That found the bottom of the mysterious crater in Yamal
When last year in Yamal only found huge "black hole", the scientists had to sweat much to establish the reasons for its occurrence. The earth literally collapses under your feet, so that the researchers were able to descend to the bottom of the 35-meter crater is only the third time. Let's see how the descent, and that they were able to find.
So, before you a huge failure, which was formed on the Yamal Peninsula in July last year.
Using the GPR could enlighten the bottom of the funnel. Researchers have found that 35 meters deep dip has the shape of a giant fungus, tapering downwards and widening closer to the surface. "The first time we went down to the bottom of the funnel. Feeling beyond words, "- said one of the researchers, Vladimir Pushkarev.
"It is evident that in the summer on the walls of the funnel drains water. Its bottom has been turned into a small lake, which was frozen. "
"First there was smoke, very thick smoke," - said one of them. "This was followed by a bright flash, the earth shook, and the hole was formed at this point."
Interestingly, the funnel formed at different locations, but both are equidistant from the Arctic Circle. The reason for their occurrence is still uncertain.
