Default A massive crater hides beneath Greenlandís ice

Thereís something big lurking beneath Greenlandís ice. Using airborne ice-penetrating radar, scientists have discovered a 31-kilometer-wide crater ó larger than the city of Paris ó buried under as much as 930 meters of ice in northwest Greenland.

Very cool. It must be hard to have found something like that but not be able to get down to explore it. The good news is, they might be able to get to it before too long.

I was wondering if there is a pyramid in the middle of the crater, giving of heat, but apparently not. It's probably better that way, too.

The Alfred-Wegener-Institute that provided the ultra-wideband radar has more information. It's named for Alfred Wegener, polar researcher and father of the theory of continental drift, who was a lecturer in my hometown Marburg in the early 20th century.
