Elon Musk’s fascination with Marx is no secret, but did you know he’s also exploring Antarctica? Looks like the South Pole holds more secrets than we imagined, the Tesla boss and a few other scientists Saw a huge mysterious object moving.
What could this icy continent be and why is it in Antarctica? Let’s dive into the mystery at the beginning. When the object was first observed, no one thought it was that large and that about half of it was covered in ice. This happened so many people assumed that it was.
Just an iceberg However when the object began to move and the ice melted it became clear that it was something else entirely which sparked the curiosity of scientists who immediately set to work to uncover the mystery as the research changed their perception of the object Interestingly, this is not the first time that strange things have been found in Antarctica in the year 2022.
And a satellite Strange Objects image of the Larsen Ice Shelf in Antarctica and drilling a hole in the ice found something beyond incredible. A vast ecosystem of microorganisms living beneath the surface. This vast underground habitat was filmed with thousands of tiny crustaceans. Also known as amplipods. Not only that, but all the scientists also discovered phytoplankton blooms living below the surface of the polar region, 500 meters below the surface. This discovery shocked the scientific humanity because earlier they thought that a phytoplankton could survive in such harsh conditions. It is impossible to survive.
Phytoplankton needed sunlight to make enough energy to survive, or so they thought. But with the discovery of phytoplankton, scientists discovered that it was possible for algae to survive in less than one percent of the light available on Antarctica’s surface. No stranger to incredible discoveries, but some of these findings push the limits of what we once thought a few years ago a team of scientists aboard an icebreaker discovered a collection of some 60 million ice fish nests in the Weddell Sea. Discovered an impressive collection. The crowd had stumbled upon a stunning sight with a safety net.
Parents watching closely found the nests were about 10 inches apart and the huge clusters were spread over an area of about 93 square kilometres, but that’s not even the most surprising find from the icy continent, is it? Mount Gumbotsev which is a true wonder of nature despite being located under the ice sheet and named after Russian scientists Grigory A. Gabertzev, a distance of over 1,200 kilometers and still towers over 3000 metres, or about a third the size of Mount Everest.
Believe it or not, researchers have yet to physically lay their eyes on these underground giants, their existence having been inferred through magnetic and gravity readings as far back as 1958, when scientists were able to study mountains from their base. are able, they still have to find out how or why they were made and they are amazed by them.
Upon closer inspection of the object, he began to notice some anomalies that did not correspond to the iceberg hypothesis, for example skid marks and grooves on its surface, which, like most icebergs, were difficult to extrapolate. was not transparent, but had a characteristic shade to it. These observations from Black Conspiracy Theories sparked a flurry of speculation and theories, with some suggesting it could be a military craft, despite it seeming like a far-fetched conspiracy theory to many.
However, this is only partially improbable given the geopolitical history of governments and military agencies in the region. The world has a long tradition of conducting classified operations in remote locations far from the ice to test cutting-edge technologies in comparison to the desolate and ruthless expanses of Antarctica. On 23 June 1961, the world’s most powerful nations came together to sign The Antarctic Treaty stipulated that they would give up their right to establish a military presence in Antarctica, unless it was for scientific research purposes.
It was the United States of America that was responsible for catalyzing the need for such an agreement after World War II. The US attempted to claim the continent and organized a military expedition called the High Jump consisting of 4,700 personnel and several ships, intended to trade military personnel to withstand the extreme cold and test various materials, but This provoked the anger of other countries.
Twelve countries, including Australia, Argentina, Belgium, Chile, France, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and the United States, eventually considered signing the treaty on Antarctica for military purposes, it argued . Seeing what these countries will do. With or without accretion as a location, scientists began to explore other possible explanations for a moving object and eventually concluded that these were not just actual meteorites, they are fragments that broke off asteroids that became smaller rocky bodies. which revolve around the Sun. A large number of asteroids can be found between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.
However, given that Mars is close to Earth, asteroids sometimes collide with the planet. On average, asteroids with a diameter of one kilometer collide with Earth every 500 000 years, while asteroids with a diameter of five kilometers do so once. 20 million years The most recent asteroid explosion occurred over Antarctica 430 000 years ago, with reports indicating that the asteroid should have hit the surface of Antarctica, but instead it exploded into the sky, now known as the Airbus Is.
This airbus caused several shrapnel to cover the surface beneath the space rock explosion. It is important to note that wind bursts are more destructive than regular asteroid crashes because when an asteroid crashes in a specific location it can affect an area much larger than Antarctica, accurately measured by humans. is not evaluated. The last 500,000 years means that wind bursts from asteroids and meteorites were mostly associated. If this theory holds up, it could be the first of many other theories.
The strange color of the object was probably the result of some of the asteroid’s factors. The eruption over Antarctica was 150 meters wide and was very close to the surface when it occurred, allowing nickel and magnesium-rich fragments to react with the Antarctic ice, resulting in meteorites. Scientists are sticking to this theory for now and they are considering that the reason it went undetected for so long was that the strange markings on the object were due to the eyes that covered it.
The reasons for this, and the fact that it was underwater for so long, have led some to doubt his conclusions, but the most straightforward theory is often the most accurate. This is similar to how scientists once thought they had discovered a pyramid in Antarctica, only to find that it was actually a mountain eroded by thousands of years of erosion, when enough research is done the truth will eventually be revealed.
