A team of British scientists has discovered tunnels that are almost as tall as the Eiffel Tower under an ice shelf in Antarctica. Researchers from a number of UK universities and the British Antarctic Survey - a research centre based on the continent - detected the tunnels when they flew a plane over the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf in West Antarctica. Radar from the plane, as well as satellite photos, revealed that ridges and cavities on the surface of the ice sheet corresponded to tunnels lying at its base.

Scientists are not really sure what caused the tunnels to from but they suggest that the may have been formed by water. However considering the rich and mysterious history of Antarctica I could not help but think of the myths of hollow earth.

What ever the cause of the tunnels further investigation is needed...

purp..

If the hollow earth is true, I'll shrink down to the size of a walnut and dress like a leprechaun forever. Parallel earths I can see. Hollow earth really flies in the fact of everything we think we know about geology. It could be a runoff tunnel. Similar things form in Hawaii where the lava meets the ocean. Source* I've walked inside of one.

Or, it could be the lost U-boat fleet, maybe Hitler's immortal cyborg is living down there on a secret base, channeling Thule, plotting his revenge. muhahaha

This is cool.
They should.sink a shaft down into one of them and go exploring.
Who knows what they might find. Could be a treasure trove for archaeologists, definitely for geologists.

I think at one time a lot of humans lived underground or in tunnels in the earth. This is where the saying came from as it is above it is below. Now a lot of those people may have died by different means throughout history. There could be some isolated cases of people still living in caves though. We live in big concrete apartment buildings today, not underground. Same thing, the building extends the electromagnetic field above us.

Ice caves caused by times of warmer water running at times through history is probably what they are.

they flew a plane over it? haven,t they flew space craft over planets and got it wrong?

lets wait till they actually go look and see if this is one thing they got right and not just something they believe is right.

I really want to see what exploring on location fonds too. My imagination just has too many possibilities right now.

Those tall concrete buildings also extend many floors underground. I used to work in telecoms and the number of basements, sub-basements, sub-sub-basements and drainage floors below the underground car parks would make you think the buildings just went down hundreds if not thousands of floors.

In Edinburgh, there are Ghost Tours that take you through the basements of the Old Town. In those days, overcrowding was so bad that underground cellars were rented out to families, only to have the Great Plague infect everyone and lead them to be being buried underground while still alive

I wouldn't mind reading a thread on that.

Maybe it's the entrance to The Mountains of Madness...

Some people feel more secure in a cement and steel building for some reason. I feel safer out amongst the trees in the woods. Seems like there are two kinds of people, cave/city dwellers and those who like to be in nature.

Wonder if it has anything to do with(Nazi) Germany's New Swabia where it's claimed that the Reich may have retreated to. It is a ways away of the stated location of the area and base. The tunnels may have been for easier travel to an Agartha entrance point?

Its the technology to dig these tunnels or to keep them open that interets me.

I read Ivan Sandersons invisible residents book years ago and have it somewhere in my library and have always been aware of his views that we have ufos capable of going underwater which have been witnessed by a huge amount of naval and sea faring captains that the scientists loath to take seriously - its a mystery and I wonder who is going to be brave enough to take a little trip down the tunnel with a camera? (Not me).

But wouldn't the Office of Naval Intelligence take this more seriously? With UFOs I'm pretty sure they'll do their own investigation.

VERY cool. Scientifically, as changing previously-held mistaken beliefs about melt-water patterns - and like you, makes me think of hollow earth myths too. At the least, I can picture cultures using those tunnels to shelter and for travel like they have in the Caucasus.

This is fascinating, given that life has been found in the lake's devoid of solar energy I wonder if any of these tunnel's are old enough to have life in them, it is also interesting that if they reached the sea they may very well be that same area that the German's supposedly called an impregnable fortress for there furure in new schwabenland, they definitely did do something there but what is the question, I believe though that after the us naval expedition they relocated to south america as they would definitely know that even if they had beaten the first expedition back then specialists expeditions would later have finished them off.
Of course there is this unproven and unprovable story,

For me it was not the technology but the snow men that made this unbelievable and I might have bought it except for this but I do believe the NAZI's did set up extensive facility's there with supply run's between antarctica and south america.

Me too. Did a quick search. Euuwwww. May we never see plague and quarantine.


In 1348 the Bubonic plague, otherwise known as “Black Death” would strike through London, and in less than a year Edinburgh would be under its grip. Environments such as those at One Mary King's Close were the ideal breading ground and it swept through the residents as easily as the air they breathed. Given the proximity to Edinburgh Castle and many other great estates the authorities acted quickly, but without mercy. All residents of One Mary King's Close, at this time estimated to be in the hundreds were sealed inside by the city guards. The doors bricked over, and what little windows there were covered with wood and mortar, the plague ridden population of One Mary King's Close were left to die, if not by plague then by starvation.

Despite the city’s best efforts the plague would continue to grow throughout Edinburgh, and the decision was made for the final solution in regards to the numerous plague houses such as One Mary King's Close. From good distance and the roof tops of buildings the City’s guards began the work of demolishing One Mary King's Close from the roof down with its plague ridden residents still inside. It’s said that the panic and screams of the huddled and dying could be heard all the way to the city walls.

Desperate to survive the residents fled to the cellars, where shoulder to shoulder with no room to even breath they were sealed in below the crumbling building above them. Their last days were spent in total darkness with no room to move. Folklore tells that the stronger of the buried took to cannibalism out of desperation, feeding on the living plague victims too weak to defend themselves.

If such evil could end, it should have ended there. The bodies were not removed for another five hundred years, and for those years few residents of Edinburgh knew only myths of the cellars sealed below their city near The Royal Mile. In the last century Edinburgh modernized and the cellars below One Mary King's Close were discovered. The preserved bones and artefacts were exhumed by teams of archaeologists and the location was converted into a museum of sorts. .....

Well the Germans managed Ohrdruf and that was classified for 100 years greyfalcon.us...

In 1943, Grand Admiral Karl Dönitz dropped a remarkable phrase:
Germany's submarine fleet is proud that it created an unassailable fortress for the Führer on the other end of the world.
