    Top 10 STRANGEST Holes on Earth


    Top 10 holes including the biggest, deepest, scariest, most mysterious, and strangest.

    Number 10. The Darvaze Gas Crater. In Turkmenistan is the burning, stinking, sulphurous crater known as the Gate to Hell. In 1971 Soviet engineers were drilling the area known to hold one of the largest deposits of natural gas. Number 9. The Well Of Chand Baori. Legend has it that this 13 story water well was carved out of the rock by spirits in a single night, and dedicated to the Hindu goddess of happiness. There are 3500 perfectly symmetrical steps leading to the bottom, which is about 10 degrees cooler than at the surface. Number 8. The KTB Superdeep Borehole. Starting in 1982, the German Ministry of Research began a scientific exploration drilling program, deep into the earth's crust, that would last more than 12 years and cost more than a third of a billion dollars, their most expensive geo-science project ever. Number 7. The Guatamala City Sinkhole. In 2010, a massive hole suddenly opened up in the middle of the city and swallowed a three story factory house, along with fifteen people inside. The cause was attributed to Tropical Storm Agatha, which impacted Guatamala just three days after the eruption of Volcano Pacaya. Number 6. Siberian Craters. Yet another new geological phenomenon was discovered in 2014 when a reindeer herder discovered a two hundred foot crater in a remote area known as The End Of The World. Number 5. Indiana Dunes National Park. An amazing new geological phenomenon was only discovered in the last few years, when shifting sands have suddenly opened up massive sinkholes beneath travelers' feet. Number 4. Monticello Dam Hole - This Majestic spillhole, also known as the glory hole is part of the Monticello Dam in Napa County, California. This hole is the largest spillhole in the world and leads down a 304 foot or 93 m tall hole which drains out out of the bottom of the dam. Number 3. Devil's Sinkhole. This Texan National Natural Landmark is an enormous vertical cavern 50 feet wide and 350 feet deep. Historically it's been used as a place of shelter by early American settlers and countless generations of Native Americans. Number 2. Derinkuyu. In central Turkey, a man was renovating his traditional home when he discovered a hidden room with a covered hole in the wall. Investigation revealed that the opening led into a massive man-made cave system that had been carved out of the rock over three thousand years ago, to form an underground city. Number 1. The Oak Island Money Pit. In 1795 witnesses thought they saw pirates burying treasure on a small coastal island in Nova Scotia. So they started digging, and digging... and digging... to over 130 feet deep, with tantalizing clues revealed every ten feet or so, some promising a treasure worth hundreds of millions or perhaps much much more.

    7 Things About EARTH Science CANT Figure Out


    7 Things We Don't Know About Earth...

    From how it even works to where and how life began, to who picked the name Earth....these are 7 Things About Earth Science Just Can't Figure Out.

    Narration provided by JaM Advertising New Mexico tasteofjam.com

    Plate tectonics is the accepted theory that Earth's crust and upper mantle is made of large fragments which glide over the rest of the mantle, collectively forming a shell to protect us from the firey-death 60 kilometres beneath our feet - but as for what's below that, we're still working that out.

    By analysing sedimentary and volcanic rocks we can track changes in the Earth's magnetic field throughout our planet's history, and in doing so we've noticed some rather strange anomalies, one of which is occurring right now.
    The prediction of earthquake activity and volcanic eruption has improved significantly over the past century, but there are still many things we don't know about these devastating natural disasters which would really help us prepare for them in future, and that would mean we can quit making cheap-ass disaster movies where Morgan Freeman always seems to be President.

    It's a good job classy civilizations from antiquity were the ones who named our Solar System's planets. Mars was the Roman God of War, Jupiter the Roman God of Sky, and Uranus the Greek God of Heavens - but if they were all named today we'd call them Planet McPlanetyface, Ringy Ringerson and…and we'd probably keep Uranus because it's funny.

    If any 20th Century Fox producers are watching this we are not referring to those Ray Romano movies you keep making. You've done five already guys, that's enough, it's time for the Ice Age to end, Sid and Manny to go extinct and their corpses to start rotting into mush.

    Far likelier than a sudden ice age is an extreme global heat crisis, because today around 97% of climate scientists agree climate change is occurring; and 82% believe it is likely caused by the activities of man. But if you disagree with them that's fine, everyone's entitled to their opinion, however you will be forced to go sit in the special corner with Bobby Ray Simmons to discuss flat earth theories and how the moon is made of cheese.

