A long time has passed since Antarctica was discovered. But to this day, this part of the planet remains a real mystery. Today, many secrets are hidden under kilometers of ice that humanity does not know about.
Now, the most interesting mystery is considered the gravitational anomaly, which is located in the Wilkes region of Earth. When a NASA satellite flew over the area in 2002, it registered a strange pulse. It came from the space under the ice, with a diameter of about 500 kilometers.
A scientific group led by Prof. Ralf von Frese in 2006 found a huge crater. At a depth of 850 meters, the probe that the scientists lowered came across an unknown dense mass, the width of which was about 300 kilometers. Experts suggest that there is a metal object inside the crater that emitted the strange pulse.
Scientists believe that beneath the kilometers of ice in Antarctica are the remains of a giant asteroid. But at the same time, it remains a mystery how the Earth remained intact after a collision with such an incredibly large object.
Other experts believe that there is definitely a space body in Antarctica, but so far there is no way to get to it to study. An expedition of this nature requires a lot of resources. If we talk about the cost of such an expedition, then the cost will be approximately the same as the cost of a manned flight to Mars.
While scientists have not received accurate information about the strange object, conspiracy buffs offer their versions. Many are sure that a huge alien spacecraft crashed in this place. Others believe that an alien base was built at this location.
