Submission + - Satellite spots massive object hidden under the frozen wastes of Antarctica ( 5

schwit1 writes: SCIENTISTS believe a massive object which could change our understanding of history is hidden beneath the Antarctic ice.

The huge and mysterious “anomaly” is thought to be lurking beneath the frozen wastes of an area called Wilkes Land. It stretches for a distance of 151 miles across and has a maximum depth of about 848 metres. This “Wilkes Land gravity anomaly” was first uncovered in 2006, when NASA satellites spotted gravitational changes which indicated the presence of a huge object sitting in the middle of a 300 mile wide impact crater.

I back up onto both a local RAID-5 and to cloud storage (I use Backblaze) and though I have had several primary drive crashes in the last few years, the backups saved the day.
