Hell’s Door vs. the Incandescent Light Bulb
In the middle of the Karakoum (Turkmenistan) desert, close to the tiny nomadic village of Darvaza, there is a crater about 100 meters in diameter and more than 25 meters deep. It is called “Hell’s Door”. Inside this well, a fire has been burning for more than 40 years.
A Soviet prospecting mission began here in the fifties. In 1971, a drilling operation exposed an underground cavity that discharged enormous quantities of gas. Thinking the supply of gas would last but a few weeks, Soviet engineers decided to torch the hole. And it’s been burning ever since. The intense heat coming from the crater allows visitors to approach Hell’s Door only for a few minutes at a time because of the unbearable temperature.
40 years of intense, volcanic heat emitted by a massive, burning hellhole.
For the children. Oh, and the global warming scam, too. But mostly the children. And Ewoks.
