6 strange mysteries exist right on Earth but have not been solved yet
Every day that passes, scientists are still working hard to learn and discover new lands, even new wonders on the blue planet. People are sometimes amazed at what they find. Because it looks more strange and wonderful than people can imagine. Here are 6 of the countless strange mysteries waiting to be deciphered and learn more.
1. The strange mystery of the Magnetic Hills, India
If you park your car at the bottom of this hill, you will witness a “left-side” scene. The car will slowly run to the top of the hill. It was as if the area’s gravity had reversed.
Magnetic Hill, also known simply as “magnetic hill”, is located about 30km from Leh city, in the state of Jammu and Kashmir (India), about 30km. This site is located at an altitude of 4200m above sea level, welcoming guests with a curious sign: “Magnetic Hill – The Phenomenon That Defies Gravity”.
The locals used to believe that there was a way to heaven. However, only those who are worthy go straight to this path. On the contrary, the unworthy will never be found. Visitors from all over the world have flocked here to experience and testify that there is a strange phenomenon on this hill. They also put forward many theories with scientific explanations to explain the phenomenon of anti-gravity, disproving many superstitious stories.
Many also believe that it is all just an illusion. The scenery here “tricks” your eyes into thinking it’s an uphill, but it’s actually a downhill.
2. Stone tombs
Large stone slabs from ancient times arranged in the shape of a “table” are found in many places, such as Roknia, Korea, China, India, Israel, Scandinavia, Russia.
Archaeologists believe that these are the tombs of ancient priests, in the Neolithic period, about 6,000 years ago.
It is extraordinary that these dolmens have the ability to change the speed of rotation of the clock hands. They even make electronic devices work abnormally.
3. Eternal “flame” waterfall, USA
That is the scene in Chestnut Ridge Park, New York (USA). This waterfall is as normal as many other places. But the special feature is that there is a fire that is always smoldering inside the cliff, right behind the water.
The phenomenon of ignition is explained by the fissures in the rock emitting natural gas. The flame also sometimes dims but then flares up again. It is also because of this strangeness that many stories have been woven. Some people even believe that whoever makes the fire light up will have good luck and wealth.
4. Shillin Stone Forest, China
These elongated rock formations are believed to have appeared 270 million years ago. Currently, they are located about 120km from Kunming, Yunnan province (China). It was originally the bottom of a large sea. The water gradually dried up, revealing huge limestone mountains. The erosion of wind and water creates impressive rock formations.
The stalactites stretch over an area of about 400 square kilometers, creating a giant labyrinth that is easy to feel overwhelmed. In particular, below these mountains there is an underground river. Every year, from August to November, this underground river creates a vortex that lasts only a few minutes and then dissipates rapidly every 30 minutes.
5. River of 5 colors, Colombia
This river is about 100km long, located in the Serrania de la Macarena National Park, Meta province of Colombia. This is considered one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the South American country thanks to its vivid colors.
In fact, this river also looks like any other river. But in the summer, it turns into a multicolored “carpet”. All thanks to the aquatic plants that live on the bottom of the river. They contribute to the river being red, pink, blue, green and yellow.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of tourists flock here to see this special phenomenon.
6. Bloodfall, Antarctica
In 1911, British geologist Griffith Taylor stumbled upon an ice valley in East Antarctica with a blood-red outflow of water. The contrast between the blue-white of the ice and the blood-red color of the water makes the waterfall look like a monster sealed in ice.
For a century, the blood-red waterfall amid the white landscape of Antarctica has become a difficult topic for scientists to understand.
In 2017, researchers at the Universities of Alaska Fairbanks and Colorado, USA, said they had found the answer. Accordingly, the amniotic color is due to the salt water at the waterfall being dyed by iron-containing minerals. When water periodically falls on the ice and is exposed to air, the iron converts to iron oxide, giving it a deep red color.
