Are there or have there been e̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳s in Antarctica? In the conspiracy community, it has been time talking about the idea that a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s or a lost civilization would have inhabited Antarctica in the past. And the truth is that it is not a theory as crazy as parce if we consider that we are currently being visited by a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s. In the last decade, we have seen a lot of evidence that U̳F̳O̳s are real, and that some of them could be of e̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ origin. In fact, at the end of 2017, the US government first published an official video of one of these mysteries unidentified flying objects.
And this takes us directly to Hitler’s Germany, which was extremely interested in Antarctica. Many historians attribute this interest to the occult background of the elite of the Nazi party, some of which were members of the so-called Thule Society. By studying the translations of old Tibetan, Indian and Greek texts, they came to believe that our land is hollow and inhabited within it. It is supposed that Ultima Thule was the name of the capital of the Hyperborean continent, much older than Atlantis and Lemuria. According to Thule’s texts, the Hyperboreans were highly technologically advanced. Leaving aside myths and legends, Antarctica is much more than an inhospitable land of snow and ice. And if anyone has any doubts, you only have to see an image published by NASA on your Twitter account that shows a perfectly rectangular iceberg.
The mysterious iceberg in Antarctica
NASA has caused an earthquake in social networks after posting an image of a perfectly rectangular iceberg in Antarctica. It is a huge block of ice, beautiful and rectangular appearance. An object of almost geometric perfection that enters a polar sea between the chaotic irregularity of the ice world and that evokes the popular monolith of “2001: a space odyssey”.
“From yesterday’s #IceBridge flight: you can see a tabular iceberg on the right, floating among the sea ice right next to the Larsen C ice shelf, “ writes the NASA ICE account (@NASA_ICE) with the image. “The sharp angles and the flat surface of the iceberg indicate that it has probably recently detached from the ice shelf.”
The e̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ theory
But NASA did not expect that its image caused a stir among Twitter users, who offered all kinds of theories to explain the strange formation. The explanation of the conspiracy theorists is that the supposed “iceberg” was sent by a very technologically advanced race. The goal of “formation” is to look for other forms of life and, when possible, help them move forward. It would be something like a space probe.
But the most surprising thing is that this “monolith” would have been on Earth since the dawn of humanity. But now, NASA would have been able to detect the strong magnetic field of the probe in Antarctica. And they would have recognized it immediately as an object sent by an advanced species. It is then when the “iceberg” sends a signal to the creators, letting them know that we have advanced enough to discover their messages. Of course, the next step would be e̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ contact, which could happen in the near future.
The scientific explanation
Undoubtedly, for the skeptics, this iceberg was not deposited in this world by e̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳s. In contrast, Kelly Brunt, the NASA glaciologist and professor at the University of Maryland, explained that the ice block was probably formed by a process that is quite common at the edges of icebergs.
“So, this is what has happened,” Brunt told the scientific news website Live Science. “There are two types of icebergs: we have the kind that everyone can imagine in their head that sank the Titanic and that they look like prisms or triangles on the surface and you know they have a crazy subsoil. And then you have what’s called ‘tabular icebergs’. “
According to Brunt, the tabular icebergs are broad, flat and long like a sponge cake. They separate from the edges of the ice shelves: large blocks, connected to the ground, but floating in the water found in frozen places like Antarctica. It seems this wine from the Larsen C ice shelf in the Antarctic Peninsula. He added that tabular icebergs are formed through a process that is a bit like a nail that grows too much and breaks at the end. They are often rectangular and geometric.
“What makes this unusual is that it looks almost like a square, ” Brunt explained.
For the NASA glaciologist it is difficult to distinguish the size of the iceberg in this photo, but it is probably more than a kilometer wide . And, as with all icebergs, the visible part on the surface is only the top 10 percent of its mass. The rest is hidden underwater. In the case of tabular icebergs, this subsurface mass is usually of a regular and geometric appearance, similar to what is seen above.
It is clear that Brunt’s explanation has not served to prevent the spread of alternative theories, mainly because the tabular icebergs do not show such a perfect form and Brunt himself acknowledged that it is quite unusual.
Now, if we take for granted the hypothesis that it is an e̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ probe, the question would be: Why has NASA shared the image publicly? Maybe he’s sending some kind of message?
