The Deepest Hole On Earth Was Permanently Sealed Up Because Scientists Found This

While scientists have spent decades trying to get closer as possible to the center of the earth on a remote peninsula in Northwestern Russia, after discovering something unexpected happening, the researchers were forced to stop their experiment for good.

According to some experts believe, we are totally ignorant about what exists beneath the Earth’s surface. In the United States and the Soviet Union during the Cold War, only a few people remember the equally fascinating battle to conquer the subterranean world. Beginning in the late 1950s, American and Soviet scientific teams started experiments in order to penetrate the center of the Earth. The dense surface, which goes up to 50 kilometers into the center of our planet, eventually gives way to a mysterious inner layer that makes up 40% of the Earth’s mass.

In 1958, the United States went ahead in the race and launched Project Mohole. Located near Guadalupe in Mexico, the operation involved a team of engineers drilling the Pacific Ocean floor, but eight years after it started its funding got cut off and the project was abandoned. In the end, Americans never reached the center, but the Soviets also tried. In 1970, a team of researchers started drilling into the earth in the Pechengsky district, a sparsely populated region of Russia’s Kola Peninsula. Their goal was to try and get as close as possible to the center.

But the Soviets were trying to reach a depth of about 49,000 feet below the Earth’s surface using specialized equipment. They started to dig a series of holes all branching off from a single main cavity. But while they were slowly getting there, the US also made progress of its own. In 1974, the Lone Star Producing Company started to drill for oil in Washita County, western Oklahoma. In the process, the company created the Bertha Rogers Hole, a man-made wonder that reached more than 31,400 feet, or nearly six miles, below the earth’s surface.

Although Lone Star did not find what they were looking for, it remained in the deepest hole on the planet for another five years. Then in 1979, one of Kola’s holes christened SG-3, smashed the record and by 1983, the hole, which was nine inches wide, also went down an impressive 39,000 feet into the Earth.

Once this milestone was reached, researchers on the Kola Peninsula stopped working on the hole for 12 months so that people could visit the fascinating site. However, when they went back to work the following year, a technical problem forced them to stop drilling.

Reluctant to accept their defeat, the researchers abandoned the drilling and started again from a depth of 23,000 feet. By 1989, it had reached a record 40,230 feet and an incredible 7.5 miles. Optimistic about the future, they all believed that it would reach 44,000 ft by the end of 1990. Impressively, predictions even said it could reach its target of 49,000 ft as early as 1993, but something unexpected was lurking in the remote Russian tundra. Strangely, as the hole got closer and closer to the center of the Earth, something completely unexpected happened and changed everything.

For the first 3,000 meters, temperatures inside the hole were more or less in line with what the researchers expected to find. But after that, the heat levels increased a lot faster. And by the time they got close to the target, the hole had heated up to a whopping 180 C (356 F), about 80 C (176 F) more than expected.

But that’s not all. The researchers also discovered that the rock at those depths was less dense than they imagined which led to these high temperatures. They knew that their equipment would not last in those conditions so the team abandoned the project. At that time, it had been 22 years since they started drilling.

Researchers were able to learn fascinating things before the project stopped. For instance, at a depth of about six kilometers, they discovered small marine plant fossils. These were in great condition considering how long they had been locked under rock that was probably more than two billion years old. However, they made an even more exciting discovery. Measuring seismic waves, experts previously established that the rock beneath our feet changes from granite to basalt every three to four kilometers below the surface. But the team discovered that this was not the case.

The researchers found only granite, even at the deepest point in the hole, which led them to think that the change in seismic waves was the result of metamorphic differences in the rock. But that wasn’t all either.

They also discovered flowing water several kilometers beneath the Earth, at depths where no one thought it could exist. But if some are very enthusiastic about subway water as it could prove biblical floods, it seems to be the result of strong pressure forcing oxygen and hydrogen atoms out of the rock. The impermeable rocks then trap the newly formed water beneath the surface.

At the time of the closure, the Soviet Union had just collapsed, and in 1995 the project was abandoned. Today, the site is listed as an environmental hazard, although visitors can still see some of it in the nearby town of Zapolyarny, about ten kilometers away. And they still hold the record, the hole remaining the deepest man-made point on the planet. However, the race isn’t over yet. In the world’s oceans, the International Ocean Discovery Program is still drilling into the seafloor, fighting faulty equipment and extreme temperatures to discover secrets beneath the surface.

