Stunning! Mysterious Snow Pyramids Discovered In Antartica


Three ancient pyramids have been discovered in the Antarctic by a team of American and European scientists and we brought the story to you.

Two of the pyramids were discovered about 10 miles inland, while the third one was very close to the coastline.

An expedition to the bizarre structures should answer the intriguing question of whether they are artificial or natural. The first reports on the pyramids appeared in western media last year.

The pyramids could serve as evidence that the ice-covered continent used to be warm enough to have had an ancient civilization living there.

At the current moment, little is still known about the pyramids and the team continues to keep silent about the discovery. The only reliable information provided by the scientists was that they were planning an expedition to the pyramids to research them more thoroughly and determine for sure whether the structures were artificial or natural. No details about the time frame of the expedition were offered.

In case the researchers prove the pyramids are man-made structures, the discovery may bring about the biggest revision of human history ever made.

Meanwhile, a number of strange but interesting discoveries have been made lately in the Antarctic.

In 2009 climate scientists found particles of pollen there, which could possibly testify that palm trees once grew in Antarctica and summer temperatures reached 70F.

Three years later, in 2012, scientists from Nevada’s Desert Research Institute identified 32 species of bacteria in samples of water from Lake Vida in East Antarctica.

Can it be possible that Antarctica was once warm enough in the recent past to actually have had an ancient civilization living there? And even more perplexing is the question of if an advanced culture did develop there, are there any structures still remaining that are buried underneath the ice?

Scholars and Egyptologists have long suspected that the Sphynx is far older than first estimated, possibly over 10,000 years old.

Scientists that discovered evidence of water erosion on the ancient statue, still the world’s largest, tell a story of climate change from rainy hot jungle to desert in just a few thousand short years.

If the climate in Egypt changed this quickly, is it not equally possible that the Antarctic climate could have also changed drastically in the same time? Legends speak of pyramids in the Antarctica, of the lost city of Atlantis being covered not just under water, but encased in ice.

Dr. Mitch Darcy, geologist at the German Research Centre for Geosciences told IFLScience this:

“It’s not a complicated shape, so it’s not a special coincidence either. By definition, it is a nunatak, which is simply a peak of rock sticking out above a glacier or an ice sheet. This one has the shape of a pyramid, but that doesn’t make it a human construction,"

We will let you be the judge on whether these pictures truly display artificial pyramids...

They may also be just the rocky tops of mountains but the images are intriguing and definitely impressive.
