According to scientists there’s a massive object hidden under the ice in the Antarctic and it could change how we understand history. The scientists noticed a huge and mysterious anomaly just underneath the frozen wastes in an area known as Wilkes Land.
Here’s an image of Antarctica, the frozen landmass at the south pole of our planet.
It’s almost impossible to research the frozen wastelands in Antarctica because they’re so barren and inhospitable, stretching over 151 miles across and a maximum depth of about 848 meters.
According to some researchers this massive object is what was left after a massive asteroid hit the area, twice as large as the rock that annihilated the dinosaurs.
If their speculations are correct, it’s probably what caused the Permian–Triassic extinction event which killed 96% of Earth’s sea creatures and up to 70% of the vertebrate organisms living on land.
The conspiracy theorists, on the other hand, have their own theories, some individuals are even saying it could be a massive UFO base or a portal to a mysterious underworld called the Hollow Earth.
The “Wilkes Land gravity anomaly” was first noticed in 2006, when NASA satellites picked up the gravitational changes which pointed out there’s a huge object smack in the center of a 300 mile wide impact crater.
Here’s Wilkes Land – circled in red.

As with all things inexplicable, the internet is on fire, everyone has a theory of their own and the discussions are spiraling out of control. Even the UFO hunting crew, Secure Team 10 is on top of the matter, posting a video on YouTube about this mysterious anomaly.
The video narrator says:
“To this day, scientists have no idea or way to discover exactly what is buried deep under this thick ice shelf.”
“This continent has been shrouded in a mystery of its own for years now.”
Secure Team 10’s theory is that this is where the Nazis built secret bases during World War II, designed to be used by flying saucers.
They added: “There is some evidence of this coming to light in recent years, which images purporting to show various entrances built into the side of mountains, with a saucer shape and at a very high altitude. This begs the question: how would you enter these entrances without something that could fly and was the same shape as hole itself?”
The UFO hunting crew also mentioned that the US Navy has led a team on a mission to Antarctica to investigate this strange anomaly. The expedition was dubbed Operation High Jump, and many conspiracy theorists say that it was the army’s attempt to locate the entrance to a secret world hidden under the surface of our Earth.
Returning to a more realistic point of view, the scientist who discovered the anomaly strongly believes that this anomaly is proof of a huge impact crater, which may not be as scandalous as UFOs but is an incredible discovery nonetheless.
Ralph von Frese, who back in 2006 when the crater was first discovered was a professor of geological sciences at Ohio State University says:
“This Wilkes Land impact is much bigger than the impact that killed the dinosaurs, and probably would have caused catastrophic damage at the time. All the environmental changes that would have resulted from the impact would have created a highly caustic environment that was really hard to endure. So it makes sense that a lot of life went extinct at that time.”