The Pentagon U₣❍ unit says it has found “off-world vehicles” that are “not made on this Earth”

For decades, disclosure has been one of, if not the most talked about topics in the UFO and alien community.

Now, it’s happening right before our very eyes, and most of us seem to be oblivious to the magnitude of what is actually going on.

A consultant for the Pentagon U.F.O program is speaking out about retrievals from “off-world vehicles not made on this earth.”

Eric W. Davis, an astrophysicist who worked as a subcontractor and then a consultant for the Pentagon U.F.O. program since 2007 told the New York Times he gave a classified briefing to a Defense Department agency as recently as March about the alleged “off-world” vehicles. He also gave classified briefings on retrievals of unexplained objects to staff members of the Senate Armed Services Committee and the Senate Intelligence Committee last October.
Instead, it has been mostly cast aside as an afterthought in a time of coronavirus hysteria.

The briefing focused on what Davis called “off-world vehicles not made on this Earth.”

In other words Davis, who spent years working as a consultant for the Pentagon UFO program and now works as a defense contractor, has officially spilled the beans: spaceships, aka UFOs, are real, and it’s something we have most likely known about for a very long time.

Davis said that in some cases he had failed to determine the source of recovered materials, leading him to conclude, “We couldn’t make it ourselves.”

UFO Program “No Longer Has to Hide in the Shadows”
Davis’s bombshell quote came in the latest UFO report from the New York Times, which has owned the beat for the past several years according to a report from

In December 2017, a paper reported on the existence of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, an effort by the Pentagon to investigate UFOs that was supposedly ended in 2012.

Hailed as a “historical inflection point in our attitudes regarding UFOs,” it implied the same message as the most recent one; that is to say that UFOs are in fact real and they are not from this Earth as many skeptics have claimed.

Though the Pentagon had said it disbanded a program to investigate unidentified flying objects, the Times reported that investigations into encounters between military pilots and unidentified aerial vehicles continue under a renamed program — the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force — inside the Office of Naval Intelligence. While the program is not classified, it deals with classified matters.

A Senate committee report last month said the program was to “standardize collection and reporting” on sightings of unexplained aerial vehicles. The program was ordered to report at least some of its findings to the public within 180 days after the passing of the intelligence authorization act.

It is now moving up to a whole new era of “transparency,” according to Luis Elizondo, the ex-director of its predecessor program.

“It no longer has to hide in the shadows,” he said.

Known as the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force, it is now obligated to make further reports public.

Will Task Force Ever Present Physical Proof?

While the announcement is still being digested by most people, the time is now to buckle up for Round Two: further announcements and reports are expected to be released in the coming weeks, months, and years, as more and more findings are made public.

The big question is whether or not physical evidence will be presented, in the form of an actual craft, or perhaps even artifacts or instruments from other worlds, spaceships and even alien beings themselves.

Elizondo, who took over the lead position of the Defense Department’s UFO program in 2010, is “among a small group of former government officials and scientists with security clearances who, without presenting physical proof, say they are convinced that objects of undetermined origin have crashed on earth with materials retrieved for study.”

The program was started about a decade ago and budgeted at $22 million according to the Times. It went by AATIP, for Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program, and has also been referred to as the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program.

The Pentagon program’s previous director, Luis Elizondo, a former military intelligence official who resigned in October 2017 after 10 years with the program, said he is convinced that objects of undetermined origin have crashed on earth with materials retrieved for study. Elizondo’s belief is shared by a group of former government officials as well as scientists and security officials, all of whom cannot present physical proof.
Its original purpose was to investigate flying foreign weapon threats, both ones being utilized and developed now or ones that could be developed within the next 40 years. Within this process, there is a distinct chance that it may have stumbled upon the most significant UFO-related discovery in modern American history.

Former Senate majority leader Harry Reid has also weighed in, saying “he believed crashes of objects of unknown origin have occurred,” and that any materials that have been recovered should be studied.

Davis, who has previously created a report urging the federal government to research time travel through wormholes, said he has studied the documents intensively.

He came to a sobering conclusion, according to the report from NYMag: “We couldn’t make (the alleged otherworldy alien spaceships) ourselves.”
