Weird Video of Scientists Dropping Ice Down a Super Deep Hole Is Totally Mesmerising
Imagine you’re a scientist working in Antarctica.
You’ve suffered through freezing temperatures, drilled ice cores to understand more about our ancient planet, and of course, thrown some ice down a really deep hole to hear it go ‘pew’.
Yes, that’s the sort of pastime people discover while living in some of the most inhospitable parts of our planet.
Thanks to isotope geochemist John Andrew Higgins on Twitter, you too can experience this weird joy, as researchers have recorded the fantastic sounds of a block of ice falling down a 137-metre (450-foot) drill hole.
