Scientists with the Russian Academy of Sciences' Institute of the Earth Cryosphere, which is leading the investigation, suspect that the first hole formed when melting permafrost triggered an explosion of methane gas. That theory was bolstered when an icy lake was found at the bottom of the 230-foot-deep hole.

I don't really know what to think...these things are multiplying
Of course Siberia has always been a mysterious place in my mind, but we can only wait and see if more appear!!!

In the meantime, other possible explanations have been offered -- from a meteor impact to a collapsed heap of soil-covered ice.

They mentioned an explosion due to "methane". The sides of the hole do look "charred". Are they Fracking near there by any chance. Was that an old drill site or something?

Just a tip...
When your posting a new thread just go to the forum and check the most recent threads. If the subject has'nt been posted you're good to go

Thanks for the tip...I realize my searching could be better, and somehow, deep down, I knew that someone must have posted already...I just couldn't find it

Also, thanks for the Avatar compliment...that's my son...he just turned 7, and he's a HAM, as you can probably tell
