the thickness of ice?
There is a hypothesis about the existence of the Gondwana supercontinent. It is this continent hosted by modern South America and Africa, a layer of the Hindustan Peninsula, the islands of Madagascar, Australia, New Zealand and Antarctica. Here it was a single large supercontinent, which was located in temperate latitudes. Further, when, as a result of tectonic movements, this supercontinent broke into separate constituent parts, and these parts began to drift. So Antarctica began to move in the direction of its current position. When approaching the south pole of the Earth, it gradually cooled down until it was completely covered with an ice shell.
All the prehistoric creatures that lived on the mainland, left without food, gradually died out. But what if some individuals were still able to adapt to the cold conditions of Antarctica? After all, it is quite possible that now they live in a huge underwater world, hidden inside the icy land.
The Antarctic subglacial lake is a special landmark of where to look for the entrance. And what if this entrance is hidden under the lake water? It is known that today Russian engineers have developed unique technologies that make it possible to dig tunnels of incredible length directly under water.
If you build a direct tunnel through Lake Vostok, then pump out excess water, and then continue to deepen the tunnel, then it is quite possible that unexpected discoveries await a person there. Even if humanity manages to create an artificial tunnel inside the Earth, what can we face there? What if the inner cavities of the planet are already inhabited?
