The international group of scientists of the PolarGAP project the other day, as reports Planet Today, has flown around on an airplane a certain territory of Antarctica using radar, penetrating the ice for more than three kilometers.
The expedition, it is specified, was successful, moreover, during it even something unexpected was revealed: in the east of the mainland, scientists discovered a powerful heat flux, which, presumably, could be cause radioactive radiation. That’s what Tom says about it Jordan is a researcher for UAS (British Antarctic Survey), one of the participants of the flyby:
The source of radiation is unknown to us, it is quite possible that this is how a radioactive rock behaves, which at a depth of three thousands of meters created a hot lake. Does all this affect melting a flyer in Antarctica? Of course, however, this is not important for huge continent. Such processes can go here for millennia and even millions of years, without fundamentally changing anything. Although in the future everything can change as global warming observed on the whole planet, whether you want it or not, it overlaps with this heat source – and for this reason the region can become quite vulnerable to major changes.

Scientists do not disclose the exact location of the identified source powerful radiation, reporting only that this site is 750 kilometers from the coastline of Antarctica. Recall that something similar last year found in the western part of the ice mainland, and in July this year under the Pine Island Glacier glacier an underground volcano allegedly found. All this contributes to the intense melting of ice in Antarctica, which is observed in recent years, although the causes of the most hidden phenomena, like today’s a powerful source of radiation, scientists are not yet known. Are under construction all kinds of assumptions, but researchers have not yet shared them with the general public.
As the same Tom Jordan emphasized, unlike all kinds of fans of abnormal phenomena and ufologists, periodically finding anything in Antarctica, anything from aliens, their “flying saucers” and ending with mysterious monsters and giants past eras, real scientists cannot build unreasonably some theories. In this case, it’s better not to say something than express unnecessary, unreasonable, because it is not known how this information will turn out to be false or true. Time and further research will certainly bring us closer to the truth, and then you can will say something more specific …
