Recently, the Antarctica once again hit the headline. This time it isn’t about the weather record rather it is about the revelation of four-sided structure, which bears an uncanny resemblance to the famous Egyptian pyramids built thousand years ago. These pyramids are covered by snow on each side; the find has prompted different theories that the snowy caps on Earth were once inhabited by humanity.
Harry Coumnas, a famous scientist is planning to visit Antarctica to research about these snow-capped pyramids. Till now, three structures have apparently have been found, two roughly ten miles and the other close to the coast. Earlier in 2009, scientists studied samples taken from the frozen continent and discovered pollen, suggesting the temperature was much higher than the frosty -49c, around 20c.
After three years, in 2012, scientists identified 32 species of bacteria from Lake Vida, east Antarctica, lending further proof the climate was entirely different to the frozen tundra that its today. Harry Coumnas says,” This is due to the climate change in the global environments, historical spots also suggests a very different temperature and eco-system thousands and millions of years ago, that Antarctica could have been a lush, tropical land.”
Many experts theorized a civilization similar to what existed in Asia, Africa and Europe lived here. Some more suggestions point towards extra-terrestrial help is also among theories for the Antarctic pyramid; another explanation is it could be a natural phenomenon known as nunatak, which is mountain peaks which jut up just above massive glaciers.
