A Massive Heat Source Was Just Discovered Under Antarctica, Driving Ice Melt And Volcanism

  A Massive Heat Source Was Just Discovered Under Antarctica, Driving Ice Melt And Volcanism Recent discoveries have revealed just how volcanic Antarctica really is, despite being hidden underneath massive ice sheets. However, up until now, there remained significant debate as to what is causing the unusual amount of volcanic activity under an area covered in ice. Recent research found the source of magma that is fueling the volcanoes underneath Antarctica. The source, a massive upwelling of mantle magma, also known as a hotspot. This is a similar mechanism that produced the Hawaiian Islands and fuels volcanic and geothermal activity in Yellowstone.

Archeologists hope the secret temple will help them learn more about the Mayan Snake God . Based on human remains experts previously discovered , the Mayans may have used cenotes for human sacrifices.

A stunning discovery was recently made when archaeologist discovered a secret passageway beneath a 1,000-year-old Mayan pyramid. The pyramid devoted to Kukulcan, the Mayan snake god , was discovered by Spanish explorers in the 1500s.

The left side of the pyramid creates the optical illusion of a snake's shadow. In 2015, archaeologists discovered cenote in the area. Recent months of exploration using imaging techniques led to the discovery of a secret underground passageway that could possibly lead to the entrance of the cenote.: The Kukulkan pyramid at the Chichen Itza site in Yucatan, southeastern Mexico, in 2006.  © Photo: ELIZABETH RUIZ/AFP/Getty Images The Kukulkan pyramid at the Chichen Itza site in Yucatan, southeastern Mexico, in 2006.  Archaeologists discovered a secret passageway beneath a 1,000-year-old Mayan pyramid, a finding that could lead to further discoveries about the ancient civilization, The Yucatan Times reported on Sunday.

Researchers with the Great Mayan Aquifer Project discovered the Chichen Itza passageway and explored it through electrical tomography hoping to discover cenotes, or water-filled caves, underneath the Kukulcan pyramid. Based on human remains experts previously discovered, the Mayans may have used cenotes for human sacrifices. Spanish explorers found the pyramid in the 1500s.

Mysteries of the Mayan ' snake god ' could be revealed after secret passageway to an underground cave is discovered beneath 1000-year-old Mexican pyramid. Experts believe this passageway will reveal more about the Mayan ‘ snake god ’.

Archaeologists believe further exploration of the underground passage will lead to more information about the Kukulcan, the Mayan snake god who bears the likeness of a feathered serpent and exited a cave after an earthquake.

Researchers with the Great Mayan Aquifer Project, led by underwater archaeologist Guillermo de Anda, used imaging techniques, such as ground penetrating lidar, which sent electromagnetic signals through the pyramid, to advance their exploration. Although the team discovered the passageway, they have not explored it yet because it is blocked by the Ossuary, a smaller burial chamber.

In 2015, the existence of cenote was found in the area. Researchers now hope to find the passageway leading to the entrance. De Anda spoke to El Universal about the blockage.

“Through the Ossuary, we can enter the cave beneath the structure and there we found a blocked passageway, probably closed off by the ancient Mayans themselves,” he said. “We will enter again and this time we will try to open it to see if the passageway leads us to the entrance of the cenote beneath the pyramid.”

“First we want to prove it exists because no one has seen it, we only have the images; then we’d have to explore it,” he added.

The exploration was a collaboration between the National Geographic Society, the Mexican National Institute of Anthropology and History and James Brady, a researcher with California State University and a trailblazer in Mayan cave exploration.
