A recent find made in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Mexico is attracting the interest of researchers who are interested in learning more about the history of our planet.
The recently discovered phenomenon is the second deepest blue hole in the globe, and it has the potential to provide previously unknown information about the history of Earth as well as circumstances in remote regions of the galaxy. The discovery was made just lately.
The secrets of our planet may lie within the depths of an enormous blue hole discovered in the ocean.
To put it plainly, the gaping hole that can be seen off the shore of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico is incredibly enormous. The magnificent underwater cave has a floor space that is 147,000 square feet and a depth of approximately 900 feet.
It is the second largest one ever found, behind the Dragon Hole in the South China Sea, which was discovered in 2016 and has a depth of more than 290 meters (980 feet).
The erosion of the limestone that created these formations was caused by the ocean. It is believed that the massive holes were created throughout various ice ages, which resulted in coastal areas being flooded and eroded by sea water. This allowed for the formation of the holes. These tunnels became submerged when the sea level rose, and ever since then, they have been hidden from view.