    EARTH - One video you NEED to see


    SONG: Two Steps From Hell - Eria
    I'm aware of the grammar mistakes in the introduction. I'm also aware that it's is an abbreviated version of it is. I don't need a lecture on correct English. I was extremely tired and made a couple of errors regarding grammar. My mistakes don't take anything away from the sentiment of the introduction or video. I'm human, I make mistakes, deal with it.

    This video was created by David Bayliss*

    However, the majority of the footage used in this video is the property of TS Production LLC. The footage is freely available to download and distribute around the world.

    * Most of the footage is that of TS production LLC, In this video I have re-mastered the quality, added visual enhancements, effects, adding secondary objects (suns etc), music, extended the video with more clips, titles, a much more. Therefore this video was created by myself but I do not claim to own the footage. I have not mixed any of the original footage around because it was already in the perfect order. If you believe all I have done is taken the original footage and added different music, you would be wrong. The overall quality, effects and feel to the video has been enhanced. In my opinion and those who have commented.

    Over the years we’ve learned more and more about the planet we call home, Earth. We’ve explored the land masses, dove in the sea and even flew into the sky and viewed it from above. Despite all this, there’s still so much we don’t know. How deep are our oceans? What kinds of creatures live there? How does the rainforest affect us? What causes some of the incredible phenomenons we witness? What are we doing that affect the Earth? No matter how far science has come over the years, there’s still so much left to explore and discover. So many things we haven’t even imagined could be possible. With the billions of species of plants, animal and microscopic life on this planet of ours, it’s no wonder we haven’t seen it all yet. There are also quite a few examples of things we have dovered however, that are just not common knowledge. Here’s hoping we can change that.

    Top AMAZING Facts About The Planet Earth!

    List of AMAZING Facts About The Planet Earth:
    11. Earth has a heartbeat
    The planet Earth pulses with a special kind of resonant wave. The beat is a quasi standing electromagnetic wave that beats at around 8 cycles per second. When lightning strikes the earth around 4 million times a day, it creates electromagnetic waves in the atmosphere. These waves are caught between the ground and the upper atmosphere, sixty miles up. Most of them just dissipate but others with the right wavelength and frequency keep going and get bigger and bigger. They are standing waves that pulse, creating the amazing illusion of a heartbeat, known as the Schumann Resonance. Scientist thought it was always confined to the planet Earth, trapped under the ionosphere but in 2011 NASA scientists detected the waves 500 miles up in space. There is also an amazing Superdeep Hole in Germany drilled by the German Continental Deep Drilling Program, one of the most amazing geoscientific projects ever. The project’s goal was to grant scientists the opportunity to study the planet earth’s crust, the effects of stress on layers of rock and observe any abnormalities along the way. A Dutch artist wanted to know what the planet sounded like, so arranged to have a geophone lowered into the hole to record ultrasonic waves. The sound eerily resembles a heartbeat.
    10. Largest living thing
    Forget blue whales and giant redwood trees. The largest living thing on planet Earth is a humungous, amazing fungus. Scientists had never really paid much attention until recently, when they realized how large they could get. Known as honey fungus, the large clumps of yellowish brownish mushrooms that appear above the ground are the fruits, so to speak, of much larger organisms. Mycelia are amazing underground networks of tubular filaments that spread out and if they come into contact with another genetically identical mycelia, they can fuse together to form one individual. The honey fungus tunnels underground causing massive tree die-offs and destroying gardens. It also tastes amazing in spaghetti sauce! The team that investigated a wide spread tree die off in Oregon discovered one organism that covered an area of 3.7 sq. miles and was somewhere between 1,900 and 8,650 years old! Not really specific but even 1900 years old is impressive!
    9. Humans are not the only ones responsible for wide-scale extinctions
    The Great Oxygenation Event, was the appearance of dioxygen (02)in Earth's atmosphere. The actual causes are still under debate but it has something to do with oceanic cyanobacteria which became the first microbes to produce oxygen by photosynthesis about 2.3 billion years ago, about 200 million years before the GOE. This extra oxygen they started creating (after a confusing chemical process that we don't have time to get into) started building up in the atmosphere which set the original atmosphere off balance. Earth's skies used to be orange full of hydrocarbon particles and iron supporting anaerobic life. All of this oxygen was toxic to these organisms and wiped out most of the anaerobic inhabitants. Cyanobacteria is therefore responsible for one of the most significant extinction events in history. Within 200 million years, life before then was wiped out, transforming the orange skies into blue and laid the foundation for aerobic organisms and life the way it exists today.
    8. Creeping Magnetic Pole
    Earth’s North Pole is moving as the ice melts and Earth's distribution of mass changes. So you can still travel north to go the North pole but will also have to head eastward. Earth rotates on an invisible axis and the places where the axis intersects with the planet's surface are the north and south poles. Due to the Earth's wobble these spots drift around in cycles. Scientists pinpoint the geographic north and south poles by taking long term averages of the rotational positions. Over the past 100 years, the poles have wandered about a few centimeters a year and would shift back and forth. Since 2000, its been moving about 10 centimeters a year. If ice disappears from one part of the spinning Earth and resettles elsewhere as water, the planet shifts on its axis toward the place where it lost mass. Scientists are still trying to determine what repercussions this may have regarding climate change and how to apply this to our GPS and satellite systems.

