Quote from source:
After the Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland erupted earlier this year dusrupting daily life throughout Europe, the heat it generated melted the adjacent glaciers, exposing the rocks and debris that now litter the valley. This huge unearthly rock, 15 meters tall and weighing 900 tons is one of them. It's been in its current location for only eight months.

How did it get there?


Thats one damn big rock.


It shows the power of glaciers and the amount of weight that can be moved.

I just had to share this picture because I saw it and was like WOW.


Maybe after the last ice age stones like this were littered everywhere and thats how some of the old civilizations used such huge rocks. Rather than moving them they found them.


Any thoughts?

what i dont get is if this was in ice... but its only been there for 8 months... which how we know that is beyond me...maybe the fact that its completely above ground or 8 months is only as long as they have seen it there... i dont get why they wonder how it got there... how did any rock get where it was.

I think they meant in one piece.


Interesting to see how these pieces of rock are moved. I think it was a naked science titled great lakes that showed this process and it was amazing.
