Possible pyramids at the South Pole? Intriguing photographs in Antarctica

Piramidi polo sudScience does not exclude that in the past Antarctica may have been a place with a temperate climate. It 'possible that some images taken in Antarctica reveal the' existence of pyramids under the ice of the South Pole?

If we look at the civilizations that have populated our planet since the dawn of time, the pyramid-shaped monument seems to be more appreciated by the ancient builders and, at the same time, the most enigmatic.

The pyramid was used as a type of architecture especially in Egypt and a number of pre-Columbian civilizations in the 'Central America. However, several contemporary archaeologists continue to discover monumental buildings of pyramidal shape in every corner of the planet.

In this sense, the more recent discovery is performed by Danny Hilman, Senior geologist of the Indonesian Center for Research geotechnical and holds a Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology.

The team led by Hilman is working on the site Ganung Padang, a hill hidden between the volcanoes in Indonesia and that could be the oldest monument ever discovered. The researcher, in fact, believes that the structures visible on the hill part of a pyramid that could date back more than 9000 years ago [Read article].

The year before, in August 2012, the amateur archaeologist Angela Micol announced that it has identified some unknown pyramids through satellite photographs of Google Earth.

According to the researcher, the structures visible from above would dwarf the three pyramids of the Giza Plateau. Apparently, some confirmation would come from a preliminary expedition sent to the coordinates of discovery, where it was detected the existence of cavities and wells. In addition, it was found that these formations are labeled as 'pyramids' on different maps of antiquity. [Read article].

But the real surprise could come from some pictures taken by a group of explorers engaged in climbing Vinson Massif, The highest mountain of Antarctica, located about 1,200 km from the South Pole. The mountain is about 21 km long and about 13 wide. It is located within the chain of the Sentinel Range.

The image was taken l 'December 1, 2010. At the bottom stands that according to some observers seems to be a pyramid of non-natural origin. The curious formation is located in an inland area about 18 km from the coast of Antarctica.

In the same shipment was taken another picture in which there are two pyramid-shaped structures near the coast.

Mountain formations are particularly accurate carved by nature, or may be other monuments built by the hands of old men?

We tried the satellite images on Google Maps, but the geographical area where they have been identified 'pyramids' is not accessible: it is not clear if the area was not covered by the satellites, or whether it was deliberately censored (there is always some conspiracy theorist amongst us).

A stepped pyramid at the South Pole

But the photos taken by the explorers are not the only images provide clues to the existence of pyramids under the ice of the South Pole between the ice of Antarctica there is exterminated Princess Elisabeth Station, A scientific research base Belgian entry into service in 2009.

Renè Robert, A French explorer, photographer, took some pictures near the base really intriguing. In the pictures you can see a structure similar to a stepped pyramid, right next to the research station.

What's this? A simple natural formation produced by a bizarre erosion of the rock? Or is the clearest proof of the existence of an ancient civilization Antarctic disappearance in ancient times?

To view images you can use Google Maps to the coordinates -71.95207, 23.346891 and activate the "Photo". In alternative you can search for pictures taken by Robert on his page Panoramio.

The formations are partially covered with snow and it is difficult to determine objectively whether the mountains particularly boxy and symmetrical or real pyramids.

But if training would prove to be of artificial origin, it would mean that in a remote time the Antarctic continent was home to a civilization as complex as the one who made the pyramids of Giza and the ice sheet at the South Pole could preserve the ancient ruins of a lost civilization .

Of course, the hypothetical construction of these pyramids date back to a geological period in which Antarctica was completely ice-free. In this case, you should rewrite the whole history of mankind, as a discovery would lead back the clock of history of many thousands of years, at least to the time when there were no ice at the South Pole

An extremely ancient tropical Antarctica

Science does not exclude that in the past Antarctica may have been a place with a temperate climate. According to a study published in Nature, Which gives an account of the website of the BBC, About 53 million years ago on the coast of Antarctica grew lush vegetation typically tropical. To prove the remains of pollen and spores recovered from the authors of the research in the course of drilling on the spot.

