ODESSA: Neuschwabenland? – Tunnels as tall as the Eiffel Tower discovered under Antarctic ice sheets

Source – dailymail.co.uk

– I absolutely had to blog about this one, since so many people sent me versions of this story, and because I’ve written about Antarctica in conjunction with the persistent postwar rumors of some sort of Nazi base there, and because of the persistent rumors of “high strangeness” on the southern polar continent.

Tunnels as tall as the Eiffel Tower discovered under Antarctic ice sheets

Here’s the crux of the story:

Researchers from a number of UK universities and the British Antarctic Survey – a research centre based on the continent – detected the tunnels when they flew a plane over the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf in West Antarctica.

Radar from the plane, as well as satellite photos, revealed that ridges and cavities on the surface of the ice sheet corresponded to tunnels lying at its base.

The 820-foot tunnels are nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower – which measures just over 987 feet – and more than four times as tall as Tower (Bridge) – which comes in at 213 feet.

Researchers concluded that the placement of the tunnels means that they were most likely formed from meltwater – water released from melting ice – that flowing underneath the ice sheet, over land, and into the ocean.

The data revealed that water moved beneath the ice in concentrated channels, similar to rivers. (Emphasis added)

This intrigues me for the obvious reason that it appears to confirm in some respects those persistent stories about Nazi bases in Antarctica that have been around since the Nazi Neuschwabenland expedition to the continent in late 1938 and early 1939, that I review in my books Reich of the Black Sun, and again in Roswell and the Reich. These rumors have always included the idea, in some circles, that the Nazis actually built and maintained research facilities on the continent for the development of advanced and exotic technologies, a view which I have disputed and continue to dispute, simply because such a possibility would seem to be beyond the logistical capabilities of the German navy during the war, and more importantly, when more secure, less logistically vulnerable possibilities existed for the placement of such facilities in southern Latin America.

But the presence of such tunnels, of such a large scale, hollowed out but under-ice flows of water, suggest the possibility, one which I have entertained as a distinct possibility, of hidden u-boat bases under the ice. Such possibilities would have been within the capabilities of the German navy, and such bases would have been of value for a variety of reasons.

So let’s indulge in our trademark high octane speculation once again. Why would one look for such tunnels in the first place, and why would it be the British doing it? the geological and scientific reasons are fairly obvious and do not need to be rehearsed. It’s the hidden possibilities, the historical ones, that intrigue me. Tunnels of such size could hide any number of things, large things, and thus perhaps one is looking at yet another attempt to corroborate the existence of lost secret Nazi bases, or even something more ancient. The discovery of the tunnels(or perhaps, re-discovery) places the famous expedition of Admiral Byrd, Operation Highjump, in late 1946 and early 1947, once again into a unique light, for let it be recalled that this expedition was outfitted for a stay of several months, and yet, only stayed for a few weeks, when the Admiral called it quits, and headed back to the USA, giving an interview with the El Mercurio newspaper of Santiago, Chile, on the way back, in which he warned that the USA would have to prepare defenses against “enemy fighters that can fly from pole to pole with tremendous speed.”

British scientists discovered the 820-foot tunnels in West Antarctica

They were detected on airborne radar imaging and satellite photos: A team of British scientists has discovered tunnels that are almost as tall as the Eiffel Tower under an ice shelf in Antarctica.

Researchers from a number of UK universities and the British Antarctic Survey – a research centre based on the continent – detected the tunnels when they flew a plane over the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf in West Antarctica.

Radar from the plane, as well as satellite photos, revealed that ridges and cavities on the surface of the ice sheet corresponded to tunnels lying at its base.

The 820-foot tunnels are nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower – which measures just over 987 feet – and more than four times as tall as Tower Bride – which comes in at 213 feet.

Researchers concluded that the placement of the tunnels means that they were most likely formed from meltwater – water released from melting ice – that flowing underneath the ice sheet, over land, and into the ocean.

The data revealed that water moved beneath the ice in concentrated channels, similar to rivers.

Scientists previously thought that meltwater flowed underneath ice sheets in more evenly-spread, thin, continuous sheets.

Researchers used a specially-modified Twin Otter aircraft to make the discovery.

The plane, designed to operate in remote environment, was fitted with remote sensors that provided scientists with data on the land, ice and sea that it flew over.

Scientists from the British Antarctic Survey Base and researchers from a number of UK universities made the discovery at the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf in West Antarctica.

Specially-designed radar equipment deciphered the tunnels under the ice – it can also be used to pick out layers within the ice itself.

Longer-term monitoring from the air can be used to record the break-up of ice sheets or atmospheric changes.

The British team will now use its newfound knowledge of the under-ice tunnels to predict how exactly that ice shelf will melt in response to climate change.

The researchers published a paper about their work in the journal Nature Geoscience.

  1. See the you tube US Navy documentary “The Secret Land “1947-1949.Operation Hgh-Jump was launched to explore Antartica militarily,and they landed seaplanes in desert lakes where the temperature was 38 degrees. Antartica and the secret. Agenda of the Cabal is one of the worlds greatest secrets. I wonder what 75 years of secrecy and trillions of black op $$ has done to create a new ‘Homeland” for the Global Mafia.

  2. Secretary of th Navy Admiral James Foresstal was murdered in 1949 to keep the secret about the oil and mineral wealth of diamonds and gold and extraterrestrial artifacts hidden.
