(ORDO NEWS) — Antarctica is an almost untouched territory where temperatures can drop to -90 ° C. Most of the mainland is being explored using satellites that regularly send images.
The latest image captured gave scientists serious thought. The picture shows ovals, which are quite wide (120 meters or more). The most mysterious thing is that in fact no one could leave traces, since the territory of Antarctica is a remote, untouched corner of the planet. The man could not draw ovals.
According to the archaeologist at University College London, Mark Altavil, in any other part of the Earth, experts would not be so puzzled, since what they saw can easily be called a trick of a person. However, there are no people in Antarctica, so what the ovals do in the center of the mainland is an open question.
At first, scientists thought that the pattern was created by the wind, and there are plenty of winds in Antarctica. Stock streams of air sometimes form something similar, snow dunes are called sastrugs.
The experts immediately rejected the guilt of the wind, since the sastruga always run parallel to the direction of the air flows. The satellite may have photographed the supra-glacial lakes. Only a trip to Antarctica will help to close the issue once and for all, but, of course, no one will organize the expedition. Experts will continue to build theories. Perhaps some explain the appearance of the anomaly.