The study also indicates that at that time geologic Antarctic temperatures exceeded 10 degrees, while in summer could reach 25 degrees. The reason for this rise in temperatures has not yet been fully identified, probably it was a joint action of several factors, triggered by powerful volcanic eruptions and the different movement of ocean currents.

The theory of Pole Shift is the hypothesis according to which the axes of rotation of a planet have not always been in the same position of the current one, or that there will remain in the future.

In other words the physical pole of a planet you are or will be moved. This phenomenon is almost always related to the context of Earth, but other solar system bodies may have suffered an axial reorientation during their existence.

The effects of a shift in the main climate change affect the majority of the Earth, such as areas that previously formed the equatorial zone may become milder, and areas that previously had a more temperate climate regions, or may instead become more equatorial or more arctic.

15,000 years ago Antarctica without ice?

According to a study by researchers at the Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne published in the journal "Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology"The last ice age would have ended around 14,500 years ago.

The study reveals that Europe would have warmed by 5 degrees centigrade and the melting of glaciers would release nitrogen oxide into the atmosphere, in turn accelerating the process. The researchers say that most of the substance would be given off by the plants that were beginning to prosper in their own areas just heated.

A pole shift occurred 14,500 years ago, could send the current position Antarctic Polar, generating a sudden freezing of all that was on it?

The only thing that is certain is that this transition took place to coincide with one of the usual unexplained crisis, so serious as to constitute a watershed between two geological ages, the Pleistocene and the Holocene.

The Pleistocene era comes to an end, marked by a massive awakening of volcanic activity, earthquakes, scary, witnessed the collapse of the time in most of the caves in the world, and by terrible floods that sweep away millions of animals.

Throughout the world there is evidence of horrific massacres. How to explain this traumatic transition? The theories that attempt to explain the cause of a pole shift are manifold:

- An asteroid or a comet hitting the Earth fast with such an impact angle that the lithosphere moves independently from the Earth's mantle;

- An asteroid or a comet hitting the Earth fast at an angle of impact can shift the axis of the planet;
- Unusual magnetism of a celestial object which passes close enough to Earth to temporarily reorient the magnetic field, dragging the lithosphere to a new axis of rotation.

Possibly the magnetic field of the sun again restates the original one of the Earth, once the celestial body returns to a distance from which is no longer able to influence the Earth;

- A disruption of the topography of the boundary layer between the core and mantle, perhaps induced by the different rotation of the nucleus and the slipping of the axial rotation vector, controls the redistribution of mass of the boundary layer;

- The redistribution of mass in the mantle due to avalanches or other deformations of the mantle.

Correlation with the Pyramids of Giza

According to some researchers, the reading of the astronomical position of the Pyramids of Giza would provide an additional reference to dating in excess of 10 thousand years. The Theory of Correlation Robert Bauval and Adrian Gilbert, said that the construction of the Pyramids of Giza would take place in a period prior to 10,500 BC

The two researchers found that the position of the three major pyramids of the Giza necropolis match the astronomical configuration of the visible sky in the tenth millennium before Christ. The three pyramids recall the three belt stars of the constellation of Orion. According to the authors, this correlation was voluntarily created by people who built the pyramids of Giza.

The reference to the date of 12,500 years ago is significant to Hancock, as the position of the pyramids indicate the precise moment at which an advanced civilization prior to ours has seen its sunset because of a global cataclysm.

In his book Fingerprints of the GodsGraham Hancock found some thoughts which all lead to a precise point. According to Hancock, the Pyramids were built in every culture on the planet and their monuments astronomical configurations contain more or less obvious.

In this paper, wide-ranging Graham Hancock tries to bring order to the chaos of the prehistory of mankind.

Starting from the ancient remains of numerous populations and comparing them to one side with the myths and legends universal, the other with the study of maps dating back to ancient times, the researcher hypothesizes the existence of a people with a ' superior intelligence, possessing sophisticated technology and detailed scientific knowledge, whose "footprints", however, were completely wiped out by a disaster of huge proportions.
