Today I would like to talk about another unexplained mystery...
In 1949 a man named Vadim Kolpakov set out to explore the uncharted depths of Siberia. The local Yakut people told Vadim about an area called "The Fire Eagle's Nest" and told him that he shouldn't go there because it was evil. The warnings told of a place where people would disappear at worst and feel "unwell" at best. Being the man of Science (Geologist) that Vadim was he didn't believe the warnings and struck out for that area. Soon after arriving he discovered an enormous crater. The crater was the size of a "25-story building" and was surrounded by enormous trees, but nothing would grow on the crater itself.
Around the crater the trees seem to grow at a hyper-natural rate which is similar to how the trees grew after the Chernobyl disaster. Could this be caused by radiation? Others have a more creative theory... That a UFO may be buried below the crater. The crater appears to be between 250 to 500 years old, but some others theorize that it was the test site or a crash site of a nuclear missile. The Russians now and in the past have often covered up information about Cold War history, but it seems like scientists would be able to identify a nuclear created crater pretty easily.
This is from the Daily Mail newspaper in the UK:
"Scientists now think that there is something with a high iron content and ferromagnetic materials buried between 100 and 150 metres underneath the crater.They believe it could be a meteorite or another incredibly dense object, but they are not certain.The fact that the crater is ‘alive’ as its shape changes constantly - by rising and falling - and that the trees nearby the site are reported to grow abnormally fast, adds to the mystery."
It appears that something is buried there, what do you think it could be?
