Researchers at Brazil's National Observatory have discovered evidence of a massive underground river flowing deep beneath the Amazon River
Like the Amazon, the river flows west to east, but is considerably wider (200-400 kilometers) and moves at only a fraction of the speed of the giant surface river.
The Amazon is Earth's largest river — every day up to 17 billion metric tons of water flow into the Atlantic Ocean. For reference, the Amazon discharges enough fresh water daily into the Atlantic to supply New York City’s freshwater needs for nine years.

According to Professor Jostrum of Sweden, in his book "Subdue the Earth", he states that during the depth of Ice Ages sea level world wide drops by as much as 6000 meters below the present day level.
The "river" has been widely reported, after a study on it was presented to a Brazilian science meeting last week.
But the researchers involved told BBC News that water was moving through porous rock at speeds measured in cm, or inches, per year - not flowing.