    Top 10 MYSTERIOUS Events on Earth


    Top 10 Mysterious Events on Earth in history including the unsolved, weirdest, and strangest.

    It Begins by Raining Inside) This might be one of the most insane mysteries I’ve heard. While on prison furlough to attend a funeral, Donnie Decker was visiting with friends in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania and suddenly went into a trance. Rain began falling from the ceiling of the room. His friend, not knowing what to make of it, called the landlord over to investigate, but the landlord was equally puzzled, especially when rain started falling up from the floor and even sideways! Infected With the Otherworldly…?) That's what may have happened to some doctors who treated Gloria Ramirez whom checked into the emergency room of the Riverside General Hospital in Riverside, California. Upon attempting to stabilize her and treat her symptoms, medical personnel noticed an oily substance accompanied by a garlic-like smell coming from Gloria's body, and an ammonia-like smell coming from a sample of her blood. A medical resident passed out after viewing a beige-colored substance in the blood sample. HULK SMASH….in Russia?) It's 1959 in the Ural Mountains of the Soviet Union and ten hikers embark on a cross-country trip. One returns early because of illness, and nine are later found dead by rescuers. But, there is something odd: even though there are no signs of struggle, what is alarming is the injuries: fractured bones and even a missing tongue, but no external damage. It's Raining Blobs) In the summer of 1994, Oakville, Washington residents were surprised to see something eerily like it falling from their skies. People noticed that the rain that day was. ….um….different …..in that it came down as clear, gelatinous blobs. Days later, nearly everyone in town was suffering from severe flu-like symptoms, in some cases even lasting for months. Do You Hear the Hum?) If you hear a constant humming noise that you can't explain, you're not alone, it might be The Hum.
    People in Taos, New Mexico have contended with a low frequency humming noise they can't explain, other than to say it sounds like a diesel engine. Variations of the hum have been heard all over the world and have even been mapped. Teleporting in 1593) When someone says the word teleportation, we often think of Star Trek beaming Captain Kirk to the Enterprise. Rarely do we consider that teleportation happened in the past. In the FAR past. In 1593, Gil Perez was a soldier in Manila guarding the governor's mansion just after said governor had been assassinated. Maybe it was all the excitement around the event. Maybe it was the heat. Massive UFO Follows Plane) The pilots together had more than 30 years of experience and observation. But they are unprepared for what they see next. A pair of lights appear on the horizon and they report it to Anchorage air traffic control. They approached and then closely followed the Japanese plane, and one of the objects was 2 to 3 times the size of Flight 1628. And Suddenly, A Lake!) Suddenly, in the middle of the hot and dry summer of 2014, some local shepherds came upon a lake about 2.5 acres wide and between 30-40 feet deep. Neutron Stars, Black Holes and...Japanese Trees?) What do neutron stars, black holes, and Japanese cedar trees have to do with each other? Fusa Miyake, a cosmic-ray physicist from Nagoya University in Japan, was studying tree ring data to look for evidence of big, cosmic events using carbon dating techniques. He found one. Approximately 775 AD was a big year for tree growth, largely due to a spike in carbon-14 detected in the rings of Japanese cedar trees. Mile-wide UFOs) This is number one for a simple reason. It really, really scares me. In February 2007, a pilot, his passengers, and two radar ground stations spotted and tracked a mile-wide UFO for 55 minutes. The pilot, Ray Bower, who had over 20 years flying experience, observed the yellow, cigar-shaped craft as he was flying over the Channel Islands toward Germany. Bower said he saw brilliant white light coming from it which turned a more yellow hue as he approached it. It had the appearance of a CD disc looked at edge-on. At first he thought it was only about 10 miles away and about the size of a 737, but later he realized it was 40 miles away and about a mile wide.

