From massive pyramids hidden in the depths of the ice, considered as evidence of ancient civilizations that inhabit the continent now frozen, to extremely ancient maps that show ice-free Antarctica, secret bases and UFOs, Antarctica is shrouded in mysteries.
The idea that Antarctica is not just an icy wasteland has fascinated researchers, authors and conspiracy theorists for decades. What makes the frozen continent the target of innumerable theories, sometimes too crazy? Some would say that it is because it is “isolated” from the rest of the world, and that access to Antarctica is almost impossible for “normal” people.
It is one of the largest unexplored places on the face of the planet and beyond the fact that it is covered with ice, it is also wrapped in innumerable mysteries. So, what about the frozen continent?
If you ask the scientists, they would probably answer that the frozen continent is a “time capsule” that contains information long since lost about life on Earth (at a time when humans were not yet here) and even hides secrets about our solar system too. However, if we ask others, the answers go beyond science fiction. From the claims of the pyramids in the frozen continent to the bases of aliens, UFOs and lost civilizations, it seems that Antarctica has it all.
The pyramids of Antarctica
Perhaps one of the most interesting topics when talking about Antarctica and its mysteries are the supposed pyramids located there, covered by thick layers of ice.
According to many authors, there are secrets in Antarctica that are hidden away from the public. Numerous images have emerged in recent years showing what appear to be supermassive structures in Antarctica. Some of these “frozen monuments” have even been compared to majestic ancient structures such as the Pyramids of Giza.
But … could there really have been pyramids in Antarctica? Well, science says no, but there are some reasons why many authors and UFO hunters would say yes. Probably one of the most mysterious things about Antarctica is an ancient map that illustrates the continent now covered in ice without it.
The map of Piri Reis is one of the most controversial letters ever discovered on Earth, and according to some interpretations, it represents Antarctica, the fifth largest continent on Earth, free of ice. Composed by the Turkish admiral Piri Reis, the map is a combination of much older maps, around 20 ancient letters, which have since been lost.
So who could have mapped the mysterious continent at a time when it was free of ice? Millions of years ago? Many would say well; it may have been mapped by the builders of the Antarctic Pyramids. Several images have been circulating online allegedly testing pyramidal structures buried under Antarctica. It is said that the images were obtained through the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program, an international submarine exploration project.
While many argue that these structures are evidence of a lost civilization long ago inhabited Antarctica in the distant past, scientists remain skeptical that these are just mountains of strange shapes and no evidence of ancient civilizations. The truth is that expeditions to Antarctica are almost impossible, extremely expensive and very dangerous. Without adequate equipment, a human being would not last long in this frozen continent.
The pyramids are not the only thing in Antarctica, and apparently, there are more structures .. Remains of ancient cities? If we take a look at eastern Antarctica, we will find a strange oval structure that protrudes from the ground. Measuring about 400 feet in width, the oddly shaped structure has been called as “icy” evidence that there are structures buried in Antarctica.
Over the years, satellite images of Antarctica have revealed a significant number of strange “structures” under the ice. Some authors and UFO hunters believe that these strangely shaped formations are just some of the many evidences that point to the fact that Antarctica was the home of an ancient advanced civilization. Pareidolia or not? It’s up to you!
Bases of aliens and UFOs
But if you are not really convinced of the pyramids in Antarctica, and the ancient cities that are hidden under thick layers of ice, you may be inclined towards the supposed existence of alien bases and UFOs in Antarctica. UFO hunters believe they have found countless strange things using satellite imagery and Google Earth. Many of these UFO hunters like SecureTeam10 believe they have discovered extraterrestrial objects and even disk-shaped objects in Antarctica.
Massive structures hidden in the depths of the ice
There is more in Antarctica than we expected. According to the UFO Hunters, not only in Antarctica, where the pyramids, strangely shaped structures and disk-shaped objects are located, there is a 150-mile anomaly hidden in the depths of the continent. Located in an area called Wilkes Land in Antarctica, it is believed that the strange anomaly covers an area about 250 kilometers wide and reaches a depth of about 800 meters below the surface. But if you do not agree with the pyramids, extraterrestrials and UFOs, Antarctica has more to offer, apparently …
Nazi secret bases
It is not a mystery that the Nazis were extremely interested in obtaining secret knowledge, technology and weapons that could have given them an advantage in the war. Around the world, the Nazis built shelters and secret bases, and there are some who are convinced that they built a massive base in Antarctica. During the Second World War, the Nazis carried out many strange experiments with technologies that the world had never seen before.
In the search for more weapons, mythical artifacts and even otherworldly technology, supposedly the Nazis came to Antarctica where they built a secret base called “Base 211”, which original could add. It is said that New Swabia, also known as Neuschwabenland, located between 20 ° E and 10 ° W in the Land of Queen Maud, is where an Antarctic Nazi exploration team found parts with fresh water, ice-free areas and vegetation.
As you can see, Antarctica is a corner of our planet with many mysteries still unsolved. What do you think of this enigmatic place?