    ► Planet Earth: Amazing nature scenery



    Planet Earth is a 2006 television series produced by the BBC Natural History Unit. After I have watched all eleven episodes, I tried to compress all the beautiful images in one video. That's how I come up with this marvelous 13 minutes. If you really like this I suggest you to watch the hole documentary because at the end of each fifty-minute episode, a ten-minute featurette takes a behind-the-scenes look at the challenges of filming the series.

    Why Mars Died, and Earth Lived


    This video explores the most basic question of all: why we explore space? Be sure to experience the visual spectacle in full HD, 1080P.

    The Mars rover, Curiosity, is the latest in a long line of missions to Mars: landers sent to scoop its soil and study its rocks, orbiters sent to map its valleys and ridges.

    They are all asking the same question. Did liquid water once flow on this dry and dusty world? Did it support life in any form? And are there remnants left to find? The science that comes out of these missions may help answer a much larger, more philosophical question.

    Is our planet Earth the norm, in a galaxy run through with life-bearing planets? Or is Earth a rare gem, with a unique make-up and history that allowed it to give rise to living things? On Mars, Curiosity has spotted pebbles and other rocks commonly associated with flowing water.

    It found them down stream on what appears to be an ancient river fan, where water flowed down into Gale Crater. This shows that at some point in the past, Mars had an atmosphere, cloudy skies, and liquid water flowing. So what could have turned it into the desolate world we know today?

    One process that very likely played a role goes by the unscientific name, sputtering. Like the other planets in our solar system, Mars is lashed by high-energy photons from the Sun. When one of these photons enters the atmosphere of a planet, it can crash into a molecule, knocking loose an electron and turning it into an ion. The solar wind brings something else: a giant magnetic field. When part of the field grazes the planet, it can attract ions and launch them out into space.

    Another part might fling ions right into the atmosphere at up to a thousand kilometers per second. The ions crash into other molecules, sending them in all directions like balls in a game of pool. Over billions of years, this process could have literally stripped Mars of its atmosphere, especially in the early life of the solar system when the solar wind was more intense than it is today.

    Sputtering has actually been spotted directly on another dead planet, Venus. The Venus Express mission found that solar winds are steadily stripping off lighter molecules of hydrogen and oxygen. They escape the planet on the night side... then ride solar breezes on out into space.

    This process has left Venus with an atmosphere dominated by carbon dioxide gas... a heat trapping compound that has helped send surface temperatures up to around 400 degrees Celsius. The loss of Venus' atmosphere likely took place over millions of years, especially during solar outbursts known as coronal mass ejections.

    If these massive blast waves stripped Venus and Mars of an atmosphere capable of supporting life how did Earth avoid the same grim fate? We can see the answer as the solar storm approaches earth. Our planet has what Mars and Venus lack - a powerful magnetic field generated deep within its core.

    This protective shield deflects many of the high-energy particles launched by the Sun. In fact, that's just our first line of defense. Much of the solar energy that gets through is reflected back to space by clouds, ice, and snow.

    The energy that earth absorbs is just enough to power a remarkable planetary engine: the climate. It's set in motion by the uneveness of solar heating, due in part to the cycles of day and night, and the seasons. That causes warm, tropical winds to blow toward the poles, and cold polar air toward the equator.

    Wind currents drive surface ocean currents. This computer simulation shows the Gulf Stream winding its way along the coast of North America. This great ocean river carries enough heat energy to power the industrial world a hundred times over.

    It breaks down in massive whirlpools that spread warm tropical waters over northern seas. Below the surface, they mix with cold deep currents that swirl around undersea ledges and mountains. Earth's climate engine has countless moving parts: tides and terrain, cross winds and currents -- all working to equalize temperatures around the globe.

    Over time, earth developed a carbon cycle and an effective means of regulating green house gases. In our galaxy, are still-born worlds like Mars the norm? Or in Earth, has Nature crafted a prototype for its greatest experiment... Life?

    Layers of the Earth—How were they found? What are they?


    From IRIS' Education & Public Outreach.
    How do we know what is deep inside the Earth? And who discovered it?
    The Earth has 3 main layers based on chemical composition: crust, mantle, and core. Other layers are defined by physical characteristics due to pressure and temperature changes. This animation tells how the layers were discovered, what the layers are, and a bit about how the crust differs from the tectonic (lithospheric) plates, a distinction confused by many.
